The shooting at Salvador Castro Middle School yesterday is a reminder of the importance of providing a safe environment on school campuses. School resource deputies play an important part in keeping students safe.

We are deeply concerned about the possible release of confidential information to the media by the Sheriffs Department. Many employees have reported that Los Angeles Times reporters have reached out to them at their residence or called them on their unlisted personal cell phones asking questions about their placement on the Sheriffs Department's Brady list.

When I was a young deputy just starting my career in the mid-’80s, I was not a member of any union. I really didn’t understand the value of unions, so I didn’t join. I made several mistakes and my lack of understanding about unions nearly cost me my job. One night, I was involved in a fight with an inmate. Not unusual back then, but this inmate was different. His mother was an U.S. attorney. Read More
The emergency room doctor who treated the 16-month old boy confirmed that CPR administered by Deputies Cruz and Nava ultimately saved the toddler’s life.
They performed CPR for somewhere between three and four minutes until an ambulance arrived. The ER doctor who saw the boy confirmed he would have died without it.
When we say law enforcement is a family, we mean it. Palmdale Station is now home to father/daughter crime-fighting combo SGT Ronald Klumpp and LET Ashley Klumpp. We’re proud to see both PPOA members taking care of business under the same roof!
