Candidate for the Third LA County Supervisoral District, David Hernandez, is proposing a new LA County Department of Corrections as a solution to the recent troubles in LA County Jails.

Hernandez says his plan would help the Sheriff's office to be more competitive in attracting deputy recruits who would not have to spend their first five years working in the jails, only to get snatched up by other local departments before they ever get on the street as a Deputy.
