Sheriff Leroy D. Baca and a Persian Kashan Rug
Leroy D. Baca
Sheriff, Los Angeles County and A Kashan Rug
Last night, we had a wonderful Summer Party in the Camden House restaurant in Beverly Hills. The event was sponsored by the Coalition of the Iranian Entrepreneurs, which serves as the Iranian-American chamber of commerce in Los Angeles. There was plenty of Persian food, music and raffles. I had provided a very fine Kashan rug, 3 x 5 foot to be given away by raffle. Sheriff Leroy Baca of the Los Angeles county was the guest of honor and the keynote speaker for the evening. He talked about security and safety. He delivered a very fine speech and talked about his early experiences with Persian culture.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Leroy D. Baca was born in East Los Angeles on May 27, 1942. Believing strongly in education, Sheriff Baca continued his studies. In 1993 Sheriff Baca graduated from the University of Southern California with a Doctorate of Public Administration. He is a life member of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi - USC Chapter.On December 7, 1998, Sheriff Baca was sworn in as Los Angeles County's 30th Sheriff, having been elected by the citizens of Los Angeles County. Sheriff Baca commands the largest Sheriff's Department in the world and supervises more than 13,000 sworn and civilian personnel.
The University of Southern California, USC is my university. I got my second master's degree and my Ph.D. from this fine school. So Sheriff Baca and I are both TROJANS!
Every body enjoyed the speech, Persian food and the music. The event started at 6:00 pm and ended around 11:00 pm.
