The City of West Hollywood is welcoming a new Captain to the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station — the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department has appointed law enforcement veteran Ed Ramirez as the station’s new Captain. He began his new role as Captain on Sunday. He replaces former Captain Sergio Aloma, who was promoted to Commander within the Sheriff’s Department earlier this year.
“On behalf of the City Council, I want to congratulate Edward Ramirez on his appointment to lead the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station as its new Captain,” said West Hollywood Mayor John D’Amico. “This promotion is welcome news. Public safety is job one and Captain Ramirez is a law enforcement veteran who is highly regarded by our community and knows West Hollywood and its unique challenges. We look forward to working with him in his new leadership role at the station.”.
Captain Ramirez has almost 30 years of law enforcement experience, joining the ranks of the Sheriff’s Department in 1990 at the Men’s Central Jail.
During his career, Ramirez has assisted in the creation and implementation of two bureaus: the Education Based Incarceration Bureau and the Population Management Bureau, as well as the Community Re-entry and Resource Center at the Inmate Reception Center.

Ramirez has also been actively involved in the communities in which he’s lived and served, including being a board member for the Boys and Girls Club of Pasadena, and Shelter Partnership, a homeless support organization.
