Los Angeles Sheriff:
Twice the Protection
at Half the Price?

EQUAL RESPONSE TIME vs. PVEPD)
FOR VOTER CONSIDERATION:
Sheriff Protection Twice that of PVEPD: Since identical number of patrol cars shall be positioned throughout tiny geography of PVE, LASD Response Time Equal to that of PVEPD. Moreover, the LASD has offered the following as well:
- 12% more patrol service hours from highly trained and experienced deputies;
- Lomita Station Location Advantages (on Narbonne) are as follows:
- Unlike PVEPD officers frequently pulling themselves off street patrol in order to fraternize at closeby PVEPD HQ, the distance to the LASD Lomita station makes that misconduct impractical and infeasible;
- PVE residences closer to the LASD Lomita Station/RPV (Lunada Bay), which are neglected to the benefit of Malaga Cove streets near PVEPD HQ, now will have a fair chance at law enforcement patrolling their neighborhood and faster response times; and
- PVE residences closer to the LASD Lomita Station/RPV (Lunada Bay) under the Sheriff will have the benefit of faster access to the entire RPV Sheriff patrol force in the event of an emergency requiring rapid expansion of law enforcement coverage/protection.
- Experience stunting hard crime throughout LA County, as compared to low-crime and thus low-experience for PVEPD officers who graduated from Rio Hondo (vs. Sheriff Academy);
- Expansion capability: squad cars in force can multiply 3-5 fold within one hour to accommodate a surge in crime;
- Expertise through entire Peninsula, including access to LASD squad car database of criminal interface and contact (PVEPD squad cars have no access to this);
- Dan Beringer as station chief with sterling leadership record (vs. Kepley sued for negligence);
- Priority LASD Helicopter access; and
- Sheriff services that do not even exist within the PVEPD: SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics), gang suppression specialists, etc.
PVE community programs (PVE-Cares started by PVEPD hero fmr. Chief Dan Dreiling) transferred to low cost and headcount PVE organization.
Sheriff COST Less than HALF that of PVEPD: For all of the above, $3.4 million annual, contained cost, including liability, vs. PVEPD costing taxpayers $7.4 million, with never-ending, escalating long term pension costs. Over 12 years, voting down the Parcel Tax/Measure D is set to save you, the PVE taxpayers, an estimated $70 million – $90 million — with PVE residents being in the safer hands of the Los Angeles Sheriff.
BOTTOM LINE FOR VOTERS: This easy, law enforcement enhancing budget solution of hiring the LASD shall continue to play a significant role in Measure D failing . Why transfer $70-90 million of PVE taxpayer money into a police department’s pockets if you simply do not need to do so? Why not instead save all that money for your own retirement, your family’s regular needs or your kids’ education? It is important for residents to recognize that PVE is uniquely fortunate not to require a huge law enforcement budget due to the City being inherently safe. This is due to its remote location away from freeways/dangerous regions, few/narrow entry points, ocean and famously efficient Torrance PD protected borders, and mature/affluent demographics that lead to only rare occasion of PVE resident lawbreaking. So ask yourself, “Why is PVE spending > 99% of our property taxes, nearly 60% of the entire budget and 400% of what RPV pays per resident on its LASD police force, especially during a budget crisis?”

Corruption of Tony Dahlerbruch, Christi Hogin & George Bird (click hyperlink)
Palos Verdes Estates municipal government has been hijacked by Tony Dahlerbruch, Christi Hogin and Sheri Repp Loadsman. Our city, in which none of them actually resides, has become a science fair laboratory for them to implement anti-resident, proletarian biases and non-adherence to state and PVE laws/ordinances. What makes this most appalling is that this damage is being inflicted upon the precisely wrong subjects: people who moved to and live here in no small part for PVE’s longstanding (pre-Dahlerbruch) conservative community where laws were obeyed or otherwise enforced with consequence. The fact that this conflict persists between Dahlerbruch and PVE taxpayers paying his $250,000+/year compensation indicates an enormous chasm in the condoning PVE City Council’s ability to comprehend or care.
The PVE City Council is empowered with the duty of hiring managers to protect all city residents indiscriminately, and to manage the affairs and scarce assets of the community and its constituency. Fortunately for Palos Verdes Estates, we finally, after so many years, are rid of the five people disgraced PVE by hiring Tony Dahlerbruch: George “Child Molester Defender” Bird, Ellen Perkins, Rosemary Humphrey, Jim Goodhart and John Rea.
Rare is it that one finds a city manager as unscrupulous as he is inept. Is Tony Dahlerbruch one such character – you be the judge. Please note a series of posts/blogs at the bottom or side panel of this home page, all for your review and commentary. Comments are encouraged.

