RECOMMENDATIONS BY MERRICK BOBB AND OFFICE OF INDEPENDENT REVIEW
REGARDING THE JAIL SYSTEM

COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES - SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT
The purpose of this document is to provide a status to the recommendations by date,
title, prepared by Special Counsel Merrick J. Bobb, the Office of Independent Review,
and the Board of Supervisors.

I.

Install surveillance cameras at the Men's Central Jail, the Inmate Reception
Center and the Twin Towers within 30 days and develop a plan to purchase
and install surveillance cameras at the remaining jail facilities.
To date, the Department has installed a total of 705 cameras at the Men 's
Central Jail (MCJ), 19 at the Inmate Reception Center (lRC) and is projected to
have a total of 705 cameras installed and operational at MCJ by the end of May
2012.
The attached document (Camera Project Status Report) depicts the
Department's current status on camera installation and the projected total of
cameras.
The installation crew has moved to Twin Towers to access cabling routes and
begin installing conduit in preparation for the installation of new cameras.
Data Storage
As reported in the January 10, 2012, letter, new servers for storage of video data
was installed on December 15, 2011 . These servers will provide permanent
storage for up to 25 months at MCJ and TTCF.

The Internal Services Division (ISO), with the assistance of the Chief Information
Officer (CIO) has completed a successful bidding process for the network
upgrade equipment and a Purchase Order was released January 24, 2012. We
have received some of the equipment and anticipate that all of the equipment will
arrive by mid March.
Policy
The Department has created new Custody Directive establishing procedures for
the recovery of fixed infrastructure video surveillance.

Note: Any noteworthy incident is immediately copied to a permanent file for any
investigative purpose.

REGARDING THE JAIL SYSTEM

II.

Eliminate the use of heavy flashlights as batons to subdue inmates.
The Department and the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs (ALADS)
came to a mutual agreement regarding the use of flashlights in the jails. The
Sheriff has directed and approved a new policy to limit the size and weight of the
flashlight. The policy specifies that the flashlights shall not weigh more than 16
ounces, and shall not be more than 13 inches in length. Flashlights longer than 9
inches shall be of plastic or nylon composite material only. It is anticipated that
the new policy will be implemented and effective May 1, 2012.

III.

Eliminate the use of "steel-toe" shoes.
Recommendation implemented.
On October 24, 2011, the Department made revisions to the existing "Footwear"
policy (3-03/225.00).
Research of existing personnel showed that Department personnel have never
worn "steel toe" boots in any capacity; however, the Department formally revised
the policy to strictly prohibit any use of "steel toe" boots.

IV.

Revise the Policy on Head Strikes with Impact Weapons to forbid all head
strikes, including, but not limited to, head strikes against fixed objects
such as floors, walls or jail bars, unless the standard for lethal force has
been met.
Recommendation implemented.
On October 10,2011, the Sheriff initiated a new force prevention policy which
provides directions for personnel relating to respect based treatment of
incarcerated individuals. This policy was discussed with the ALADS working
group and was redistributed to all personnel in the jails.
On October 26, 2011, the Department made additions to the existing
"Unreasonable Force" policy to strictly prohibit head strikes against a hard object.
The Custody Force Response Team (CFRT) responds to all force incidents
where any head strike occurs, whether the strike is initiated by personnel, or by
contact with floors, walls or other hard objects.

V.

Rotate Jail Deputies between floors at Men's Central Jail and to other jail
facilities at no less than six-month intervals.
Recommendation implemented.
Page 2 of 7

RECOMMENDATIONS BY MERRICK BOBB AND OFFICE OF INDEPENDENT REVIEW
REGARDING THE JAIL SYSTEM

In January 2011, Men 's Central Jail began rotating their staff no less than every
six months. After consulting with ALADS, a directive was disseminated to all
custody facilities mandating rotation of line personnel every six months.
VI.

Enforce the Anti-Retaliation Policy to prevent Sheriff's deputies from
retaliating against inmates speaking with legal representatives or inmate
advocacy groups or for expressing dissatisfaction with jail conditions.

Recommendation implemented August 2011.
In August 2011, the Department made revisions to the existing "Treatment of
Inmates" (5-12/005.00) policy to prevent deputies from retaliating against
inmates. All staff assigned to Custody and Correctional Divisions were provided
a formal briefing of the revisions to the policy. The briefing began August 4,
2011 , and continued for a two-week period. In addition, the Department
redistributed the policy on October 25, 2011, for another two-week recurring
briefing to ensure each staff member is fully aware of the expectations of the
policy and has mandated quarterly recurring briefings be conducted.
The CMTF is working on a new policy to mandate that all complaints of retaliation
be thoroughly investigated by Internal Affairs and reviewed by the Commanders
in the CMTF. Pending the policy implementation, all retaliation cases are being
reviewed by the CMTF and assigned to a lieutenant for a thorough in vestigation.
VII.

