About El Monte
With a population of about 114,000, El Monte is the 51st largest city in California. El Monte's slogan is "Welcome to Friendly El Monte" and is also known as "The End of the Santa Fe Trail."
The first Europeans, missionaries and soldiers, arrived in the area in 1769. In 1841, a group of travelers and settlers, now referred to as the Workman-Rowland Party, arrived in la Pueblo of Los Angeles. Real emigration began in 1849 with the discovery of goldfields in the vicinity. Most of the Americans that found their way to El Monte were from Texas, Arkansas and Missouri.
These lucky migrants made their homes upon the bounty of fruitful, rich land along the San Gabriel River. The farmers made a go of it and the community expanded for years to come. The settlement was briefly named Lexington, but for some reason the name was changed back to the original. The town was an original wild west town, complete with bandit's, knife and gun fights, gambling and saloons. Law enforcement included the vigilante "El Monte Boys" who lynched criminals or victims depending on the day of the week.
Southern Pacific built a railroad depot in town in 1873, while stimulating the growth of local agriculture.
El Monte was incorporated in 1912 and the administration granted single family houses to the people. Locally there were racial and labor conflicts, where tenant Japanese and Latino laborers were systematically abused. Interestingly, the community has come full circle and has evolved into a majority Latino community with a substantial Asian minority population.
Today, El Monte is devoid of basic industry, commodities, agricultural processing or other base industries. Even the retail outfits are all foreign owned. most of the sparse in-town jobs are in the public sector.

Oh my God. The City of El Monte is actively engaged in a hard-ass War on Drugs. A war which the majority of Americans do not want, cannot afford, nor believes in. El Monte officials still lump Peaceful cannabis together with hard drugs, slot machines, prostitution and massage parlors. If cannabis were 100% legal, what kind of money would the city save? Answer, a ton. And how much tax revenue would be created. Answer, a ton. And what would happen to organized crime's income from Marijuana sales. It would evaporate. Still, law enforcement in many parts of the country continues with these War on Drugs shenanigans.
"Due to California’s diverse culture and unique geography, there are many issues that affect the drug situation in California. Drugs such as cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and cannabis are smuggled into the State from Mexico; however, methamphetamine and cannabis are produced and cultivated in large quantities within the State. The Special Investigations Team, in conjunction with the DEA, is working to eradicate these drugs."
The Special Investigations Team is the primary undercover and surveillance unit within the El Monte Police Department. The team consists of one supervisor and five detectives. The primary function of the Special Investigations Team (SIT) is the investigation of narcotic and vice crimes.
