POSTPONED: March 19 Commission Meeting


Working for transparency with respect to the Sheriff's Department.


March 19 Commission Meeting

In line with the L.A. County Department of Public Health recommendations regarding Coronavirus, the Thursday, March 19 Commission Meeting will be postponed. 

The Department of Public Health advised that "Event organizers should consider postponing or cancelling non-essential community events, especially those that may be attended by the elderly, pregnant women, or people with chronic health conditions."

Commission leadership and staff are working to determine best practices to conduct future meetings. As conditions improve, we will reschedule the meeting.

If you were planning to attend the meeting & would like to share your public comments, we would still love to hear from you. Please take this survey.


The L.A. County Department of Public Health is carefully assessing this situation as it evolves. Public Health continues to recommend that the public do the following to protect themselves and others from respiratory illnesses:

  • Avoid non-essential travel, public gatherings, or places where large groups of people congregate, such as ticketed events (such as theaters, concert halls, and sporting events) if you are at higher risk of getting very sick from infection, such as the elderly (65 or older), people with underlying health conditions, and pregnant women.
  • Avoid travel to all areas where there are outbreaks of COVID-19.
  • Stay home if you are sick. If you are mildly sick with a fever, stay home until you have been fever-free for 72 hours, except to get medical care. Those with high risk factors and who have fever or new or worsening cough, should consider contacting their providers earlier when they are sick.
  • Practice simple social distancing strategies that limit your exposure to others who may be ill (verbal salutations in place of handshakes & hugs, etc.)
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Wash your hands often with soap & water for at least 20 seconds. If soap & water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Cover your coughs & sneezes with a tissue, & then dispose of the tissue & clean your hands immediately. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve (not your hands).
  • Clean & disinfect frequently touched objects & surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes.
  • Get immunized against the flu to protect yourself & your family & reduce the potential strain on the healthcare system that coronavirus may cause.
