For many years, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has struggled with hiring sufficient sworn personnel. Last year, the department created a recruitment and retention task force; however, this task force has been ineffective. The department still struggles with hiring issues including: recruitment, department image, background process, polygraphs, medical exams, CA/SO disqualifications and many more. PPOA will be convening a task force of its own to address all these issues in hopes of providing recommendations and solutions to the sheriff and the county.
PPOA is looking for any LASD individuals, sworn or civilian, active or retired, who would like to participate in this task force. Our first meeting will be held October 3rd at 10:00 am at the PPOA office in San Dimas. If you are interested in participating, please email PPOA President Brian Moriguchi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
