Welcome to my Blog with a focus on keeping secure.

Hi there Los Angeles and the World Wide Web.  I finally gave in and decided to start a blog.  I have been on twitter with the name of @Secure_LA commenting and re-tweeting posts related to law enforcement including Sheriff and Police issues and various other public safety and homeland security issues.

A little bit of a bio:

I work for a law enforcement agency in a civilian status and have both Army and Air Force military reserve experience. I travel using public transit and I’m in the downtown Los Angeles area often.  I love to read and research and have subscribed to multiple periodicals related to public safety over the years. So I believe I have a great base of public safety knowledge in law enforcement, security, emergency medical and fire service fields.

I have seen some of the best people in the military and in public safety along with some of the worst.  In worst, I don’t mean criminals although the news is always relating stories of criminals in the public safety sector. I mean the ones who get a great paycheck for showing up to do nothing.  I have seen people actually work harder at avoiding doing any work than if they just did the job they were paid to do.

The way I see it:  10% in public safety really try hard and go the extra mile to excel in their job and would do the same job for half the pay if needed. 20% in public safety start out great and get beat down by bad management to the point they just do enough to get by. 40% start out in public safety being middle of the road types and just end up in a rut.  20% have the knowledge skills and ability but are just not into the work except for the paycheck and finally the 10% that are mediocre from the get go and are only in public safety due to too many along the way figured they are someone else s problem.

Biggest problem with bureaucracies is the solution to all problems is more bureaucracy.
