NAPA – In the first week of January 2017, Member Service Representatives Chris Scrimiger, Jim Laughlin, and Shelley Bishop met with newly hired police officers, firefighters and communications operators at Napa, Coalinga and Metro State Hospitals.
“By meeting with our newest members, we can introduce ourselves on a very informal level and answer any questions they may have,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona. “We want all of our members to know we are here for them and we are active partners, and an active support system, in their jobs and careers.”
State Hospitals operate like small cities and have a similar public safety mission. This includes the safety and protection of mentally ill and/or criminally insane patients, the hospital staff who provide treatment, hospital visitors and the surrounding community.
CSLEA would like to welcome Hospital Police Officers Anton Burton, Daniel Salazar, Cameron Filieins and Jesus Solorzano, Communications Operator Aaron Lee, and Firefighter Rolando Rosales to their new careers in public safety with the State of California, and to CSLEA.
Solorzano is new to state hospitals, but not to state service or CSLEA. Solorzano transferred from the state museum police to become a hospital police officer at Metro.
