  • Jobs In California

    Lists of public agencies currently hiring in California. www.calopps.org

    I came across this website while reading my PORAC magazine.
    This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

    "tell'em" about the badge and gun thing AFTER they're hired!

    Sad and funny- went EOW @ 0630 hrs and heard a local radio station ,KPWR , running an advertisement for my dept-Yeeesh ! "let your career take off with L.A.Airports PD". ! then on the FWy another hip hop city of L.A. commercial for the "elite few" who "protect and serve- the LAPD". at home and sitting on the couch ,watching the TNT channel when local commercials chime in for ( inless than 30 mins) 3 seperate commercials for L.A. county Sheriffs ( "making a difference" ), CA. highway Patrol, and locally, the Torrance,CA PD- really hip,action packed ! Has it gotten that deseperate?what are recruiters going to do next- kidnap local College kids ? "shanghai" military personnel walking off the bases?round up folks at the local immigration office or seaports?I refuse to believe that there are that many "jacked up" people in CA. who cannot meet the requirements or just plain don't want the job!..........

        Recruits don't have the military background or life experiences anymore, and the youth don't have much respect for authority; it seems to be a generational thing. Streets have certainly gotten more violent and stupid personnel complaints are up. The job doesn't have the glory it once had.

          I guess the CHP is still hurting for good applicants. I noticed they are starting to add "Now Hiring" bumper stickers to the units around here.

          Now seems to be a great time to be an LE applicant in CA.

            Cost of living, and the boom in Nevada and Arizona play a part as well. Agencies from both states actively recruit down here.

              Just because they are hurting doesnt mean its easy to get in. I applied for LBPD during the last process, passed everything(poly, background, etc). I didnt get selected because I have a couple tickets and no college or military. They were putting banners and billboards up but they only took 84 people out of the 1800 that applied. My background officer said I have to apply again and take a couple classes. I think they are advertising like this so they can be more picky in selection. Of course if I had applied to LAPD or LAUSD I would have prob got in because of the huge number of applicants......

                    And all that for a lot of time in the jails. Last I heard was 6-8 years before getting to hit patrol.

                            With OCSD I just was asked about starting the process. But i really dont want to spend 5 years or more as a jail guard. Besides i cant afford to do more traveling.

                              A bit off topic, but ..........

                              Not sure exactly how old 1oldsarge is, but I'm a pretty "old sarge" too (cop for 30 years, Sgt for 21), and I gotta tell ya, as far as South Central L.A. goes, it is NOT a more violent place now than it was, say about 20 - 25 years ago. Places like Lennox, Carson, Firestone, Lynwood, Compton (all in or near what is loosely referred to as South Central Los Angeles) ........ while still plenty "busy" enough to keep the adrenaline up, still enough crime for the adventurous cops who tend to migrate to those places to ply their trade ...... but these formerly extremely busy, very high crime (and violent crime) areas do seem to be, overall, noticeably quieter now in terms of violent crime than they were a quarter century ago.

                              But, yes, stupid personnel complaints ARE way up. Not sure about "glory", never personally looked at it that way myself ......... but it sure has been a lot of fun and excitement.
