    I spend about 4 months year in the Sierras and law enforcement up there is much different than So. Cal. All of the depts. are small, Bishop only has 20 or less officers. They do have a new female chief, A retired LAPD Captain.

    Mono County has a huge patrol area and very few deps on duty. For example no one is on duty for graveyard shift, they are called from home to respond to a call for service. During the other shifts there are only 3 deps on duty for the entire county. Backup could be a hour or more away. I talked to a Deputy a while back and he told of holding felony suspects at gunpoint for 45 minutes before help arrived.

    Mammoth Lakes is a PR dept. there is alot of money in the town and the majority of the community is ulta liberal in their views. During the ski season you have to deal with the tens of thousands of skiers that come to party.

    I believe Inyo County Sheriff is hiring now, but then again a very small dept. with a huge area to patrol and very few Deps on patrol at any one time.

    If I had to Pick I would take Mono County just because the area is a little nicer than Inyo County. But don't forget the winters can be brutal.

        I don't know how it is now, but several years back the new guys at Inyo SO either went into the jail or got sent to the Shoshone resident post just south of Death Valley. They stayed there until a new hire could take their place.

        In addition, that had trouble hiring enough females to staff the jail 24 hours a day, so female prisoners were transported all the way to Bakersfield to be held in the Kern County jail. Don't know if that has been remedied as of yet.
        Going too far is half the pleasure of not getting anywhere

          In the past few months, Inyo SO has been hiring custody jailers and have openings for Deps. They are still having to transport females to Bakersfield which basically takes a car out of service for the entire shift.

              Sorry don't have any knowledge of these areas and really like the upper owens valley and the mammoth area. Been going there since I was 6 months old and feel at home there. Thanks though...I appreciate all the info.

                Tuolumne County SO is hiring. The pay isn't all that great, but there are beautiful places to live: Sonora, Twain Harte, Strawberry, etc.
                Those who are successful at what they do don't give a rip about what others think about them.

                  Mammoth would be a wonderful place to work. It's the only place in CA I truly miss.

                  An old friend worked Mono Co. SD, he said the P/R part of the job sucked. They also, usually, did not arrest bouncers for DUI - giving them rides home. When I asked why, he said, "in a bar-fight, they're are only back up."
                  "You're never fully dressed without a smile."

                  Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

                  Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.

                    guess that makes sense....there are places down here they don't arrest bouncers, but then again they don't arrest anyone

                    Keith are youe retired our are you working the front range somewhere???

                    My department is getting more and more PR based..guess it is the sign of the times..

                      I'm retired from the "big city, west coast" you would recognize the name/initials in an instant, after 30 years. We fled the rapidly emerging third-world nation of Kullyfornya to Colorado, last year. I still have a ten y/o and four y/o twins so I need med benefits that don't cost me $1,200 a month. I'm now a rookie cop in an area, much like the drive from Bishop to Mammoth (sorta like Tom's Place)

                          You mention Tom's Place, my second home. Just got back a few days ago after spending a week camping in Rock Creek and fly fishing the Upper Owens. That was my 9th trip this year.

                            In my best Borat voice, "Very nice!" Some guys have all the luck!

                            My 24 y/o son just got back home, today, from the Mammoth Lakes area.
