Mono County Sheriff Daily Activity Log for July 11- July 20

The irony of law enforcement is that often it has little to do with cops and robbers, and a lot more to do with just simply helping citizens that need assistance. In rural counties especially, it’s important to have public servants capable of responding to emergencies at all times, whether that emergency be a terrible vehicle accident or checking up on a family member whose family or friends are worried about his or her well-being.

    Most of what you are asking about is public information: https://transparentcalifornia.com/salaries/mono-county/

    Maybe you should pay attention to county business and supervisors meetings where budgets are approved every year all the time and not when its convenient for you agenda.

    Hello, Mr. De Bill!
    What would you have local jurisdictions do as an alternative, turn-over local law enforcement to some larger agency, such as a state police department or a reconstituted CHP? Those officers also have salaries, perqs and benefits, just like county deputies do. Or instead, if you create smaller local agencies, such as small municipal police departments, you create more command leadership positions, and you would still need to pay competitive compensation to hire officers. There is no easy answer.

    One thing which many law enforcement agencies are realizing that they need to consider is making a better use of retiree talent and skills in their communities, by expansion of their citizen volunteer programs. Trained volunteers, who undergo a state and federal background investigation, can do many of the data entry, detective support and administrative tasks within the stations which need to be done, freeing up sworn officers for patrol duty. Many agencies are also instituting senior citizen community patrol volunteer programs, as a force multiplier, providing more eyes and ears on residential streets. The paid officer hours saved can be allocated to other patrol functions in the city.

    Reserve officers can also be utilized more by some of our smaller rural communities.

    Most of that stuff you have listed and asking,quite frankly,is none of your business or anyone else’s.
    From what I’ve seen,hear about,and witnessed myself,the Mono County Law Enforcement,both Sheriffs and CHP do a pretty good job keeping things AND especially the highways safe,especially in the Lee Vining-Bridgeport area.
    Down here in Inyo County,speeders through our towns on a daily,actually hourly basis.
    Drive 60 MPH through Bridgeport and see what happens most of the time.

    Having chosen to trumpet its benefits, perhaps KSRW can now also inform the taxpayers of the costs of local law enforcement.

    That way we can make a better-informed cost-benefit analysis of its value.

    I.e., without naming anyone, what is the base pay of peace officers in Mono County?

    How much overtime do they average?

    What is the cost and value of their medical, dental, and vision insurance?

    And what sort of retirement benefits do local peace officers enjoy?

    And what about their vacation, sick leave, and holiday-pay benefits?

    And what about fuel, equipment, and all the other costs associated with call responses?

    In other words, what is the overall cost on average for Mono County law enforcement to respond to, deal with, and follow-up administratively with the responses described in the activity log?

    Thank you.
