Rioting cost sheriff 15,216 overtime hours

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant Using the starting salary of a deputy – $3,715 a month – the potential fiscal liability is a minimum of $326,079. Factoring in supervisory staff, the numbers are most likely much higher. The allocated hours cover a period that started Feb. 4, when 2,000 inmates at the North County Correctional Facility rioted, resulting in the death of inmate Wayne Tiznor. The fighting continued sporadically, spreading to the Men’s Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles on Feb. 13, when inmate Sean Anthony Thompson died of injuries suffered in a racial confrontation. “The overtime was utilized providing additional personnel at some of the facilities, along with additional response teams,” McCorkle said. “On the first day, personnel from patrol stations responded, along with court services division, to staff additional emergency response teams.” McCorkle said that the last time this much overtime was dedicated to custody division, it was during a three-day melee at Pitchess Detention Center in April 2000, when Latinos and African-Americans clashed, injuring hundreds of inmates. “We always track unusual-occurrence overtime,” he said. “Last time, it was the same scenario, at least for the custody division. This is all specifically for managing the disturbances in the jails. It doesn’t include any overtime used for regular vacation vacancies.” CASTAIC – The recent spate of fighting in the county jail system – at Castaic’s Pitchess Detention Center, in particular – cost the county 15,216 hours of overtime, but the cost for that work is not yet known, a Sheriff’s Department official said. The extra manpower was needed to back up jail staff and to guard inmates who were hospitalized with injuries suffered in combat over some three weeks, battles that pitted Latinos against blacks. Sheriff’s deputies, typically rookies, man county jails. “It’s difficult to attach a dollar figure to this because personnel have the option of taking overtime paid or saved,” said sheriff’s Sgt. Mike McCorkle of the sheriff’s custody division. “If they take it saved, they accrue 12 hours of credit (for every eight hours of overtime) that they can use with vacation or for other time off.” McCorkle also said that it would be easy to calculate a monetary figure if all personnel worked similar shifts, but some auxiliary staff, such as those from court services, worked 10- and 12-hour shifts. Deputies are routinely required to stay over their standard eight-hour shifts during emergency situations to ensure coverage. Additional deputies were put on overtime to guard hospitalized inmates; immediately after the Feb. 4 incident, 33 inmates were being treated at 15 different hospitals from Lancaster to Santa Monica. In emergency situations, deputies working after their scheduled shift is over is standard operating procedure. But there is a limit, McCorkle said. “The longest anyone can work, accruing overtime, is 19 consecutive hours,” he said. “That’s department policy.” Sheriff Lee Baca has blamed the unrest on a high inmate-to-guard ratio due to budget constraints. The county’s jail system is the largest in the country, with 21,000 inmates in six facilities. Currently, there are only 5,000 deputies working in custody assignments, resulting in frequent forced overtime. The Sheriff’s Department is funded for 9,400 deputies, but to date has only 8,200 sworn personnel working out of the various stations. The department is aggressively recruiting candidates and county supervisors have directed staff to come up with additional financial incentives and deployment strategies to make working for the county more attractive.

Critics blast youth rally

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO – A Christian youth rally that drew more than 25,000 people to AT&T Park this weekend met resistance from city leaders and some residents, who questioned the rally’s agenda in this largely liberal, gay-friendly metropolis. The two-day rally, called “Battle Cry for a Generation,” was intended to guide young people away from a popular culture that organizers say glamorizes drugs, violence and sex. Ron Luce, whose Texas-based Teen Mania organization put on the event, said it hopefully would inspire a “reverse rebellion” against corrupting influences such as MTV and the online meeting hub, MySpace.com. The rally, which also will visit Detroit and Philadelphia, featured religious rockers, speakers and the debut of what Luce called a Christian alternative to MySpace.com – at advance ticket prices of $55 and walk-up prices of $199. “This is more than a spiritual war,” said Luce, 44, a Concord native and a President George W. Bush appointee to a federal anti-drug-abuse commission. “It’s a culture war.” Barricades separated Luce’s crowd with counterprotesters about 6 feet away who said the Friday and Saturday event amounted to a “fascist mega-pep rally.” Assemblyman Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, told counterprotesters that while such fundamentalists may be small in number, “they’re loud, they’re obnoxious, they’re disgusting and they should get out of San Francisco.” The resistance didn’t discourage Luce, who said he plans to return to San Francisco next year to chart the progress of his youth movement. Scott Thompson, a youth pastor who attended the Friday gathering, denied any political agenda. “I’m not here to hate anybody,” he said. “This isn’t about Bush or gays or anything other than being here to worship together.”,160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Both sides clashed Friday outside City Hall, where Luce led a pre-Battle Cry gathering of teenagers waving triangular red flags flown from long, medieval-looking poles that went with the event’s military metaphors. “Are you ready to go to battle for your generation?” he asked, to which the crowd roared “yes!” A Battle Cry invitation had made plain the symbolism of gathering at “the very City Hall steps where several months ago, gay marriages were celebrated for all the world to see.” last_img read more