Interviews of inmates who make claims of excessive force should not be
conducted by, or in the presence of, the deputies or their supervising
sergeant involved in the alleged use offorce.

Recommendation implemented.
On October, 26, 2011, the Department made revisions to the existing "Use of
Force Reporting and Review Procedures" policy ensuring privacy during force
interviews.
VIII.

Interviews of inmates alleging use of force and any witnesses must occur
as soon as feasibly possible, but no later than 48 hours of the incident.

Recommendation implemented.
On October, 26, 2011, the Oepartment made revisions to the existing "Use of
Force Reporting and Review Procedures" policy directing supervisors to
immediately conduct interviews.

RECOMMENDATIONS BY MERRICK BOBB AND OFFICE OF INDEPENDENT REVIEW
REGARD ING THE JAil SYSTEM

IX.

Develop a prioritization process for Use of Force Investigations to ensure
that the most severe incidents are completed within 30 days and that all
others are completed within 60 to 90 days.
Recommendation implemented.
As previously noted. the Department developed a CFRT Policy that established
new critena for force review in the jails. The Ilew categories of force and the
CFRT ensure that significant force cases. not handled by Internal Affairs, are
externally evaluated and completed within 30 days. At that time, they are
reviewed by the newly formed Custody Force Review Committee (CFRC), which
consists of three Commanders. The first CFRC was conducted on Febwary 16,
2012, and included oversight by the Office of Independent Review. The next
CFRC is scheduled for Ma/'eil 13, 2GJ, 2GJ12 March 20, 2012.
The Depmtment continues to process the most severe incidents as Internal
Affairs Investigations, which are generally completed within 90 days unless
unexpected circumstances arise

X.

Develop a plan for more intense supervision that requires jail sergeants to
directly supervise jail deputies, including walking the row of jail cells and
floors and responding as soon as possible to any notification of interaction
where force is being used on an inmate.
Recommendation Implemented et MCJ on November 6, 2011.
On October 27. 2011, the Department delivered a letter to the Chief Executive
Officer requesting additional supcrvisory staff in the jails. However, the
Department felt it was imperative to immediately increase staffing at MCJ.
Effective November 6, 2011. 19 sergeants were added to MCJ currenl staffing to
ensure the appropriate supervision was ill place. These items were removed
from other critical areas within the Department and deployed to cover both Day
and PM shifts. Thero iJre now 2 selgeants assigned to 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000,
and 9000 floors, and a full-time sergeant dedicated to 170011750. All sergeants
wero briefed on the expectations to be visible and actively monitoring activity on
the floor at all timfJs, In addition, the Department is worl<.ing on "duty statements"
for all Custody personnel to ensure they have a full understanding of the
expectations of their assignment.

XI.

Immediately mandate that all custody medical personnel report all
suspicious injuries of inmates to the Internal Affairs Unit or the Captain of
the jail facility where the inmate is housed.
Recommendation implemented
Page 4 of 7

RECOMMENDATIONS BY MERRICK BOBB AND OFFICE OF INDEPENDENT REVIEW
REGARDING THE JAIL SYSTEM

On October 26, 2011, the Department's Medical Services Bureau revised the
"Injury/Illness Report Inmate" policy (M206.09) to include a provision requiring
medical staff to advise the facility watch commander in the event an inmate .
reports/alleges that their injuries are the result of force used by a Department
employee.
XII.

Report back on the role of the new Jail Commanders and how they will be
used to reduce jail violence.

