We often cover abusive arrests and conduct by police officers. The fact is that the good work of officers goes without notice because it is neither news or the subject of a case. Yet, most officers conduct themselves in a professional and civil manner despite the dangers and stresses of their jobs. So we can finally take note of a story where an officer set a record of complaints in a good way. L.A. Sheriff’s Deputy Elton Simmons has written over 20,000 tickets as a traffic cop over 20 years and he has never been the subject of a complaint. Not one.
Capt. Pat Maxwell said he was shocked in the review of Simmons to find no complaint ever lodged against him. While this story first aired last year, I was just sent the video below and thought it worth posting with a belated congratulations to Deputy Sheriff Simmons.
