The head of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Investigation was sworn in Monday.

D.A. George Gascon administered the oath of office to Robert Arcos and noted that the bureau is the fourth-largest law enforcement agency in the county.

“Bobby Arcos brings a depth of law enforcement experience and compassion to the District Attorney’s Office,” Gascon said. “I am proud that Bobby has agreed to join my executive management team and will help me fulfill my promises to voters that we will protect our community by preventing crime, reducing recidivism and restoring victims. Together, with other members of the team, we will rely on data, science and research to guide this office into the future.”

Arcos served as an assistant chief at the Los Angeles Police Department and has more than 30 years of policing experience. He joined the department in 1988 and most recently served as director of LAPD’s Office of Operations.

Gascon said Arcos is a reform-minded leader who created lasting relationships with neighborhood advocates, nonprofit organizations, the business community and civic leaders.

He will lead nearly 300 sworn officers supporting the roughly 1,000 deputy district attorneys in Gascon’s office.

The executive management team also includes Interim Chief Deputy District Attorney Joseph Iniguez, Chief of Staff Victoria Adams, Chief Administrative Officer Dorinne Jordan, Assistant District Attorney for Line Operations James Garrison, Special Advisors to the District Attorney Diana Teran, Alisa Blair and Alex Bastian and Community and Government Affairs Liaison Mario Trujillo.
