Stanley Mosk, 24th Attorney General

Photo of Stanley Mosk
Born in San Antonio, TX, on September 4, 1912. A man “committed to progressive democracy . . .," Mosk created new divisions in the Attorney General’s Office to handle anti-trust, constitutional rights, consumer fraud and investment fraud problems. Sponsored and enforced the state’s toughest laws on diploma mills.

Authored some of California’s most progressive legislative proposals in the crime and law enforcement fields, including the measure creating the Commission on Peace Officers’ Standards and Training (POST), which was the first in the nation to make criminals pay for the training of peace officers.

The Commission on POST also enabled local law enforcement to professionalize it's personnel and weed out misfits. Appointed as Associate Justice to California Supreme Court in 1964, and served until his death in June 2001, the longest serving justice in the history of the supreme court.
