Lawyer Hernan Vera has been chosen to lead the group that will set up the L.A. County Sheriff's Department oversight committee.

The L.A. County Board of Supervisors approved the committee's formation last month, after much debate. The group aims to provide more transparency into the workings of the division.

Vera speaks to host A Martinez about his role, and what the committee will look like.

An earlier version of this Take Two post incorrectly referred to Hernan Vera’s role in the oversight committee for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Vera is not the head of the committee, but rather leads the working group that will set up the committee. KPCC regrets the error.
