In the news: Federal authorities to announce racketeering charges against 7 Baltimore Police officers

“Federal authorities are set to announce racketeering charges against seven Baltimore Police officers, with accusations including robberies, filing false affidavits, and making fraudulent overtime claims.”


US Border Patrol, Port Angeles, WA-

July 28th, 2011:

Border Patrol whistleblower pays price for refusing overtime pay

Public agency in question makes an inside deal- like negotiating a record contract or signing a business executive-

Seattle Times:

“terms are confidential.”

Deal results in further suppression of information.

Oversight? Checks and balances?

Reporters asking questions? Not a chance.

Zero reporting on the following questions:

Are fraudulent overtime claims the norm at Port Angeles?

Does the practice still continue?

How long did it go on?

Our Washington State Patrol opened a criminal investigation in a similar case:

Ex-trooper charged with official misconduct for overtime pay

We can see that other LE agencies take the issue seriously:


Investigation into Overtime Fraud at Detroit Police Department Expanding

Fort Worth:

Police Officers Accused of Overtime Fraud

Des Plaines:

13 Des Plaines officers suspended in fraudulent OT investigation

Washington DC:


Local law enforcement agencies set the example in sharing public information with the public-

Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Sheriff’s Log: Feb 1, 2017

Port Townsend Police Department Police log: Feb 22, 2017

Where is the US Border Patrol blotter?


Why did the Blaine Sector Weekly US Border Patrol blotter go extinct?

Has the Port Angeles Border Patrol been able to intercept any inbound heroin?

When is the last time the Port Angeles Border Patrol made an arrest of any kind?

Any arrests connected to the US/Canada border?

Any arrests connected to a Homeland Security mission?



Please do a story describing the working relationship you have with the Washington State Patrol, local sheriffs departments and city police departments. Any denied FOIA requests generated by these agencies? Please compare to the Border Patrol at Port Angeles.



Why are we told that Port Angeles Border Patrol arrest statistics must be kept secret? This is not standard protocol for American LE agencies.

Arrest statistics are secret:

US Border Patrol, Port Angeles, WA-

Aug 2010-

A US Border Patrol spokesperson tells the press:

“Border Patrol spokeswoman Jenny Burke said Monday that the agency will not release any information on the number of arrests made by agents who work out of the Port Angeles station, the names of those arrested, what they were arrested for and the disposition of their cases”

“The number of arrests for Port Angeles’ or any other station is “law enforcement-sensitive,” Burke said.”

“The names of those arrested and other facts about them are not available for release under the 1974 Privacy Act, she said.”

Aug 2011-

“In March, Supervisory Border Patrol Agent Richard Sinks declined to release statistics on apprehensions or detainments made by the Port Angeles station.”

“Disclosure of the arrest statistics from the Port Angeles station would provide those interested in crossing our borders illegally with information that could aid their strategic targeting of potentially vulnerable areas along the border,” he said in an e-mail. “To maintain operational security these numbers will not be provided.”

No secret arrests here:
