LASD was founded in the year 1850. The organisation has been active for over 169 years now. It was the first professional based police station in the Los Angeles, USA, area. In the year 1853, the all-volunteer based Los Angeles Rangers were formed, and it was very much specific to Los Angeles, USA, only and thus to assist the LASD. The organisation was soon succeeded by the Los Angeles City Guards, which was another volunteer group. Still, none of the police forces was efficient as the Los Angeles area was very much riddled with crime, violence, gambling, etcetera.
In the year 2007, popular actor Jackie Chan had joined the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department in their own current recruiting campaign. This was very much oriented towards the members of the Asian American community, in order to join the Sheriff’s Department. Jackie Chan was wearing the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy uniform when the announcement with Sheriff Lee Baca was happening. There has been one LASD public service announcement in which Jackie Chan was featured as well. Then in the year 2009, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors had voted to merge the Los Angeles County Office of Public Safety along with the LASD. The merger was completed by the year 2010. In the year 2013, the organisation had faced controversy regarding its jail system, as the Men’s Central Jail and the Twin Towers Correctional Facility were ranked as the two of the ten worst prisons in the USA. The headquarters of the company is based in 211 W Temple Street. The name of the place is Los Angeles, while the name of the state is California, USA. The pin code of the area is 90012.
