#ThrowbackThursday #LASD and Kids
The #LASD deputy response spectrum varies from horrific violent crimes, fatal car accidents, domestic violence, resolving neighbor disputes, and welfare checks to just helping a parent explain to his/her child the importance of wearing the seat-belt. These men and women wearing the badge are serving in a capacity that few others can match. These qualities are exemplified in an LASD recruitment pamphlet from #1970:
“We need you if you will become involved in your work. The Deputies’ work shapes and regulates their lives and its influence extends beyond the normal eight hours limit of most ordinary jobs. A law enforcement career requires life commitment and dedication. It offers you a unique chance to become professionally involved with your community…..”
This summer, West Hollywood Sheriff’s Deputies welcomed 11 kids from the West Hollywood Park Tot Time program. The deputies conducted the Station tour and answered some hard-hitting questions such as, “Do you guys have a dog?” and “Where do the bad guys sleep?”………. After our deputies tried hard to answer these hard hitting questions by the group of five year olds, they were requested to take a photo with fun faces. Well, most of the deputies passed the final test and became fast friends!
Small things count. And we do not underestimate them. One badge has unlimited possibilities, become part of the positive energy brought to our communities.
