  • Questions about Detention services officer in LA county probation department.

    I was wondering if anyone knows do DSO's carry anything on duty? I seen pictures of DSO's for LA county, but I never seen a picture were one is wearing handcuffs, pepper spray, baton or anything else on their belt. I hear that working the Juveniles Halls can be dangerous at times, so what do they use besides hands to protect the kids, staff and their selves?
    Also, anyone know how hard are the academy stress levels and physical training? I'm in the hiring process and want to be ready for the academy. Thanks in advance.

    I'd rather be judged by 12 rather carried by 6.

    It should be noted that any and all post that are made are based on my own thought and opinions. And are not related or implied to represent the department I work for.

        I got band 4. My score is 82.3 I needed at least 82.5 to be band 3. It took about 5 weeks to get results in mail for the written.
