  • I was greatly relieved when they released the suspect's name. For many years they thought one of our guys was good for it. Apparently he fit whatever profile they put together for the suspect and he coincidentally transferred in and out of the different areas where the killings took place during the...

    Well, let's see. First, you would have the state you work in wanting to tax your wages because you earned them there, while the state you live in would also want to tax them because you earned them while being a resident. While you would be doubly taxed (hey, it 's still tax hungry California now matter...

    replied to Defamation Lawsuit for False Complaint.
    California has a law mandating that people who makes complaints against the police be advised that they can be prosecuted and sued if they intentionally make a false complaint. At the same time, California courts routinely throw out such prosecutions and lawsuits as they have a "chilling effect"...

    Look at how the counties are broken up in the newly designated states. LA, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties (relatively rich VLF and gas tax counties) come out ahead, only having to support three semi-rural counties. Orange, San Bernardino and San Diego have to support roadways in nine huge and...

    That won't be a problem. Self driving or not, vehicles will still need to be licensed. However, other issues will arise.

    1. Right now, DMV and CHP have VLF's locked up as their funding source as a matter of law. Other agencies are jealously eyeing this money and trying to figure a way of...

    I could care less except for two things if it passes:

    1. Who becomes responsible for my CalPERS pension?

    2. Who renews my state issued HR 218 card every year?

    Making contact with the public or on a stop, yes, but private person to person conversations between officers without their consent is an unreasonable expectation and and in my state, an unreasonable invasion of their constitutional right to privacy. (California Constitution, Article 1, Section 1 ...

    And of course, there's the homeless person who manages to sneak into the gym to shower, (good for him) only to walk out, clean hair, freshly scrubbed, but wearing the same dirty, smelly, bug infested clothes he had on when he came in....

    Not enough information - too many variables.

    What are the department rules regarding when cameras must be recording? What does the MOU say about when non-public contact, private officer to officer conversations will be released? What does that state's public records law say about the release...

  • Maybe, maybe not.

    In its severe stage, eczema can effect your ability to handle weapons, apply restraints, etc. Because it is on your leg, that should not be an issue. However, eczema can also put you at greater risk of substantial harm from exposure to toxic substances and bodily fluids....

    On the flip side, there may be no solution.

    I retired from a state agency. One of the stations I worked out of had a similar problem that festered for years until Headquarters send down an industrial psychologist to look into the problem and recommend a solution. His report said the command...

  • Based on the few details you have made available, the scenario you describe suggests a lack of judgment on your part and as your BI, I would have questions. Consider -

    In most instances, your friend would have to have done something pretty serious to you to warrant making a police report...

    replied to File a Complaint Against a Police Officer
    My agency welcomes complaints. If one of our officers has done something wrong, we want the opportunity to correct it. If the officer hasn't done something wrong, we want an opportunity to correct the misunderstanding.

    The problem lies with who you ask. Officers are not responsible for...

    There's something else to consider - the practicality of carrying a snub nose.

    I bought my first (and only) snub nose when I first became a cop in 1969. I always carried it as my off duty gun and when working plain clothes. When I left the job, it became my retirement gun. I felt very comfortable...

    Not to throw cold water here, but sometimes you can "what if" things to death.

    When was the last time you heard of anyone within 100 miles of you getting into an off duty, officer involved, where they needed that many rounds? Or, where they got into an off duty, officer involved,...

    replied to strange off-duty assignments
    Your basic justification for rejecting the request is that this is not a law enforcement task and the function lies outside the mission of your agency.

    FWIW, years back we had to provide about 40 officers for dignitary protection to a legislative VIP event. In planning the event, legislative...

    A definite no.

    When a private business or individual contracts for police services, it’s traditionally because they are engaged in a temporary activity that may create an increased risk to public safety. For example, a company staging a major event may need to pay for officers for traffic...

    FWIW, my agency tried that a little over 20 years ago. Here’s what happened.

    Fitness standards were established and varied depending upon age and sex. If you passed, you got to keep your job. You also got an extra $130 per month in your paycheck. If you failed, you were given a chance...

    That’s because its not a simple issue thanks to civil service and the Americans With Disabilities Act. Here’s how it works.

    Once a civil service employee passes probation they achieve permanent status and enjoy what’s called a “Liberty Interest” in their job. Legally speaking,...
