          That's another thread.

          This is from the Sherman Block era.

            Sheriff Block is greatly missed.

                          I came in at the end of the 80s and it was. The equipment and training were not as good, but there were other things that were better. No video cameras in the hands of every yay-hoo who wanted his 15 minutes was the biggest.

                            The applicants that really knew what they were getting into from the start, did have fun on the job. Unfortunately, some of those that were attracted to the job by videos like this were pretty shocked when the hit the streets! Recruiting was pretty tough at times and when "newbies" found out they had to do things like search dirty, drunk and infected transients, restrain themselves with gang members that spit in their faces, work "forced" OT, and deal with the lack of sleep on "Early Mornings" shifts, a lot of that glamor wore off. A lot of people said it wasn't worth it and went off to make their fortunes during the, "Dot Com Boom".

                              If you notice, Assistant Sheriff Tanaka is riding the ATV on the beach.
