An exceptionally anticipated report has discovered that many deputies have been selected to join cliques inside the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
The presence of cliques inside the department has been supposed for quite a long time, and Sheriff Alex Villanueva has denied their reality. However, a Rand study commissioned by the Board of Supervisors in 2019 has been finished, and the discoveries are dooming.
The review addressed in excess of 1,600 deputies and chiefs, 16% of whom said they had been approached to join a “secretive subgroup.” More than 33% of those addressed said such cliques ought to be prohibited. Nonetheless, it stays a mystery the number of deputies really have a place with such cliques.
Specialists have presumed that the groups have existed for quite a long time, and are disruptive and have been found to extol a forceful way of policing. The report said that department leadership could debilitate contribution in such cliques by explaining policy language and conveying solid and reliable messages to staff that go against membership in such groups.
In an assertion, Villanueva said he had not yet gotten an opportunity to survey the report.
“I anticipate finding out with regards to their review, strategies utilized, limitations and perceiving how their recommendations can illuminate the monstrous change endeavors currently in progress,” his assertion said.
