IS THERE ORGANIZED CRIME IN SAN MATEO COUNTY?

By Michael G. Stogner

While Boston Mass has had the “Winter Hill Gang” and New York “the Five Families”, what should we call the boutique public corruption family of San Mateo County? Or does it deserve such a largesse label? Should members refer to one another, to distinguish themselves from the general public, as “friends of ours”? I know, in at least one instance, members had been referred to as “Those Who Matter”. But are there any others distinguishing terms members should use, to identify one another, such as “made man/woman”?

I submit, these things are important, in order for both residents & outsiders alike to fully appreciate both the scale and depth of what has taken root in San Mateo County. It is also necessary to recognize boundaries and expectations (expected conduct), when interacting with members & associates of the described group. You wouldn’t want to inadvertently run afoul of it and individual members, lest you suffer consequences.

How does one ask for a favor from this group? What is expected, in return?

Can one obtain insurance from it, in order to avoid problems? At what cost?

And, when so insured, can one expect favorable outcomes? How far do such outcomes extend-law enforcement, litigation/prosecutions, judicial decisions, etc.?

In order to be a successful enterprise, the group needs to clearly, either explicitly or implicitly, communicate these things. Or has it already done so, either by act or omission? Is the Batmobile Raid & Prosecution not just such an example?

ABC7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes did an excellent job, in bringing to light the Batmobile Raid and corruption involved, but he did not drill down into the obvious, that Sheriff Bolanos’ favor for Atherton Resident/Relator Sam Anagnostou was not possible, without District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe and his staff.

DA Wagstaffe was not only a witting participant, in the matter, he was an essential enabler! None of the search warrant affidavits and the arrest warrant request involved could have been presented to a judge, without first being reviewed and approved by DA Wagstaffe’s office. Furthermore, it was DA Wagstaffe’s Office which collaborated in the investigation and actually crafted & filed the criminal complaint, in the case!

The questions reporter Dan Noyes did not ask Wagstaffe, ones essential to obtain the truth of the matter, are what did he (Wagstaffe) know of the Batmobile investigation, when did he know it, what communications/discussions had he had with Sheriff Bolanos about the matter, when had such discussions occurred, and what communications had his office had with prosecutors, in Cass County, Indiana, and when?

DA Wagstaffe is known to be a hands-on manager, a person deeply involved in the day-to-day operations of his office, meaning for him to say he was unaware of the Batmobile Raid & Case is just not credible. One only has to look at who, at his office, is involved (executive staff members MarieMcLaughlin and Sean Gallagher, an Assistant and Chief District Attorney, respectively, versus line workers) to see DA Wagstaffe’s DNA & fingerprints, are all over the body of evidence.

DA Wagstaffe also knows of Sheriff Bolanos’ past reckless behavior.

Such as his having previously been detained by the FBI and Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, at a seedy human trafficking site, one with indentured sex slaves to include a minor & drugs, in Clark County, Las Vegas, Nevada April 21, 2007 Operation Dollhouse.

In fact, Wagstaffe had actually consoled Bolanos, following his having been caught there. So, again, for DA Wagstaffe to portray himself as having been anything other than a willing participant (principal) in the Batmobile Investigation & Raid is just not believable.

This is the way things are done, in San Mateo County, and if you’re not a person that matters, forget about it

3 San Mateo County Judges in “Batmobile Case” What are their names?

By Michael G. Stogner

22-SF-008723-A | The People of the State of California vs. MARK RACOP

SMC District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe was quoted in a 8/18/22 article by Michelle Iracheta and Leah Worthington / Redwood City Pulse

“We’ve had three judges look at it. Two judges looked at the search warrant and said, ‘Yep, there is probable cause to believe that a crime has been committed, and these records would be evidence of it,'” he said. A third judge reviewed and approved the charges and issued an arrest warrant.

A third judge reviewed and approved the charges and issued an arrest warrant. What is the name of THIS San Mateo County Judge?

