    My agency does not take laterals. The process for taking laterals will vary from department to department for those agencies that do.

  • Unless you are covered by a union contract that says otherwise, you are an "at will" employee who serves at the pleasure of your employer. You can be hired, fired, promoted or demoted for any reason or no reason. The fact that they were willing to disrupt their staffing needs and give you...

    I think we have one or two in Ventura County and one LASD that lives north near Canyon Country.

    I'm sure we'll hear from them when they find time.

    replied to Major fires in Southern Calif.
    Just as a heads up for those of you who do wind up working the fire lines for traffic control, crowd control, evacuations, etc,.

    It was the practice of my station to routinely write an Employers First Report of Injury (Worker's Comp Injury) Report on every officer assigned to a fire or...

  • Once an incident is over, you will always have time to carefully ponder how things might have been done better. And even if you do that, six people will disagree with your findings and tell you their six different ways were better.

    But in real life, you may only have seconds, if that,...

    replied to What is Involuntary Manslaughter?
    192.

    Manslaughter is the unlawful killing of a human being without malice. It is of three kinds:

    (a) Voluntary—upon a sudden quarrel or heat of passion.

    (b) Involuntary—in the commission of an unlawful act, not amounting to a felony; or in the commission of...

    Here is a link to the listings for current State of California public safety positions https://jobs.ca.gov/CalHRPublic/Sear...orcode=33-0000 Vacancies change from time to time, so you will have to check back often.

    replied to Unarmed Sworn Positions
    Oh ye of little knowledge. Yes, there are sworn positions in California that are unarmed, but they are not "traditional" police positions as one thinks of uniformed officers in black and whites, chasing down burglary in progress calls and handing purse snatchers.

    replied to Drugs Test question - serious
    By no means am I attempting to discourage you. Were this to have happened to me I would be livid. However, you also need to think about all the hoops you need to jump through in order to prevail in a civil suit.

    First, you are the one alleging wrongdoing by the other party, so it is not...

    replied to Need Advice of what to do
    Take a look at the exam announcement for the position you are seeking. It will tell you what the minimum requirements are and you can do a self assessment to determine if you meet them. There is rarely an experience requirement. When I was first hired as a cop, my only experience was as TV repairman...

    replied to Should I appeal
    There are generally two grounds upon which you can successfully base an appeal:

    1. They made an error in their investigation and you do not meet the criteria for disqualification, or

    2. The criteria for disqualification has no reasonable relationship to the position being sought....

    Now it's hurry up and wait.

    They're not going to slap a badge on your chest and toss you out onto the streets. First you'll need to go through a police academy. When is the next one scheduled? Next month? Six weeks? Two months?

    No one is going to hire you to sit around...

  • It will depend on the agency you apply with. Right now, having taken any type of a hallucinogen, no many how many years prior, is a permanent DQ with many agencies because of the fear of flashbacks. However. some departments (a very small number) are starting to accept applicants who have not done...

  • There's an old story about a child who ventured too close to the lion's cage at the zoo. Seeing the opportunity for a quick snack, a lion thrust his paw out, wrapped it around the child's head and tried to pull him into the cage in between the bars. The crowd screamed but was frozen in panic until a...

  • There was a time when all our new officers were trained as EMTs when we put them through the academy. After several years we did an assessment which looked at a lot of things such as:

    The cost of putting on the class itself for every officer

    The cost of personnel hours necessary...

  • Rob,

    The thin blue line exists and we usually stand behind our own, but only if they make a good case for doing so.

    Go back and look at your two posts. You make vague allegations with no explanations of what happened, how it harmed you or any background of events to put things...
