THE DEPARTMENT'S DISSERVICE TO DEPUTIES = A DISSERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY THEY SERVE

As a common theme of scrutinizing every move deputies make evolves, the Sheriff's Department is also evolving in their policies, procedures and expectations. These changes do not come easy for most and it makes every single one of your jobs more difficult than the job already was.

TWO COMMON QUESTIONS DEPUTIES FREQUENTLY FACE IN AN INCREASINGLY INTOLERANT DISCIPLINARY SYSTEM

ALADS members are facing an increasingly intolerant discipline system and two questions are commonly asked in reference to interviews.

TRUE MEANING OF THE CPA

In January, 2017, the department mailed a newsletter entitled "Inside the LASD" to members of the department. This "newsletter" was intended to dispel rumors that have circulated throughout the department. In one of the articles entitled "Constitutional Policing Advisors Who Really Decides Discipline?" it makes the CPA's sound all warm and fuzzy and that they are a great tool for the department and its members. We would beg to differ with that assessment.

DISCIPLINE DISQUALIFICATIONS FOR COVETED POSITIONS

If you are in a position where you are going to receive discipline, it is very important for you to be aware of how much discipline will prohibit you from being promoted to a Coveted Position. Your decision to accept discipline rather than grieve may have a very real impact on your candidacy for a Coveted Position.

IT's ONLY A MATTER OF TIME

This article is a reprint. It originally appeared in PORAC's Magazine in 2013. I feel that in light of the numerous violent police protests that occurred in the past year, the relevance of its subject matter is significant.

MAKING CHANGES AT ALADS

Over the past two and a half months that I have been president, I have noticed that our board meetings have gotten longer and our unit representative meetings have gotten shorter. While I am not sure if that is the best way to measure the progress we have made, it is a good place to start to look at where ALADS is today.

President, Ronald Hernandez
