Baca Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca and other law enforcement officials from the region will participate Wednesday in an all-day Korean culture workshop.

The event hosted at the Korean Cultural Center in Los Angeles is aimed at getting cops accustomed to “distinctive Korean cultural values and behaviors,” according to a statement issued by Baca.

His tenure as sheriff has been marked by extensive outreach to minority communities, and his office has formed a wide array of ethnic advisory councils, including a European American one.

“An effective community is driven by the strengths of the partnerships within it,” Baca wrote in the statement.
