Los Angeles County Sheriff  Jim McDonnell stops by today for the first of what will be a monthly check-in with AirTalk.

Much like we do with LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, we’ll chat with the Sheriff about the biggest crime and public safety stories locally and nationally, as well ask take a few calls from our listeners who have questions for the Sheriff.

Today, Larry and the Sheriff will be discussing body cameras, the proposal to build a jail solely to house those in need of correctional rehab, the battle over an emergency radio system that would connect all of L.A.’s first responders and emergency personnel, the easing of Jessica’s Law for some sex offenders, and more.
