LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles County has a new sheriff.

Jim McDonnell was sworn in Monday as the county’s 32nd sheriff. He replaces Lee Baca, who retired in January amid a federal investigation of alleged county jail corruption and abuse.

McDonnell has served more than three decades in law enforcement. He was second-in-command of the Los Angeles Police Department under former Chief Bill Bratton and was chief of the Long Beach department since 2010.
