Am I reading this correctly? Did they take them away or just for the audit? If my department took my firearm they could have my badge too.

They are taken away for the audit and they are being investigated for where the firearms were stored. These ACOs aren't even allow to wear the firearms on their belt with holsters. They can only bring them out of the truck when they have to eutahnize an animal in the field.

The ACOs still have not had their firearms returned and they risk losing a stipend that they are paid each year for being qualified to carry firearms. It is a shame that their OWN DIRECTOR brought this upon them. Way to support your employees Ms. Barnette.

LA has been through enough "management" changes to make even the most stalwart of employees cringe. The rest of us just stand a watch with our mouths agape and our jaws unhinged.

We have had four directors and three ACO chiefs in the five years I have been an officer...one says okay, the next says take it away...not fun. As of right now, we have no director.

Sounds like you haven't really had a Director or Chief in at least 5 years.

Its sad when your agency and/or the people over it feel the need to justify their position by screwing with the field personnel instead of just letting them do their jobs.

Just as well is when the Chief/HO/director covers up for screwed up field workers. I posted it in the Facebook page a link to the article that came out last month. Finally, after 4 years, I got the health officer to admit that he was violating a state statute regarding health codes at the shelter. I told them four years ago when I was their shelter vet. that they were in violation. This is the same person who hired the ACO with the criminal record. They tormented me and the residents of our town for a long time. Finally, the State is investigating.

I feel bad for those of you who have bad leaders and are good officers; but imagine what the public has to deal with when you have bad officers being covered up by their leaders. This State Investigation is not going to be pretty and I'm probably going to have to testify against them at some point. It is making me relive the torture, but the truth is coming out. I'll post the link if I can find it easily.

This is the article about the health officer who hired the ACO with the criminal record. You can see, my name is mentioned in this article.
