Anyone wondering about the sudden change of heart related to John Taviglione should think again. The Jurupa Valley Station Audit is a complete fraud.
It is RUMORED, not proven that John Taviglione sold out for a future Job with KPMG and/or ego-covering on his way out the door. Once this fraudulent audit is completed, Sniff will claim compliance and Taviglione will claim vindication.
Pretty much the entire department is talking about the KPMG audit at Jurupa Valley. Apparently, it is leading to massive overtime (aka “Yellow Days”).
See this rant from a confidential informant:
Over the past three weeks the Jurupa Valley Station has been working on a work schedule dictated by KPMG. A schedule that cannot be adjusted to meet staffing or patrol needs.I overheard a couple lieutenants talking in one of their offices next to the sergeant cubicles, complaining how the Sheriff caved in to this in exchange for John Tavaglione’s endorsement. Guess what it worked because we’re doing it.Failure is eminent and this why, we are already short a bunch of deputies and we are being held over to work 16 hour shifts 2-4 times a week. We are tired deputies and admin doesn’t give a damn!Transferring 8 deputies when 20 or more are needed is an insult because admin claims they want this pilot to be successful.That insult is compounded when Chief Jason Horton comes to my briefing and claim we transferred deputies for this pilot program. See I am here to help you because I love you guys. Jurupa Station is my home. REALLY, we still have like 100 yellow days, mandatory overtime shifts. (Blogger’s Note: at an average cost of $45 an hour, do the math on the cost of 150% of regular wage for overtime)Oh, Chief Jason Horton does a great job tooting his own horn. His favorite theme is “I” and “Look what I have done for you!” As we sit in briefing we all count how many times he says “I did this”. His talks always circle back to him and his greatness.I am just a deputy but if admin truly wanted this to work they would have staffed with enough deputies so I don’t I have to be ordered to come on early or stay late!The KPMG staff are great, they explained the purpose of the pilot to find ways to reduce response times and justify increase staffing.Great, they said the Hemet and Lake Elsinore pilot proved they needed more staffing and CSOs. Well no shit we have been saying that for a few years now for free. (Blogger’s note: CSO = Community Service Officer, a less expensive non-sworn officer)The bottom line is this, Sheriff Sniff got his endorsement and the lieutenants called weeks ago. Oh lieutenants you might want to close your doors when you talk about stuff, we can hear you.KPMG got more money to arrive at the same result as Hemet and Lake Elsinore.Us deputies are now working more and more with no end in sight.We will continue to call in sick on our yellow days because we need the time off to care for our family and ourselves. We know admin doesn’t give a shit because they are all too busy intimidating us because it is an election year.I am glad I don’t live in Riverside County. The quality of life is better in my county. I will likely lateral like several of my fellow deputies did and are going to do because neither Captain Hedge or Chief Jason Horton give a damn.Authored by:A Tired Deputy Amongst Many Tired Deputies.
Note that Chief Deputy Jason Horton is alleged to have gotten away with a DUI and his driving habits have the County of Riverside in a personal injury lawsuit. The car Horton totaled was found recently after being hidden for a year. Captain Hedge, by virtue of information provided by our informants, appears to be useless and feckless.
Also, we are being told that Jason Horton is talking openly about running against Chad Bianco in 2022. A couple things, the 2018 election is not complete, and wouldn’t talking about running against Sheriff Bianco imply you know something the rest of us don’t about Stan Sniff’s status?
Perhaps Stan Sniff needs to replace Horton with a conscript from the local zoo.
Oh, and wait for the spin from the Second Floor once the Jurupa Valley audit is completed.
