Sheriff Baca is introducing a new, monthly roundtable meeting. These meetings will be an open-forum format and media members are encouraged to ask any questions relating to the LASD. Lead Detectives of some noteworthy crimes will be available every meeting, and refreshments will be served.
At the first roundtable meeting, besides the homicide and gang investigators present, Deputy Chad Sauter, former offensive tackle for the UCLA Bruin’s football team, will be available. Deputy Sauter has been volunteering his time to coach high school football teams in the inner city. These teams have shown a marked improvement in both academic work, and on the football field. UCLA Head Football Coach Rick Neuheisel is tentatively scheduled to attend and speak on the merits of this program.
