Transcript NOTES FROM THE CHAIR On invitation from Olga Soliz and Sylvia Vasquez, I was able to take part in a discussion with Sheriff Jack Heard regarding the hiring and promotions of women and minorities. In discussing the answers to Olga's questions about promotions and duty assignments we came across some very interesting facts: • The physical requirements for Deputies are not so restrictive in the Sheriff's Department as to categorically exclude women. At least one woman who did not meet the exclusive HPD standards is currently a deputy. • There is a waiting list for all job openings so that there is no active recruiting program. Even so, about 30% of the applicants are women. The greatest shortage is the number of Chicanas employed and applying. • Sheriff Heard feels that the department has come a long way in the past couple of years (from almost zero) yet is willing to admit that there is a lot of progress still to be made. It seems that we need to spread the word that women have a better chance to have a career in law enforcement with the Sheriff's Department than with HPD. I am convinced that increased numbers of women working well as deputies will go a long way toward convincing HPD that their policies are antiquated. We should work with LULAC, WEAL and GATA (a new Chicana feminist organization) thru Olga and Sylvia to let potential applicants know the score. One of the largest problems in recruiting is that neither the Sheriff nor the Women's Advocate have channels of access directly to those women who are vitally interested. We will have to develop information channels so that we can balance the ratio of women in law enforcement. There are women deputies who are available to speak to interested groups. If you know of such a group, call the Sheriff's office for details. Now to change the subject to campaigns! I hope that at the September 15th meeting we will be able to decide how many "Caucus-hours" we will spend for our candidates. I am proposing that we arrange for enmasse efforts for specific candidates on appointed days as a show of support and to get our due recognition for our energy. Be thinking how much energy we should be prepared to devote to this project and how it should be allocated among our endorsees. For instance Janis Pool will need a massive blockwalking effort on the 25th and 26th of September - we should be out in force! We should each be keeping track of all the many hours spent working in campaigns - from the primary forward. Documented Caucus-hours can be powerfully convincing when the votes need to be counted. Pam Hazen has made it her job to keep track of all the hours we document for her. If I don't see you at the beer stand, I'll see you around the block.
