LOS ANGELES COUNTY — In response to Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich’s motion from two weeks ago, the Sheriff’s December 16th report states that 290 of the 395 former employees of the Office of Public Safety were hired by the Sheriff’s Department. Today’s motion by Supervisor Antonovich requested the Sheriff to report back to the Board in 2 weeks with additional information as follows:

ü Of the 290 former OPS employees who are currently employed by the Sheriff’s Department, how many hold sworn, custody assistant or civilian positions.

ü How many have had performance/conduct issues since joining the Sheriff’s Department.

ü How many of those identified in #2 above should not have been hired based on concerns raised during the background process, including prior disciplinary findings against them.

ü What justification was included in the personnel file of each employee who was hired but did not meet the Sheriff’s prevailing hiring standards.

ü What legal options are available to take against the person responsible even though he is no longer employed by the county.
