Baca said he would also support a civilian inspector general, saying he was open to a “collaborative selection process,” to which Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky had a sharp reply.
“Stop right there,” Yaroslavsky said. “You’re not gonna select the inspector general. The inspector general as proposed, assuming we endorsed the proposal, is to report to the Board of Supervisors. So the Board of Supervisors is going to select the inspector general.”MORE NEWS: 2 Dead, 1 Critically Injured In Willowbrook Crash Stemming From Pursuit
The scathing report was issued last month, criticizing Baca for the way LA County jails are run. The commission was formed by the supervisors to investigate allegations of inmate abuse.
