LOS ANGELES, CA — In another demonstration of his extensive coalition of support in the race for Los Angeles County Sheriff, LAX Police Chief Cecil Rhambo earned a powerful endorsement from the California Legislative Black Caucus.
In a letter sent to the campaign announcing their endorsement, the California Legislative Black Caucus commented:
“CLBC recognizes Mr. Rhambo as a respected community leader with a wealth of experience in law enforcement, protecting Los Angeles County citizens for more than 33 years. Mr. Rhambo is currently the Chief of LAX Airport. He has a strong track record of community policing and successfully reducing crime in Compton and South L.A.
He’s organized youth boxing and developed the Community Oriented Policing Bureau, which focused on suppressing violent crime, combatting homelessness, parking enforcement, quality of life programs, youth programs, and the mental health response teams that partnered with psych clinicians county-wide.”
Additionally, California Legislative Black Caucus Chair Steven Bradford released the following statement announcing their enthusiastic support for Rhambo’s campaign:
“I’ve known Cecil for many years and as chair of the Senate Public Safety Committee, I am confident he would be the Sheriff all of LA could be proud of. I know he is the right person to lead the LA County Sheriff Department during this state and national demand for police reform and accountability, and I trust his commitment to bringing desperately-needed transparency, equity, and integrity to the Department.”
