Los Angeles County security officers – the first responders who protect county hospitals, medical facilities, courthouses and social service buildings – on Tuesday called for quality jobs and stronger security at the County Board of Supervisors Meeting.
During public comment, county security officers testified about the importance prioritizing safety and security and on the public cost of security jobs with low pay, no sick pay and no healthcare.
“Without health insurance, county security officers like me depend on public programs and emergency rooms for healthcare, said Eliazar Witron, a county security officer. “The Los Angeles Times has reported routine serious overcrowding in the emergency room where I work. Supervisors say that is a major concern – but the county contributes to its own problem when it allows more than 1,000 security officers and our families to work without healthcare.”
“Public safety and security should be a top priority in Los Angeles County,” said county security officer Gloria Salgado, responding to a July 8th La Opinion article in which a Supervisor’s office said the county chooses security companies “at the lowest price.” “The county might save a little but taxpayers, security officers and public pay the true cost. When county security officers do not have health insurance, we use emergency rooms and public programs for healthcare – that costs taxpayers $2.6 million every year.”
“Supervisors have tried to stay out of this fight but you can no longer ignore us,” said Witron. “Security is the county’s responsibility and county security officers who have low pay and no healthcare are a county problem. If you truly stand for safety, security and good jobs, then you need to stand with the county security officers who keep you safe.”
“We urge you to get serious about security and provide the resources we need to best serve the county,” said Salgado.
Outside the board of supervisors meeting, county security officers demonstrated, waving banners, chanting and engaging in street theatre.

Boise ID July 16 2010 Bay Area rapper Too Short was arrested and charged with three counts of misdemeanor battery Thursday morning (July 15) stemming from an incident in an Idaho nightclub.
According to police records, the 44-year-old MC (real name: Todd Shaw) was released after posting bail and is scheduled to return to court August 4.
Another man was also charged in the incident, which the Idaho Statesman is reporting as a fight with security workers who attempted to stop the rapper and his associate from inviting underage women to the backstage area.
Short performed at the Boise Knitting Factory on Wednesday night as part of a lineup that also included E-40 and Mack 10.
After his performance, the rapper and his associate, who was charged with two counts of battery, reportedly were involved in a tussle with club security, eyewitnesses told police, after the gentlemen warned Too Short about his behavior. Police were called to the scene and took the two men into custody. If Too Short is found guilty of all charges, he could face up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
As of press time, Too Short nor a representative for the rapper could be reached for comment.
Daniel Rodriguez Garza, 46, was booked into Sutter County Jail, where he was being held Thursday without bail. His occupation was listed on a booking sheet as regional manager of DWB Protective Services.
Garza was arrested at 7:10 p.m. at El Margarita Road and Spirit Way on a probable cause warrant for lewd and lascivious conduct with the child, two counts of sexual penetration and possession of child pornography, said police Cmdr. Jeremy Garcia.
The alleged offenses have no connection to River Valley High School, which is near the arrest site, he said.
Police began in investigation June 30, shortly after the alleged incident occurred at Garza’s residence in the 1600 block of Hunter Way, said Garcia.
The victim was visiting the residence and is not related to Garza, he said.
DWB Protective Services is at 584 Franklin Ave. in Yuba City. A woman who answered the listed number there Thursday afternoon did not identify herself and declined comment on the arrest.
Garza was interviewed by USA Today in December 2007 after the Appeal-Democrat reported he used a Taser in the parking lot of the Yuba City Walmart store to subdue an alleged carjacker.
July 16 2010 Armed with 46 arrest warrants, more than 200 police and drug enforcement officers rounded up hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of narcotics in a citywide drug bust Thursday.
Law enforcement officers also issued 21 search warrants, seized seven guns and confiscated more than $200,000 worth of narcotics, which included cocaine, PCP, marijuana and Oxycotin, said officials from the D.C. police and the federal Drug Enforcement Administration at a news conference at the Kennedy Recreation Center in Northwest Washington.
The operation targeted Trinidad and the area around Rosedale Street in Northeast and Seventh and O streets in Northwest, said D.C. Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier.
At least two of the arrests made Thursday are connected to recent shootings, Lanier said, adding that “significant progress” has been made in many of the investigations related to the bust.
“The arrests and the people we targeted are involved in drug distribution and much of the violence that surrounds that drug distribution,” she said.
The bust, which involved about 240 officers, began about 5 a.m. Thursday and was expected to continue throughout the day.
