Interview: Eric Strong Wants Alex Villanueva’s Seat As L.A County Sheriff

Los Angeles, CA–Eric Strong wants Alex Villanueva’s role as Sheriff and he wants you to vote for him June 7. The Sheriff’s Lieutenant sits down with me to discuss his career in law enforcement that spans almost 3 decades when Strong got his start working with (then) Compton Police Department in 1993.

Strong speaks on issues he views as hindering to building community trust, his plans to address and eradicate gangs in the department, having a spouse who also works with the Sheriff’s, and why he feels that he is the best to represent L.A County in one of the top positions in law enforcement.
