We’ve written at length about the maladies of the Stan Sniff Riverside Sheriff’s Department. Because of this blog, people within the department have an outlet for the daily absurdity of the department. We’ve been able to lay out a clear case relating to the decimated morale of the department, even as the local media and the Sheriff himself attempt to downplay it.
Please click here for an expose of the absurd maintenance contracts for all County Equipment. Where is Stan Sniff on this? Why hasn’t he complained to the board of supervisors about the outrageous prices and the ghastly delays? Who knows how much that Bus is going to cost to repair.
The current county maintenance contracts charge around $150 for an oil change, and at that, there is a long delay in service. Car Washes are around $10 a piece, and the deputies are forbidden from using a drive thru or a coin op car wash. Worse, the County Maintenance people claim the soap nozzles are broken and often times the lazy maintenance people do a car wash that consists of spraying the car with water… soap is optional. Cha Ching $10.
The Sheriff? Crickets.
Recently, Riverside County saw record-shattering heat. The day it hit 115-117 in Jarupa Valley Station, yet they were using fans because the AC Unit is malfunctioning. I am sure County Maintenance will charge an outrageous amount for the repair when they get around to it.
Where’s the Sheriff? How long has the AC Unit been broken? Why hasn’t he complained to the board of supervisors about the outrageous prices and the ghastly delays?
OSHA just showed up to Palm Desert Station. That will not end well for the RSO. (Riverside Sheriff’s Office)
Palm Desert Station is supposed to be supplying deputies with Water Bottles, like the 500ml things you get 45 at a time at Sam’s Club for $5 (when California’s BS is included). Instead, Captain Jason Huskey decided to create Hydration Stations and give deputies 1/2 gallon water jugs to fill. #EPICFAIL, this is an OSHA violation, why are deputies being forced to drive back to the station to refill their jugs when they could just grab a dozen or so water bottles and take them out in to the field? (It’s the law)
It should not surprise you to learn that Ben Clark Training Center got slapped with a nice FAT OSHA fine for violation of 3395(F)(1) – drumroll please… Heat Illness Prevention. The fine was in 2015.
Perhaps Jason Huskey can represent the County Pro Bono in the OSHA hearing he helped set the RSO up for… for the same part of the code that the RSO has already been fined for. Hopefully, OSHA does not hear about Jurupa Valley.
Oh, and where’s the Sheriff on all this? He promoted Jason Huskey.
Bouns: We’ve been told that the employees of Palm Desert Station are quite open about their disdain for the working conditions. Morale is so low there that the employees no longer fear intimidation. The response? Sgt. Robert Garcia (of Post DUI accident selfie fame) tells the employees complaining to apply to Ontario or Riverside PD. Great Job Captain Huskey at managing morale. Robert Garcia is a name that frequently comes up as a Lt. Bostrom level jerk, he also has been involved in a few “incidents” with female employees as well. We are surprised “Sgt. Selfie” has not been promoted by the Sheriff. (Perhaps Sgt. Selfie is too gigantic of a loser even for Sniff…)
Meantime the internal affars team appears to be setting up to terminate or discipline Correctional Deputy Tami Smoak. The are not going after the sgts that have been harassing her – PSB got letters from the harassers that were incendiary fantasies of the aggressors trying to save themselves with further attacks against the victim. As so often is the case with how PSB is run, they pick a scapegoat so they can wrap up the case sooner and make it all go away.
(PSB = Internal Affairs Department)
Wonder why crime is spiraling, felons are getting sprung and deputies are fleeing the RSO (Riverside Sheriff’s Office) in droves?
In the meantime, Stan Sniff is “Happy as a Clam” with the current budget. He must be taking leave of his senses. Fire Stan Sniff, he has done nothing to improve this situation and has promoted people making it worse.
P.S. That’s Sgt Selfie below…
