Sikh Sworn In As Reserve Deputy (Ca, USA)   E-mail 

On the evening of July 27th, Jagjit Singh was sworn into the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department as a reserves officer. He is the first Sikh ever to be sworn into the department with full beard and turban.

Members of the Los Angeles area Sikh community looked on with pride, as Jagjit Singh pioneered the way for Sikhs in California and across the nation, to begin serving in law enforcement agencies.

Jagjit's graduation is the result of about a year and a half of hard work by a four member committee of the California Sikh Council and top brass from the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department. It welcomes the beginning of a new realm of opportunity for Sikhs to serve the community.

This is the first time in the history of the Sikh community in America that Sikhs have been invited to serve in law enforcement and for that we owe a great deal to the true sense of openness, equality and community service of Sheriff Leroy D. Baca.

After the swearing in Jagjit Singh's commanding officers, members of the press, and friends and family all congratulated him on this momentous occasion and appreciated him for his hard work and excellent performance.
