    Out of curiosity.. How much say do the laterals get when being assigned to a station? I hear Rancho is a pretty cush station to be at so would it be hard to get assigned there as a new lateral?

      Don't laterals there start out in the jail like boots?

        All new hires start in the jail, wait for patrol is about 2 yrs depending on station choices. Don't believe everything you may hear prior to being hired such as getting out to the streets in 6 mos. or top step pay. Just take it with a grain of salt, not written in stone. Otherwise SBSD is a great department. Hard on pay/benefiets but a good place overall.

            All this talk of SBSO brings back old memories. I went to the SBSO Academy back when Tidwell was Sheriff. Ron Cochran and Scott Mesa were my classmates. Seems like it was a long time ago.

                I've been a dep with SBSD for 4 years now. When I was in the jails, laterals were going out within 6-9 months. But, things have slowed down a lot. For a few years 25-30 deps would be pushed out to patrol every three months when a class graduated. Now, it's a trickle so I think going to patrol would take a about a year. The tradeoff is that all the laterals I know only had to do a few weeks or maybe a month max of FTO depending on skill and experience. I know of no one in the last four years who had to do two years in the jail unless it was by choice or they messed up.

                I knew laterals who came in at top pay or a step below because they had more years on than our top step would be. Most of the laterals I know came in at higher pay steps then they would have been if they started their careers with SBSD. Overall, I think SBSD is a good department. We get treated well.

                      As 162 said, two years is a long time in the jails unless you are holding out for one city. I did 13 months in the jail with no prior law enforcement. But second day out of the academy i had my name on the transfer list for patrol.

                      Be careful when you ask a jailer how long he / she has been in the jail because (god bless them) they may want to stay in there. I hated it. SBSD covers such a large area a lateral can get out pretty quick (in normal times) as well as an academy grad.
