Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Armorer

As a Senior Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Armorer, deputies are in charge of maintaining all firearms used by deputies on the department, from handguns and shotguns to rifles and less lethal launchers. Senior Armorers also work in a machine shop using lathes, grinders, and milling machines to repair, modify and fabricate different components for guns.

It is the Armorer’s job to conduct a quarterly inventory of every weapon, as well as receive shipments of ammunition for the more than 8000 deputies on the department. The Armorers conduct presentations on a regular basis for everyone from citizens to department executives. At times they are called into court to testify as experts for a variety of reasons in criminal and civil cases.
