As covered by several media outlets, numerous per diem deputies in San Joaquin County did not report for work today. Per diem deputies are retirees that are routinely used to supplement Sheriff’s Office staffing due to the inability to recruit and retain sufficient numbers of full time deputy sheriffs.
At the moment, San Joaquin Deputy Sheriff’s have gone more than four years without a contract. There is currently a crisis of low staffing levels and high mandatory overtime rates. This has led to burn out and attrition problems.
