Hey all, I recently applied online for DPO I (Residential Treatment/Detention Services)for L.A. County and my application was finally filed with the department last week. I've left a couple of messages to find some answers to my questions that I have about the department, but I have not received a call back which is frustrating.

I know that the department has has alot of issues lately, and apparently is being re-organized. Does anyone have any insight as to what this department is all about? It is extremely difficult to find any information about the agency.

If anyone can tell me if I am hired how long would I need to work in the lock-ups before moving out into the field? How is the morale on the department with all of the changes going on? Anything else that perhaps someone can clue me into would be greatly appreciated.
