Yorba Linda Police Contract Update

Posted by Brenda Higgins on April 23, 2012

Door Hanger distributed on Saturday

This was sent ot me by a Yorba Linda resident who received it this weekend.  I had been advised by several different people, that OC Sheriff’s were canvasing Yorba Linda this weekend, and that they were distributing literature and talking to citizens.  I did not see them or receive anything on my door from any group or agency.   I was given  the specific impression that the Sheriff Union  the would be a noticeable presence with their efforts this weekend.  I have not been able to confirm that this occurred. The only indication I have received of any literature being distributed this weekend is this one.  This is NOT from any Pro-OCSD group or the Sheriff union.  YorbaLindaPolice.com is a pro-Brea PD site.  I have no information about who was distributing these, but clearly it was not the Sheriff Union.

The bids are in for Yorba Linda police services and based on analysis and input from dozens to hundreds:
Please email Yorba Linda City Council and staff to tell them “YES” to support a new police contract and “YES” to making the change to the
Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

Email the Yorba Linda City Council TODAY and convey your support for the Sheriff’s Department: Take a stand for a better Yorba Linda and Orange County. Tell them every Orange County citizen deserves the most comprehensive services at the best price!
Important points:
  • Comprehensive services second to none
  • Highest value for the taxpayer dollar
  • Full service police station in Yorba Linda
  • 120 years of service to the citizens of Orange County
  • Yorba Linda owns all equipment purchased
Go online at HERE to read the proposals before the April 24th City Council Meeting.

The Orange County Sheriff Department’s offer could save taxpayers valuable dollars annually — better price and better service. View the OCSD proposal HERE.

The Yorba Linda City Council is holding a special meeting at 6 p.m. on April 24 to hear presentations from the three agencies. We need every AOCDS supporter to attend the meeting and speak in favor of the Sheriff’s Department proposal. We are anticipating a packed house and we want to make sure our voice is heard.
Unfortunately, certain Yorba Linda City Council members along with a small Anti-Sheriff Department faction have spent the last several months badmouthing the Sheriff’s Department. We’ve had enough. We will not stand idly by and let politicians malign the find work our men and women do for our communities.
When: Tuesday, April 24, 2012
Time: Doors open at 5:15 pm. Get there early. The city of Yorba Linda is anticipating an overflow crowd and we want to make sure the Sheriff’s Department is well represented inside the community center. Please be prepared to be there for at least a few hours. Bring your family and anyone else who can help us support the City Council majority. We will be providing more information as we get closer to the meeting date.
Thank you for your valuable support. See you on the 24th!

--- This is the correspondence apparently from the Sheriff’s union.  This does not mention any effort to canvas the city during the weekend, only encouraging members to be present at the meeting and to contact City Council members.  It was provided to me by a resident, not anyone froom the OCSD or their union.

I have not receieved any information that anyone is soliciting public support for or on behalf of Anaheim PD. 

It has also been communicated to me that the City is loging the communications, emails and letters, received from residents and keeping some sort of count of the number of supporters for each agrency.  You can contact any of the Council Members at the email listed on the Sheriff correspondence above, or the City Manager, Steve Rudometkin at srudometkin@yorba-linda.org with your views on the contract for police services.

To be clear, there is no indication whether the Council will make a determination and award the five year contract to one of these agencies on Tuesday.  There is NO other opportunity for the public to be heard, no other hearing is scheduled.  There is NO vote of the public on this, the Council has full authority to vote and determine this issue on Tuesday evening.
