Alex Villanueva's narrow victory against Jim McDonnell in the 2018 race for L.A. Sheriff marked the first time in nearly a century that an incumbent L.A. sheriff was voted out of office.

At the time of the election, the Sheriff's Department remained under a cloud of scandals from the administration of former Sheriff Lee Baca, on top of issues like officer transparency, racial profiling and a deputy shortage.

McDonnell, who served as sheriff for four years, ran as a leader who was working to restore "the shine to the badge."

Villanueva, a retired lieutenant, positioned himself as a reformer with a longtime reputation as a maverick.
