LA Police Museum Executive Director Erica Arias

Erica Arias personally knows about the culture of law enforcement. Raised in the San Gabriel Valley, Arias’ father was a sheriff’s deputy.  Throughout her career, she’s consulted and worked with numerous law enforcement agencies, helping them with their business practices, external relations and leadership development.
