L.A. Sheriff Baca Agrees to Reforms

By Alec Weisman   |   Thursday, 04 Oct 2012 01:54 PM

Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca has agreed to broad reforms to improve the management and oversight of his agency, amid allegations of deputy brutality against inmates.
 
The reforms, which strengthen the sheriffs authority and enhance civilian monitoring, come days after a commission appointed by the county Board of Supervisors blamed Baca for his deputies' use of excessive force on the county’s 19,000 inmates, according to the Los Angeles Times.
 
The commission suggested that Baca should get "personally engaged" in oversight of the jails and "hold his high-level managers accountable for failing to address use of force problems" in what the Times described as the largest jail system in the country.
 
Baca said the recommendations would go a long way toward the formation of a "stronger and safer jail" system for the county.
