Sheriff Lee Baca through the years

Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca announced Tuesday he would not seek a fifth term in office and would instead retire at the end of the month. Baca, who spent 48 years with the department, including 15 as sheriff, was at times emotional as he explained his decision, which he said he made three days ago. "I will go out on my terms," Baca, 71, said. "The reasons for doing so are so many, most personal and private."
