Now that Stan Sniff is being publicly railed for his role in decimating morale, some things are happening.
One example is that in 2017 he personally mixed the idea of adding Load Bearing Vests in to the mix of approved uniforms, mostly because it was not HIS idea. There is no other logical explanation for why something so common sense would be resisted by Sniff.
Load Bearing Vests are proven to reduce wear and tear on the backs of those that wear them.
However, undaunted, Sniff had to make sure he left his mark on the new uniform.
Have a close look (BTW, I feel really sorry for the deputy in the photos) at the wool pants that are intended for use by deputies in the Palm Desert. (Think 115 high temps)
Have a second look at the three layers that this “New” uniform involves.
This is truly the brainchild of a man who has not been on patrol since the 1970’s. Considering that Sniff avoided serving in Vietnam while building a resume, he has no field military service to draw from either. #EPICFAIL
