    Retaining San Diego’s Finest Will Cost Dollars & Makes Sense

Retaining San Diego’s Finest Will Cost Dollars & Makes Sense

Upward of 300 officers have left the SDPD in the past 9 years
A recent editorial in America's Finest City's seems to have pointed out the obvious:  San Diego Police Department officers are not only underpaid, they're among the least paid in the state.

Recruiting and training efforts have done little to help.  At best, according to sources, the only thing it has accomplished involves maintaining the rate of spin on the staffing-revolving-door.

Bring new in officers, providing trained, while qualified and experienced employees run for the hills after getting offers for positions with better hours, pay and compensation packages.

Upward of 300 …

Undercover: Covert LAPD OP investigates officers

Sources within the LAPD have confirmed the existence of video footage that confirms that a program designed to help identify corrupt officers.

Members of the Special Operations Division say it's all about weeding out "the bad apples".   Officers who willfully do wrong while wearing the badge leave a stain on the entire department, they said, which is why the SOD works hard to investigate allegations of officer misconduct.

Those who perform the investigations say it definitely takes a toll; they can't share the details of the operations with anyone, especially since that could compromise the safety of department personnel.   They also …

Zombie Arrested Twice In 3 Hours; Others Arrested En-Route To Jail

Night of the drunk-driving living dead
Police say that a women who was decked out in zombie gear was arrested on drunk driving charges twice last weekend; the second arrest came about three hours after she was released on the first.

Officers say they initially pulled the 26 year-old woman over just before 2 a.m. for driving without having headlights on.  She had just come from a "zombie prom" party, and had a few too many adult beverages while she was there.  Police officials say they arrested her, brought her to the station and released her into the custody of a …

Arrested For A Butt-Dial

Police in Roswell, New Mexico say they've arrested two burglary suspects after one of them butt-dialed police.

The inadvertent outbound call was placed just after the 37 year-old man and his 35 year-old female accomplice had burglarized an area home.  At some point, during the getaway, one of their phones dialed 9-1-1.  Not only did dispatch get an earful about the details of the crime, the things they took and their getaway, the entire call was recorded.

Police listened along for 45 minutes and not only heard them talk about how they wish they had taken more, but then bragging about …

Airman Arrested For Giving A Double ‘Wet Willie’

A reasonably intoxicated airman found himself on the wrong side of the law recently after he gave a double wet willie to an on-duty cop. For some, getting a wet-willie is an annoyance, but when damp pointer fingers assault the inside of an officer's ears, well that can be classified as a crime.

The 24 year-old was at home on leave from the air force, according to friends, and he decided to celebrate his temporary freedom with a night out on the town. At the end of the night (and after last call), Riley Swearingen did not head directly to …

SFPD Wins “Earthquake Food” Cook Off

Late last week, San Francisco Police Department officers and other first responded got together for an "earthquake food" cook off.

Many people don't keep a full stocked pantry; the purpose of the contest was to take everyday, humble food items and transform them into a gourmet meal.

The ingredient list was simple and included things like Spam, Ramen noodles and a variety of canned vegetables.  These types of things are often considered to be bottom shelf, if not downright boring.  They're things that have probably been stashed away for quite some time because families tend not to cook with them.

That could …

LAPD Accused Of Using Ghost Cars To Boost Patrol Numbers

Last week's report by the Police Commission's inspector general found that "at least five" LAPD patrol divisions have been flubbing their numbers to make it look as if more officers were out on patrol; officers who were working on other tasks that kept them out of a squad car were logged as being out in the field.

The phenomenon, according to the report, is referred to as "ghost car" deployment.

Police unions have been blasting the LAPD, saying the department has been fudging reports to make it look like they had enough patrols on the street.  In reality, the numbers are …

Stolen Food Pantry Van Found Outside A Grocery Store

A spokesperson for the Hayward Police Department say they stumbled across a rather interesting find this week when a stolen food pantry van was found in a grocery store parking lot.

The South Hayward Parish say the vehicle went missing in the early part of the week; sources say they never expected it would turn up where it did.

ICE Deal To Be Extended In LA County Jails

Earlier this week, the LA County Board of Supervisors voted 3-0 to extend a controversial partnership that allows immigration officials to target non-legal status inmates who have been convicted of serious crimes, and determine whether they can be deported once their sentences are up.

The remaining two supes abstained.

Immigration activists have already started to speak out against the decision, saying it only serves to drive a further wedge between residents and law enforcement officials within the city's immigrant communities.

The program itself is simple-  immigration officials placed within county lockups, such as the Twin Towers Jail, and their job is to …