A JOURNEY INTO THE HEART OF IRISH TRADITIONAL MUSIC WITH CAOIMHÍN Ó RAGHALLAIGH

first_imgGifted musician Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh is to travel the length and breadth of Irish traditional music at the Regional Cultural Centre this Saturday night.Dublin-born Ó Raghallaigh is to explore the beauty and humour of the music in ‘In My Mind – A Solo Fiddle & Film Show’ aided and abetted by his 10-string fiddle, a film projector and a host of virtual guests. He describes the fiddle as “a stunning 10-string instrument made by Norwegian luthier Salve Håkedal. The top five bowed gut strings plus the five sympathetic strings below give the fiddle a wonderful resonant sound.“It is somewhere between a hardanger fiddle and a viola d’amore. While Salve calls this instrument a 5+5, and Dan Trueman (for whom the first one was made) calls his a 5×5, I’ve decided mine likes being called a Hardanger d’Amore.”Ó Raghallaigh is both an established solo artist and a member of several acclaimed ensembles, including The Gloaming and This is How We Fly.He says his distinctive sound can be traced back to an early interest in uileann pipes and a love for the traditional music of Kerry and Clare. Ó Raghallaigh and Dán Trueman’s new album, Laghdú, recently went straight in at No.1 in the iTunes Ireland Charts for Traditional Folk.The virtual guests, whom he has filmed, include a musician, dancer, singer, poet and landscape, each of whom make the other half of a duet with a live Caoimhín.This is his journey showing the depth and beauty of traditional Irish music.In My Mind – A Solo Fiddle & Film Show at the Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny, Saturday, 8pm.A JOURNEY INTO THE HEART OF IRISH TRADITIONAL MUSIC WITH CAOIMHÍN Ó RAGHALLAIGH was last modified: October 7th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Caoimhín Ó RaghallaighletterkennyRegional Cultural Centreviolinlast_img read more

LYIT AMONG TOP REVENUE-GENERATING COLLEGES IN IRELAND AND BRITAIN

first_imgThe LYITLetterkenny Institute of Technology is amongst the highest revenue-generating colleges for its locally economy across Ireland and Britain.The LYIT is ranked among the top 20 educational institutes when it comes to money being generated by its students in the local economy, a study a found.Third-level colleges generate €4 for every €1 they spend, and seven jobs for each person they employ, the study found. Brian Lucey, professor in finance at Trinity College Dublin’s business school and one of three authors of the article, published in Studies in Higher Education, said it was one of the first attempts to analyse the economic impact of the sector.While the data is based on the 2010-2011 academic year, spending was €2.6bn, of which €1.5bn came from government sources.But higher education contributed €10.6bn to the economy, 70% of it generated by the seven universities, and the remainder by the 14 institutes of technology.The colleges employed 22,000 staff, but indirectly supported 150,000 jobs. “While there has been a lot of talk about the financial sustainability of higher education, and the search for new funding models in universities and other higher education institutions in Ireland, little empirical evidence exists to guide policy-making,” said Prof Lucey.“The findings will contribute to the current national debate about the funding challenges facing the sector in a post-bailout environment.”A major aspect of that debate is whether or not students should pay more fees to increase funding for higher education, given that government has cut spending and that student numbers have risen.While speculation has focused on a student-loan scheme to finance increased private funding, this is just one of the possibilities that will face the incoming government after the spring election.The study, co-written with Qiantao Zhang and Charles Larkin, finds that Irish figures are comparable to similar studies of higher education institutions in the UK. Along with the three Dublin universities, University of Limerick and Letterkenny Institute of Technology also feature in the top 20 of all UK and Irish institutions for levels of economic impact.The researchers also suggest the findings could inform debate about mergers and co-location of Irish colleges, and how their income diversity will result in desirable, or undesirable, policy outcomes.“Less-developed regions could concentrate more on developing a dense system of high-tech and innovative firms to enhance the interactions between universities and firms,” they wrote.LYIT AMONG TOP REVENUE-GENERATING COLLEGES IN IRELAND AND BRITAIN was last modified: December 28th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegaleducationLYITlast_img read more