Since the implementation of efforts by the CMTF to reduce jail violence and
associated use of force incidents, total significant uses of force continue to
decline. Two documents are attached relating to force incidents in the jails:
Force Used by Month - Significant force vs. Less significant force
Force Year to date - 2007 to 2012
The Jail Commanders continue to work with each custody unit to accomplish the
goals set forth by the Sheriff
The Jail Commanders oversee the operations of the CMTF, which is now
comprised of 5 commanders, 8 lieutenants, 8 sergeants, and 4 support staff
The lieutenants, sergeants, and support staff are all items that were removed
from critical units within the Department and deployed to this task force .
The CMTF Mission is to assess and transform the culture of the custody facilities
in order to provide a safe, secure learning environment for our Department
personnel and the inmates placed in the Department's care. The CMTF's
purpose is to empower Department personnel to provide a level of
professionalism and serve the needs of inmates consistent with the Department's
"Core Values."
The CMTF's responsibilities and goals include promoting community trust,
reducing jail violence by changing the deputy culture of the custody environment,
encouraging respect based communications with inmates, reviewing and
implementing new training for staff assigned to the jails, preparing and revising
all directives/policies necessary to implement Special Counsel Merrick
Bobb/Office of Independent Review recommendations, analyzing force incidents
and developing and implementing a custodial career path.
The 8 lieutenants work directly in accomplishing the goals set forth by the Sheriff
and Commanders. The 8 sergeants are comprised as a jail force "roll-out" team
(CFRT) who oversee, mentor and review all significant force cases that meet a
particular criterion, yet do not rise to the level of an Internal Affairs investigation.

REGARDING THE JAIL SYSTEM

XIII.

Sheriff to work with the Chief Executive Office to immediately study the
feasibility of purchasing Officer Worn Video cameras for all Custody
personnel to use, to identify potential funding for this purpose, and
develop appropriate policies and procedures for the use of these cameras.
Policies should include a requirement that custody personnel record all
interactions with inmates, including Title 15 checks, any movement
throughout the jail facilities and any use of force. Each failure to record or
immediately report any use of force against inmates must be appropriately
disciplined.

The Deparlment has received 30 cameras, (Personal Video Recording Devices)
for the pilot program. The CMTF drafted a guideline, and conducted training for
the volunteer deputies that will be involved in the program. The pilot program
began on February 26, 2012. The cameras will be worn by deputies interacting
with inmates with a history of mentally illness, violence, and hostile behavior
toward jail staff.
The Deparlment is conducting a six month "proof of Concept" in order to
determine whether there is a practical use for PVRD in Custody Operations
Divisions.
XIV.

Consider the feasibility of targeted and random undercover sting
operations performed in custody facilities to ensure deputies are working
within policy.

The Sheriff discussed this motion during the November 1, 2011, closed session
meeting.
XV.

Consider a "roll-out team" to investigate when there is a use of force in a
custody facility.

Recommendation implemented.
Beginning November 2011 , the Deparlment created the CFRT, comprised of 8
sergeants and a lieutenant, who are tasked with responding to custody facility
force incidents.
The CMTF created a set of criteria that mandate facility watch commanders to
contact the CFRT and request a response . The CFRT Sergeant will oversee and
assist in the force documentation for the facility. In the course of reviewing the
incident, the CFRT Sergeant shall give specific direction to the handling
supervisor. If any policy violations are discovered, the CFRT will immediately
assume responsibility of the force investigation and initiate an internal
investigation.

Page 6 of 7

RECOMMENDATIONS BY MERRICK BOBB AND OFFICE OF INDEPENDENT REVIEW
REGARDING THE JAIL SYSTEM

All incidents requiring a CFRT response will be reviewed by a newly formed
CFRC comprised of 3 Commanders assigned to Custody and Correctional
Services Divisions. The CFRC has the authority to order additional investigation,
make recommendations, or request an Intemal Affairs investigation if there
appears to be a possible violation of Department policy. Since the
implementation of the CFRT, they have responded to 27 incidents.
XVI.

Report back in 30 days on the hiring standards for deputy sheriffs and how
they changed during the last hiring push.

Recommendation completed - A full report on the hiring standards was provided
in the November 1, 2011 , letter.
XVII.

Consider a two-track career path for deputies, patrol deputies and custody
deputies.

On December 16, 2011, members of the CMTF concluded an extensive twomonth study which analyzed different methods of implementing a two-track
career path within the LASD. Study results and CMTF recommendations have
been presented to the Chief Executive Office (CEO), ALADS, PPOA, and the
Public Safety Cluster Agenda Review meeting on February 8, 2012. The
Department will be working with the CEO towards implementation of this
proposal.
XVIII.

Review existing policy of assigning new deputies to custody functions,
specifically, the length of time spent in custody and the hiring trend as its
primary determining factor, and revise the policy to reduce the length of
time deputies serve in custody.

On October 28, 2011 , the Department authorized custody personnel to initiate
extensions if they desire to remain in their current assignment. To date, 280
deputies have taken advantage of this offer, which will ultimately cause a
reduction of time that deputies will serve in a custody assignment.
As noted in the above item, recommendations for a two-track career path were

presented to the CEO, ALADS, PPOA, and the Public Safety CARs meeting on
February 8, 2012, which will reduce the length of time deputies serve in custody.
