Police Conflict Brewing in Brea
Posted by Former Blogger Chris Emami on June 25, 2012
In a story that looks like it could have come from The Maury Povich Show, a conflict appears to be brewing between the Brea Police Department and the Orange County Sheriffs Department.
H/T to reader Allen Wilson who sent me this flyer that is apparently being passed around at supermarkets in the City of Brea:
Clearly the Orange County Sheriffs Department already has the upper hand with the decision being made by the Yorba Linda City Council to give them the contract. This is actually a wise tactical move to ensure that enough pressure is applied in Brea to stamp out any threat to the contract.
Brea Councilmembers are obviously going to be worried about their own city in an election year and will unlikely push the issue further for fear of losing votes in November. The political season is upon us and decisions are often weighed carefully by consultants on what impact it will have on voters.
With the Brea PD going up against the OCSD though it should make for an interesting November election both on Yorba Linda and Brea.
