List of department defects: 1. Having a Chief that resists city imposition of secondary educational requirements from recognizable accredited learning institutions as prerequisite for promotion. Fish rots from the head down. 2. Having a Chief that hires and promotes based almost entirely on loyalty and willingness to do as instructed, regardless of integrity, as opposed to promotion based on credentials, accomplishments, and meritocracy. Example, officer Charles W. Starnes, Riverside County Sheriffs Department reject and closet alcoholic. Perhaps this is why his wife left him? How ironic it is that the benevolent “Chief” promoted this reject to head the department’s staffing efforts. 3. When a department’s chosen hires fail to graduate the academy, rather than direct scrutiny upon those department members who selected the underachievers, they enact an aggressive policy of recruiting other department graduates, or even in the past, guaranteeing badges to recruits willing to pay their own way through the academy, the latter being the proverbial equivalent of selling badges. Once these “lateral” transfer officers leave their previous department, the deception is complete. Knowing such transfers will likely be barred from returning to their previous department, GGPD has little motivation to honor the pledge that yielded the transfer. On a positive note, GGPD has a reputation for hiring those deemed unfit by other departments so disciplinary problem officers are encouraged to apply, just don’t try and “lateral transfer” from GGPD. The traits recognized and honored by this department are valued by no other respectable department or agency.
