In a significant move, a California sheriff’s office has decided to reassign 47 deputies from active law enforcement duties due to unsatisfactory results in their psychological exams during the hiring process, Your Content has learned.

This decision, which affects nearly 5 percent of the 1,000-member force, aims to ensure the well-being and efficiency of the department.

The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office made the call to reassign the deputies to desk duty after learning about their below-par psychological evaluation scores. As part of the upcoming steps, the department plans to have an external firm conduct retesting in the next few months.

This action comes in the wake of concerns raised by anonymous sources, who claim that the exam process may have its flaws. However, Sheriff Gregory Ahern is determined to address the situation responsibly, taking necessary measures to maintain the standards and integrity of the force.

It’s worth noting that one former deputy charged with murder reportedly failed the psychological exam before being hired, emphasizing the importance of such evaluations in ensuring a competent and mentally fit law enforcement team, according to FlipBoard.
