Sounds like the areas which use to have lower population are getting alot more population they aren't use to yet. Just like Rancho Cucamonga did about 10-15 years ago but they were able to adjust in a good manner.

Same thing can be said about areas just west of the IE. Azusa and especially Monrovia have had serious gang problems. Monrovia's reputation has fallen greatly over the last 3 or so years.

Criminals which use to live in LA head eastward for cheaper rent and "a new life" still doing what they do best, commiting crimes and getting caught.
I'm talking about the area to the north of the IE if you take the 15 going towards Vegas.
Lived here since I was four and it's been getting bad and good in most areas up here.
Victorville, Apple Valley, Hesperia, Adelanto, those names I gave are just what locals refer to it as.

Or, just another way of making transplants from below the Cajon Pass feel like fools for wanting to move to an area where you need money to do things.

Actually the lunch stipend makes perfect sense. How would you like to be in the middle of lunch and have to leave it sitting there half eaten but fully paid for to respond to a call? "Yea yea yea." I'll respond to that 10 car pile up just as soon as I finish my BLT!"

Ten days after I left law enforcement, one of my partners on the multi-agency narcotics task force I was a part of was killed on duty.

My uncle. He survived a number of missions over Europe as a tailgunner, survived being shot down, and survived a few years in Stalagluft 17-B in Austria, years that included torture... only to be shot in the head by a dirtbag while investigating tire thieves at a remote house in Southwestern San Bernardino County.

God bless him, his wife and his children.

Wow, that is such a good salary! Wish all the EMTs and Firefighter make that money...oh wait, then they will be making almost as much as a family care doctor.

You gotta admit, the amount of money made compared to how much post-HS education they usually have is astounding.

But at the same time, a doctor could more easily give their superiors the "finger" when it comes to overtime than a member of the CHP.
Same amount of money could be made in both paths, but I heard it's mandatory OT no matter how tired you are when a member of the CHP or any other LE agency.

Another reason I'll continue wanting to drive a truck more than stepping into that realm of occupation-land, drive the DOT-allowable max of 10-11hrs, take off 10-11hrs.

Most cops LOVE the OT. However, they have two different types of vacation time. I don't know the exact term but its basically "locked" and "unlocked". My buddy is a cop and planned a nice trip out of towns weeks before using the "unlocked" time and was about to leave when he got a call to come in due to a hostage holdup. There were already like 25 cops there but they told him he had to come since it was considered an emergency. So, they had to delay the flight and he did a bunch of nothing. The amount of money he earned was spent on the fee to rebook the flight.

He was mad as hell about the entire situation and switched city departments not too much time after.
