Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca maintained a special hiring program that granted preferential treatment to the friends and relatives of department officials, including some candidates who were given jobs despite having troubled histories, according to interviews and internal employment records reviewed by The Times. The program, known as "Friends of the Sheriff," has been in existence for at least eight years. Some high-ranking sheriff's officials injected themselves into the vetting process to lobby for favored job candidates, records show. Among those hired was a man convicted of sexual battery, according to court records. His friend — and contact with the department — was Baca's driver. Another hired under the program was arrested last week on a federal weapons charge in connection with the FBI's corruption investigation in the sheriff's jails. His tie to the agency was his brother, a deputy. Baca's nephew, Justin Bravo, became a deputy through the program in 2007, even after sheriff's investig ...

Ask a cop:::Talk back: Does Baca deserve 'Sheriff of the Year' award?SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA -- THIS JUST IN..Amid a number of allegations of allegations of abuse and misconduct in his department and an ongoing federal investigation, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca just got a bit of a break. The National Sheriffs' Assn. announced it had named Baca "Sheriff of the Year," out of about 10 nominees from among the roughly 2,700 sheriffs who are members of the organization. A panel of former winners, current sheriffs and corporate sponsors chose Baca after reviewing applications submitted for each of the nominees, a spokesman for the association told The Times' Robert Faturechi. The association noted Baca's efforts to reach out to community religious groups and provide educational opportunities to jail inmates, as well as the size of the Sheriff's Department and relatively low crime rates in its jurisdiction. But the news has drawn mixed results. As Faturechi writes: His spokesman said the honor was appropriate ...
Ideas for tonight's speech at City Council. The Bank controls City Council through this Conspiracy of Developers, Lobbyists, and City Council. For instance, the Campaign Manager for Mayor Prang and Councilman John Duran is the Lobbyist for the Developer of The MTA Proposal, and The Pacific Design Center. And 4 out of 5 City Council Members and The City of West Hollywood are Clients of that Lobbyist, Mr. Steven Afriat, of Afriat Consulting, where this information is documented under "Client List". Incidentally, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca, who launched the manhunt against whistleblower and murderer Christopher Dornan, is a client of Mr. Afriat, as is The Los Angeles Police Department, Los Angeles City Council Members, 3 other cities, 2 State Assemblymen, and one Congressman. The Bank gets the Mortgages on the overdevelopment and passes on the Interest on to the city through this conspiracy of Developers, Lobbyists, and City Councilmembers. Since City Council are Clients of the Lobbyist, they take u ...

Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca said Wednesday he will no longer honor federal requests to hold some undocumented immigrants.
NEWS ALERT 12/06/2012 One day after California Attorney General Kamala Harris advised that compliance with federal requests to detain suspected illegal immigrants for low level crimes is discretionary and not mandatory; Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca reversed his support for this controversial deportation program. Most likely this change will take effect early next year. The new policy applies only for those arrested with misdemeanors who do not have significant criminal records. The Sheriff will no longer hold such individuals for federal immigration detention. However, the Department will still honor federal detention requests for those accused of serious or violent crimes.
