Last month, Sheriff Lee Baca Leroy David Baca (b. May 27 1942, East Los Angeles, California) is the Sheriff of Los Angeles County, California.
After graduating from Benjamin Franklin High School (Los Angeles) in 1960, Baca worked his way through East Los Angeles College before starting with the L.A. presented six proposals to relieve jail overcrowding after supervisors requested a review of jail needs following this year's deadly inmate INMATE.

The move could free up room inside the Lynwood facility for about 1,800 male inmates.
This could be the second move for these women, who were sent from Twin Towers to the previously closed Lynwood jail in March to make more room for male inmates in need of high-security settings following racial brawls at Pitchess that left one dead.
At that time, violence among inmates shook the county's jail system, and a second man was killed in a fight in his cell at the Men's Central Jail downtown.
The Castaic Area Town Council recently sent a letter to the board with concerns about possible expansion at Pitchess. Council President Lloyd Carder was troubled that the advisory board was not included in the county's discussion.
``The only thing I was upset about was that we weren't included in the process. We have long worked with the Honor Ranch, jail -- whatever they want to call it,'' he said. ``We have a community outreach group, and they weren't notified.''
Pitchess Commander Don Rodriguez spoke about the sheriff's expansion proposals at the advisory body's monthly meeting in July, which few residents attended.
