Law Enforcement

There is a huge public engagement on considering and implementing a budget de-funding of police departments. Specifically, my top best practice on this issue is to employ Lowest Responsive and Responsible Bidder practices, which is a practice that has worked in supply chain management

Lowest Responsive and Responsible Bidder: The bidder who fully complied with all of the bid requirements and whose past performance, reputation, and financial capability is deemed acceptable, and who has offered the most advantageous pricing or cost benefit, based on the criteria stipulated in the bid documents.

In the case of a Charter City that contracts with the Los Angeles County Sheriff for its law enforcement does not practice biding this law enforcement service to other competitive bidders. Two specific items wold be remedied with a formal bid process, where money and costs would better defined and lower costs would result. Quality o service would be a benefit since the contract would stick to well defined outcomes. The most improved process would be that if there were police brutality or services conducted not outlined in the contract, there would e a remedy in court for a refund and an clear method for courts to review where the contract was violated.

The overriding theme is that police are law enforcement and not legislative service providers. If a citizen is in violation of the law then consequences in order. Profiling drivers is not part of the contract, unless written into the contract and is lawful for a specific jurisdiction.
