It was the home of Los Angeles County courts, the Los Angeles County Coroner, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office, and the Los Angeles County District Attorney, and was for many years the primary Los Angeles County jail. #LASD #LASDHQ

Around 1939, Sheriff Biscailuz developed the Sheriff's Boys Band. This group of juvenile musicians was organized and trained by Colonel Vesey Walker, an experienced and veteran conductor. Under the sponsorship of the Sheriff's Department they appeared in various cities, proudly representing the finest Sheriff's Deptpartment in the entire country. ##LASD
Another innovative first by Sheriff Biscailuz was the creation of the “Junior Deputy” program in the 30’s. The program has since morphed into today’s Law Enforcement Explorer program. #LASD

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) was formed in 1929 and originally included 280 uniformed men, 80 cars and 225 motorcycles. Prior to that, local police and county sheriff’s routinely enforced traffic laws. The first superintendent of the CHP was Eugene Biscailuz who was then the Undersheriff of Los Angeles County and would later return as Sheriff of Los Angeles County in 1932. #LASD @CHP1929
