Justice Department Opens Probe into LA County Sheriff’s Department

The Justice Department has launched a civil investigation into allegations that the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department discriminated against public housing residents and executed warrantless searches.

The Justice Department said it was particularly honing in on members based in the cities of Lancaster and Palmdale.

The investigation will focus on allegations that sheriff’s deputies tried to identify public housing residents during routine traffic stops.

Investigators will also look into allegations that the department conducted warrantless searches of public housing units of African Americans under the guise of conducting compliance inspection checks.

“At times, it is alleged that the deputies approach the Section 8 recipient’s home with guns drawn and in full SWAT armor and conduct searches and questioning themselves, unrelated to the housing program,” the Justice Department alleged.
