The Los Angeles Times spent some time in West Hollywood recently with Detective Greg Taylor of the Sheriff’s Department.
Even though his official job is as a detective, he and other senior law enforcement officers with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department have been spending more time out on patrol and doing administrative tasks as the department tries to cut $128 million in costs from its budget.
The Times notes that before budget cuts, there were just over 6,000 open cases assigned to station detectives, according to department records. By the end of August, that number swelled to 10,400, and the department is linking the number to the budget cuts.
