Baldwin Park, Calif., judge slows efforts to dissolve police force, switch to sheriff
from San Gabriel Tribune
The city's police officers won a temporary restraining order that forces city officials to slow down their efforts to dissolve the police department and switch service to the sheriff's department. Judge Luis Lavin said Baldwin Park, Calif., city officials may need to meet with the police union before they force police officers start taking evaluations with the sheriff's department. "It is undisputed that [the city] have a duty to meet and confer over matters," Lavin wrote. The judge asked both parties to come back before him on March 26 to consider whether he will offer an injunction to force the city to sit down and talk with the police union.
