47 Deputies Stripped of Guns After Failing Psych Tests​

The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office in Northern California has stripped 47 deputies — 10% of the force — of their guns and arrest powers because they failed psychological exams.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Alameda County Sheriff's Office in Northern California has stripped 47 deputies — 10% of the force — of their guns and arrest powers because they failed psychological exams, it was reported Monday.
It was “horrible'' to have to relieve the deputies of their duties, sheriff's spokesman Lt. Ray Kelly told KTVU-TV.
The station obtained a copy of a letter notifying the deputies of their change of status last Friday. The deputies will still receive their pay and benefits.
The move came after the Sheriff's Office conducted an internal audit of deputies' psychological examinations from January 2016 to the present.
The letter from Sheriff Gregory Ahern notified a deputy — whose name was blacked out in the copy — that the deputy had been graded “D. Not Suited" in a psychological evaluation and under state law couldn't serve as a peace officer.

I bet you see this as a bad thing, eh? Purging the police of the bullies not suited to interact with the public can only be a good thing, IMO.

Still paying them..and they can still be useful..just not as armed police.

As for disability? Not thinking so..they can do all sorts of things..just not enforce the law.

From the link:

The letter said the Sheriff's Office had previously been operating under incorrect advice received several years ago from the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training, which said it could hire candidates who received such a rating.
Ahern said the deputy can be hired if a second examination declares him or her “suitable" and the office intends to schedule an appointment for such an exam.
“Our intention is to resolve this issue as quickly as possible," Ahern wrote. “We also intend to have you return to full duty status once you obtain a ‘Suitable' finding."
Kelly said he hoped that the retests would occur in the next two months. The tests will be conducted by a psychologist who doesn't work for the sheriff, he said.
Kelly said the audit followed the arrest earlier this month of former Deputy Devin Williams Jr., 24. He is charged with shooting and killed a couple in their Dublin, Calif. home on Sept. 7.
His mother, Anitra Williams, told KTVU-TV that her son had been in a romantic relationship with Maria Tran and he believed she was unmarried.
The station said four sources said Williams had failed his psychological exam, although Kelly previously said Williams, who was hired in September 2021, had passed all psychological tests.
The Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, an Oakland nonprofit that deals with race and criminal justice issues, accused the Sheriff's Office of previously turning a “blind eye" to the problem of unsuited deputies.
“This further highlights the egregious levels of dysfunction and corruption that have plagued the sheriff’s office for years," the center's organizing director Jose Bernal, said in a statement.
Kelly said the department has been under “enormous pressure" to hire more deputies and it was hard to find people for the tough job.

“I know that people are going to assume that all these deputies are killers,” Kelly said. “But that’s not true. This test tries to find out if you are psychologically suitable for the job, to handle all the horrible things we see. At the age of 22, sometimes you’re not. I know this isn’t good. But it’s not as bad as it sounds.”

They probably asked questions like 'Would you let Pee Wee Herman fuck your poodle?" or 'do you think homo pedophiles should be allowed to cruise schoolyards?' and if they said 'No', they were failed, cuz Bigots n rayciss..

These days it's the ones who pass these Woke 'tests' who should be fired.

I'd imagine many deputies suffer different sorts of mental trauma, especially in commiefornia, that alters their psyche to the point where they shouldn't be in public with a gun and authority. It's one thing to carry the tool for self defense and another to carry one with the force of law behind you. It can fuck with your mind.

I am getting the impression that they were not stripped of their jobs completely. Does this mean that they will eventually be tested again to see if any improvement can happen?

God bless you always!!!
