    replied to Can my mom make a traffic stop?
    All California peace officers have authority anywhere in the state. There are many different police agencies within California and the state Legislature has passed laws defining the specific mission (responsibility) of each. In the case of DMV Investigators such as your mom, their mission is to enforce...

    Most orals seek to measure -

    This started many years ago in California. Gangs who wanted to attack cops at their homes went about it a couple of ways. The easiest was to cultivate dispatchers as girlfriends and have them run name checks on officers they had a beef with through the DMV computer system. That gave them the officers...

    I too, am curious as to how other state's handle this.

    Unless things have changed, if someone runs my registration or drivers license, my state (California) simply responds with my name and my agency name, but no home address information. The inquiring PD then has to contact my agency...

    OK, if you have been dipping into the pain meds, call your wife over to the computer screen, have her read this and ask her to tell you what it says after the fog from the meds wears off.

    It's not that your department has become the enemy here. Instead, it's that their hands are now tied....

  • Retired, you are more than correct.

    I own a Section 8 apartment building in an area of Los Angeles so bad that at one point, HUD deliberately lowered their housing subsidies to encourage residents to move to a better neighborhood. Nonetheless, the monthly rents Section 8 still pays for...

    That is an interesting subject that has become a thorne in the side of management.

    Many years ago, Fish & Game had a Warden who spent an inordinate amount of time making traffic stops and issuing traffic citations for Vehicle Code violations. His superiors repeatedly warned him that...

    California probably has over a million laws, many of which are not enforced, simply because there are so many that not everyone is familiar with them. A lot of agencies assume that because they are "law enforcement", blue lights are OK and don't realize they are in violation. Similarly, there...

    Let me add on to what AGInvestigator said.

    When you say "a month" and talk about paychecks, most people think in terms of four, 40 hour weeks or 160 working hours, which effectively creates 13 months per year based on a four week month. Most employers also pay their staff once...

    I worked with the Insurance guys for many years. Although specialized (fraud) the do active criminal investigations. Health Care does more administrative investigations (violation of state administrative rules related to licensing and program administration).

    These positions are found...

    Print this out https://post.ca.gov/portals/0/post_d...al/Musculo.pdf

    It is California's POST Standards on ortho issues. It addresses scoliosis.

    Take a copy to your ortho doctor and ask him to read it. Ask him to pretend he is the police...

    replied to Prior Service (Army) to LEO
    Leaving jobs without notice and job hopping is indicative of someone who does not handle adversity well and is unable to adapt to constantly changing situations, all of which are constants in law enforcement. This is particularly so in our profession where you often feel the department is more against...

    Look at the California POST waiver process. It may be of help to you.

    Understand that while DOI an DMV are very good agencies, they are also highly specialized and you will find what you are doing to be very limited.

    There is a DOI guy on here periodically. He should be able...

  • Probably one of the biggest problems pertains to the guard's further involvement in an incident after he finds it necessary to call the police.

    Once the police arrive, they become in charge and are responsible for resolving the matter. At this point, the guard needs to step back and not...

  • Applicants & Laterals - Worried about Los Angeles Housing Prices?

    For those of you who are concerned about the rising housing prices in Los Angeles, be concerned no more. A new price standard has been set.

    Allow me to introduce "The One for The One", Los Angeles' most expensive house priced at one half Billion dollars.

    Oh come on. Not even a crooked politician could have scripted that better.

    So, what happened between 18 and 20 that you have specifically omitted from your post?

    Weasel worded stories like that can get you bounced on the background in a heartbeat....

    Bravo16,

    Two quick things -

    First, with respect to OP's post, we don't know exactly why he was bounced and I doubt he really knows either. If it happened after a hiring board interview, it sounds like he failed the oral, but a lot more info is needed. If you don't score high...

    In an agency I used to work for, that would be Lt. Brain Dead, and sadly, I must bear some (but not all) of the responsibility for his existence.

    Way back when I was a sergeant, this guy worked for me as a rookie officer. He had been rejected on probation from another state agency yet...

    replied to Exposure on duty
    Depends on what you are exposed to.

    We have a lot of exposures that in and of themselves do not create immediate injuries, but cumulatively could cause an officer medical problems down the line. As an example, our personnel may work traffic control at a forest fire for several days. In...