Meet the PVE City Council that Hired Tony Dahlerbruch (click hyperlink)
Local city government scandals involving corruption and negligence are a growing problem in Southern California. In just our local area, the cities of Manhattan Beach, Carson, and Hawthorne all recently have suffered at the hands of city councils hiring the wrong city managers or mayors at a time when our cities need the strongest, most honest leaders we can find.
Make no mistake about the fact that Tony Dahlerbruch influences any and all litigation involving PVE. It is part of his job description both on the PVE website and in his contract. Tony Dahlerbruch’s corrupt decision making and bad judgment has led to deeper litigation problems for Palos Verdes Estates, as seen vividly with the June 2015 ruling by a Superior Court Judge who was “astonished, to put it mildly” by Dahlerbruch/Hogin/Bird/PVHA’s illegal behavior. Judge Meiers was so appalled by the 2-year crusade by Dahlerbruch & Co. that she awarded the PV residents forced to sue the City their legal expenses, costing taxpayers for the debacle in total in excess of an estimated $300,000.00.
Listen to George Bird Commending Illegal or Invalid Acts Against PVE Residents (turn volume all the way up):
When a good city manager (vs. a horrible one such as Dahlerbruch) is lucidly aware that the City/he has broken the law (such as allowing or agreeing to an act that violates a specific law, ordinance or deed), that manager rectifies the situation by reversing the improper PVE action, rather than digging the City into a deeper hole as has Tony Dahlerbruch. Instead of Tony Dahlerbruch advising the use of scarce public taxpayer funds in ways that improve the beauty and safety of Palos Verdes Estates, those dollars are ending up in the pockets of his friend/the outsourced City Attorney Christi Hogin and related parties. This is the same City Attorney Christi Hogin who, according to the publisher of the Malibu Times, for more than a year “was the subject at every council meeting to a barrage of furious assaults on her character, her ability and her integrity.” With Tony Dahlerbruch being compensated > $250,000.00 per year, this is money that can’t go to waste.

With your help, Palos Verdes Estates can remove and replace Tony Dahlerbruch with a leader worthy of our trust. Corruption and negligence by a city official cannot be ignored, especially by the Palos Verdes Estates City Council. To his discredit in only his first 3-4 years in office, Tony Dahlerbruch already has deepened PVE’s litigation expenses and liabilities related to the sale of parkland to a private homeowner. We are hearing of more prospective litigation against the City being planned. See attending post on this site “Corruption & Negligence of Tony Dahlerbruch” for more information now and updates later.

NEGLIGENCE: def. – Conduct that falls below the standards of behavior established by law for the protection of others against unreasonable risk of harm. A person has acted negligently if he or she has departed from the conduct expected of a reasonably prudent person acting under similar circumstances
ULTRA VIRES: def. – a Latin phrase meaning “beyond the powers”. If an act requires legal authority and it is done with such authority, it is characterised in law as intra vires (“within the powers”). If it is done without such authority, it is ultra vires. Acts that are intra vires may equivalently be termed “valid” and those that are ultra vires “invalid”.
NOTES FROM SITE TO DAHLERBRUCH et. al.: All those listed on this page are encouraged to contact the site immediately if he/she would like to provide a signed, notarized affidavit exclusively disputing accusations made against him/her. Such affidavit then may be made available on this site, allowing the public to consider “his/her side” of the story.
In May 2016, a photograph (close-up of Katie Dahlerbruch apparently screaming violently with her mouth widely agape) was copyrighted after being posted on this page. However, Ms. Dahlerbruch & her photographer had missed two key deadlines. Under U.S. copyright law, if one wants to sue legitimately for copyright infringement (claiming another party has stolen one’s work), one needs to register the work with the U.S. Copyright Office a) before the infringing activity occurs and/or b ) within 90 days of the work’s publication (click here). In Ms. Dahlerbruch’s case, publication a) by the Coalition (and not Dahlerbruch) occurred prior to Dahlerbruch’s photographer’s belated registration and b) by Dahlerbruch occurred in July 2014, nearly two years prior to the Coalition’s publication of the photograph (i.e., 90-day safe harbor massively missed). However, in order to provide Dahlerbruch with a fitting consequence for hiring an attorney to demand invalidly the removal of the legally used “work,” the Coalition determined to post instead a photo (taken by a Coalition member) of Katie and Michele Dahlerbruch holding an alcoholic beverage. This photo was far more germane to the DUI Checkpoint video commentary re Katie Dahlerbruch. The Coalition obviously, given the two deadlines being missed by Dahlerbruch, reserves the right to re-post the fairly used 2014 Katie Dahlerbruch screaming photograph at any time.

† On June 22, 2016, the following communication was received from YouTube’s Legal Support Team regarding Katie Dahlerbruch’s “DUI Checkpoint” video: “We received the copyright infringement notification (attached) regarding your video(s). We believe your content is protected by fair use, fair dealing, or a similar exception to copyright protection. We are writing to let you know we do NOT plan to remove your video(s) at this time. You have control over the availability of videos on your channel, including the ability to delete them if you choose. ” Clearly, YouTube understands copyright law better than Tony Dahlerbruch.
