There’s a New Undersheriff in Town


Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca (right) celebrated a formal badge-pinning event for Undersheriff Paul Tanaka (center) on July 26 at the City Club in downtown Los Angeles. Several local officials and other well-wishers attended, including City Attorney Carmen Trutanich (left), who presented Tanaka with a congratulatory proclamation. Tanaka, who has been in law enforcement for more than 30 years, was appointed as Baca’s second-in-command in June and will oversee the day-to-day operations of the Sheriff’s Department. He has also served as mayor of Gardena since 2005. (Photos courtesy of Office of the Undersheriff)
