  • When will your Agency be forced to hire.

    It would seem to me that even with the economy being terrible that PD's would still need to hire to compensate for attrition. My question is how long can all these hiring freezes last. I am suppose to RELAD in 2012 and it isnt looking so great right now. Anyone know of any NorCal agengcies that are going to be looking to hire in the next year or so?

    A lot agencies are deleting the slots as soon as people retire or move on. So there arent any "vacancies" per se. In many contract negotiations, one of the things they ask for is that the department delete the vacant slots. I dont know that exact details, but when there are open vacancies, the department still has to have money allocated to a certain extent. I think its that they have to fund the benefits but not the salary or the salary and not the benefits. Something like that. So having vacancies still costs the department money. Thats why they just axe them all together. That what my agency did. I dont know of any agencies Central on up that are hiring.

          We are several hundred bodies short at this point, with no academy classes on the horizon.

          During the last melt down, we were almost 2K bodies down before we started hiring.

          Agencies can go a VERY long time without hiring if they have to.

            Thats pretty wild when your agency can be DOWN 2000 deputies!! Mine was down about 60 and we were hurtin'! But that takes me back to my earlier post. As part of negotiations, we actually deleted those slots. So whoala.....we arent down 60 bodies anymore. Its that easy

            The big draw back though is when times improve (Im praying) the Sheriff has to go back and actually ask for more slots to be allocated to the Sheriff. its like we never had them in the first place. See, on paper, we are at full staffing.

              Most law-enforcement agencies added quite a few personnel up through 2006. They could learn to make do with lower staffing. Some agencies could replace some sworn personnel with civilians, who are less costly.

                There's always a reason to hire more cops just never enough money.

                If your in NorCal, COCO Sheriff, Richmond PD, Alameda Sheriff are all hiring right now for newbee trainees.

                If you have a post grad cert then Concord PD, Walnut Creek PD and the ones I listed for trainee positions are all hiring for laterals/Academy Grads.

                Go to each departments website and look there under Human Resources. You'll find the job announcement.

                  At our latest bureau management meeting the budget was discussed. There was big emphasis on overtime rules, and they discussed staffing. It seems that a bunch of specialized units are being looked at for downsizing or disbandment. All of my bureau is contract, so we can't downsize those since someone else is footing the bill. However, if those agencies cut back our staffing, we have enough vacancies right now that we can absorb those bodies with no loss of jobs. As a matter of fact, we just picked up another contract from a different station. Very cool, but as LA DEP said, we can go for a LONG time without hiring....and it looks at this point like we just might.
