The Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday agreed to a $3.2 million settlement for Officer Richard Romney, an 18-year veteran who alleged he had been forced out of the department through retaliation.

In my 30 I sure wish I kept figures on all the free time I gave to Pitchess, Block, Baca..all in the name of duty, pride, whatever. Your department will get every ounce from you that you are willing to give

No one can pay you, and you cannot get paid enough, for the job you do. You can get paid per the law. Agencies that hire law enforcement officers should expect those officers to expect the law to be followed just as they expect the officers to enforce the law. It makes no sense to train modern law enforcement managers to manage like a business and then allow them to treat the officers like volunteers for off the clock time.

Not only law enforcement but many ,many employees work extra and over without compensation. Especially if you are salary employee. Kudos to the officers standing up for what is right. I am sure I speak for more then a few that retaliation for making waves regarding this matter is a great concern.
