Olmsted on Set

Commander Robert Olmsted (Ret.) is embarrassed by his former Department. In fact, he was so troubled by the shame of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department that he quit the LASD in 2010, and is now running as a candidate for Sheriff. Olmsted notes that the $100 million in lawsuit settlement “pay-outs” in the last three years against the Department doesn’t even cover attorney fees. He explains the pay-outs are for use of force, inappropriate force, retaliation, sexual harassment, and a variety of reasons. Olmsted believes the mass hiring orchestrated by Under Sheriff Paul Tanaka in 2004 was made possible by lowering the hiring qualifications. And that is what led to the major discipline problems that are besieging the Sheriff’s Department.
