The Employees of Los Angeles County

Los Angeles County is responsible for providing numerous services that affect the lives of all 10 million county residents, the largest county in the nation. Overseen by the first all-women Board of Supervisors and representing 34 departments, the 100,000+ employees of the County mobilized an unprecedented response to the COVID-19 public health emergency in March of 2020. Every Los Angeles County employee has played their part to support our communities through the crisis, and more than 50,000 of them are serving as Disaster Service Workers. These efforts provided COVID-19 testing and vaccinations; shelter for people experiencing homelessness and food for those affected by the economic crisis; life-saving medical care; much-needed mental health services; and support to small businesses.  


Community Colleges of Los Angeles County

Serving one of the most diverse regions in the world, the community colleges across Los Angeles County have served millions of students throughout their history and have provided affordable, accessible and practical education.
