"The Los Angeles Sheriff Civilian Oversight Commission Tuesday condemned the controversial 'Fort Apache' logo Sheriff Alex Villanueva reinstated"

The panel acted despite a surprise appearance by Villanueva. He said the logo is in places not visible to the public, like the station's back door.


Besides being printed on the station's back door, the logo is portrayed in a tiled mosaic in a central hallway, flies on a flag above the station, and appears on station walls, shirt pins and squad car bumper stickers.
The FBI is investigating a secret society of tattooed deputies in East Los Angeles as well as similar gang-like groups elsewhere within the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, multiple people familiar with the inquiry said.
