Where is Sheriff Baca?

He's in Pakistan, of course. Baca was reported to have met with officials in Karachi yesterday on a five-day visit in the country. From The News:

Sheriff Baca heads the largest police department in America with over 18,000 sheriffs and several hundred city police personnel.

His recent trip comprises visits to Karachi, Sindh, Islamabad and Lahore. During his meetings with officials, the Sheriff and his delegation discussed matters of street crime, bomb disposal and forensic mobile labs as well as setting up stations and command centers.

Baca has proposed a detailed programme that could be in the best interest of Pakistan and Pakistanís Police Dept. The Sheriff has provided 50 computers to the Sindh Police Dept and also assured the provision of latest equipment to help solve terrorism cases. Besides, four officials of the police dept would be sent for training in fighting street crimes. Similarly, an officer of bomb disposal squad and forensic lab would be sent to US for training.

The story from his stop in Islamabad mistakenly called Baca head of the LAPD.
