The California Legislative Black Caucus (CLBC) endorses Mr. Cecil Rhambo for Los Angeles County Sheriff.

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.

“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,” said Senator Steven Bradford (D-Gardena), Chair of the California Legislative Black Caucus. “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.”

This past year the Black Caucus has authored police reform legislation to include changes in the use of force, banning chokeholds, age requirements of officers, and accountability among other improvements to law enforcement – many of which are shared strategies of Mr. Rhambo as a veteran officer in LA County. If elected, the Black Caucus is confident Mr. Rhambo will enforce these changes and provide solutions to crime both outside and inside the department.
