COALINGA - On July 3, 2018, the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) conducted a New Employee Orientation (NEO) at Coalinga State Hospital (CSH) for newly hired hospital police officers. The NEO gives new officers an opportunity to ask questions about CSLEA and its affiliate Hospital Police Association of California (HPAC) and gives CSLEA the opportunity to introduce its services and benefits.
State hospital police officers have a full range of duties that include protecting patients, staff, visitors, hospital grounds and the community. Hospital police officers prevent contraband from entering the hospital and conduct routine vehicle stops on campus. CSLEA and HPAC proudly welcome Gabriel Borba, Luis Bravo, Jonathan Tovar and Larry Norbert to their new careers as hospital police officers.
