We were very disappointed to see the Los Angeles Times editorial comments on the County of Los Angeles v. Mendez United States Supreme Court case.
Vice President, Robert Sass
Exploiting deputies who make mistakes and disciplining them seem to be the primary focus of those who control our department.
President, Ronald Hernandez
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.
Defense Representative, Julie Petrelli
ALADS members are facing an increasingly intolerant discipline system and two questions are commonly asked in reference to interviews.
Executive Director, Derek Hsieh
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.
