LOS ANGELES COUNTY — Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich released the following statement on the report by the Los Angeles County Citizens Commission on Jail Violence:
“This respected commission of highly esteemed jurists and community leaders has conducted an extensive review and investigation which has resulted in sound and constructive recommendations.
While Sheriff Baca deserves credit for adopting some reforms, these comprehensive recommendations will ensure the accountability and oversight necessary to restore the public’s trust in the jail system.
The Sheriff should take these recommendations very seriously and implement them with the oversight and support of the Board of Supervisors.”
