The accomplished Sheriff signs this typed letter thanking the recipient for commending two officers
Typed letter signed: "Peter" as Sheriff, 1p, 8½x11. County of Los Angeles, Office of the Sheriff, 1962 June 18. To Charles J. Russhon, New York. In part: "Your commendation of our officers was very much appreciated by me. I have passed your letter along to our Personnel Bureau and instructed them to determine the identity of these two men so that copies of your letter may be placed in their performance files…." Peter J. Pitchess (1912-1999) was the 28th Sheriff of Los Angeles County, California. After getting his law degree at the University of Utah, he started his career as a special agent with the FBI where he spent 12 years in Washington, D.C.; El Paso, Texas; Kansas City, Missouri; and Los Angeles. He rose to head the criminal investigative section of the Bureau's Los Angeles field office, resigning in 1952. He was elected Sheriff in 1958 and kept the position until 1982. He is credited with modernizing the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, turning the department into the sixth-largest police department, and the largest sheriff's department, in the United States. Lightly creased. Fine condition.
