The Los Angeles Times reveals the existence of little-known state law enforcement officers with little or no training, chosen by themselves or other private parties, with no governmental supervision. Animal control deputies may wear uniforms, carry guns and make arrests, but their ranks are virtually unregulated. The L.A.