San Mateo County’s Elite Special Ops Gang of FOUR

Remember this Elite Special Ops Gang of FOUR intended to Grab Mr. Mark Racop and bring him back to San Mateo County on a Flight? Did they already pay for his Flight, and was it one way or round trip?

That looks a little like Kidnapping doesn’t it.

It’s been more than 74 days since this case was filed in San Mateo County Court and the Public still doesn’t know the names of the THREE JUDGES who touched this case. WHY?

74 days ago was Election Day in San Mateo County, just a fact.

One down One to to go.

By Michael G. Stogner

Candidate for Congress David Canepa & Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos who lost Re-election 2022.

The Edais family of Daly City has politely requested that Supervisor David Canepa RESIGN.

“You are not fit to be the voice of the people.”

The last person this family requested to Resign or be Fired was Daly City Manager Shawnna Maltbie who has since quietly submitted her letter of Retirement.

Both of these outstanding Human Beings have refused to sign the Edais Family’s Petition.

I personally think the Daly City Police Department missed a Plethora of Red Flags in this Very Suspicious Death of a Police Officer. For starters there was the SECOND VOICE confirmed on the 911 call at 2:00 AM. Who did that voice belong to? What date and time did the DCPD Identify and Interview this person. Next is the Nanny Camera in the Bedroom, that would have been good for the DCPD to take as Evidence IMHO. The list goes on and on.

I had never heard of the Munir Edais Suspicius Death that happened sometime between January 19-21, 2020 until the family reached out to me on May 5, 2022.

San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa has been asked to RESIGN.

By Michael G. Stogner

Supervisor David Canepa is a Candidate for Congress.

The Edais family of Daly City, have asked Supervisor David Canepa to resign.

Here is just ONE reason why.

President of the Board of Supervisors David Canepa and former Mayor of Daly City, California never once communicated to the Edais family about the Very Suspicious Death of their loved one. This traumatized family who is simply searching for the honest answers into the cause of death of 32 year old Munir Edais a Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Officer who died sometime between January 19-21, 2020.

Since when has getting a second opinion a bad or negative thing.

Do Police Departments ever make mistakes? YES

Do Coroners ever make mistakes or get it wrong? YES

San Mateo Residents know or should know about Coroner Robert Foucralt and Organ Harvesting thanks to a very brave Picon Family. Nicholas Picon R.I.P. October 2006.

The Edais family reached out to David Canepa the newly appointed President of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors for help. He responded by giving his private cellphone number.

Here is what the sister has said about that interaction.

I only use Facebook to post information about my brother Munirs death. Right when I opened the app, I came across this video of an 11 year old girl speaking about her experience with the mayor abusing his powers. Long story short, she earned a black belt in Taekwondo, but couldn’t receive it because her mom voiced her opinion on the recall. The mayor uninvited her to the ceremony making tons of excuses why. This girl is only a few years younger than me, and inspired me to speak about my issue regarding David Canepa running for congress.

She was talking about the Successful Recall of Foster City Council member Herb Perez.

NBC Article Perez Recalled for Bullying

On January 19, 2021, my family and I reached out to supervisor David Canepa, at the time, in hopes of him helping us with our brothers death. My brother, Munir Edais was reported dead on January 21, 2020 by a supposed suicide.
Trying to find some answers answers regarding Munirs death, we reached out to David Canepa. He sent me a private message saying to call him, and left us his phone number. We called him, and got the opposite reaction of what we expected. He was very rude and unsympathetic. He claimed Daly City police department had the best investigators and yelled at us saying “what are you guys doing!” He said we need to shut down our instagram page, and rest with the fact that Munir killed himself. But if DCPD had good investigators we wouldn’t be here begging him for help.

Our family has had many sleepless nights trying to think about which steps to take next. We had no time to mourn the death of our loved one because our main focus is putting away those who caused us this heart ache. As a resident of Daly City and San Mateo County, we deserve better elected officials. after all, we’re the ones voting them in.

Why would the President of SMC BOS tell a Family they need to shut down their Instagram page?

What does David Canepa know about the Very Suspicious Death of a Police Officer in his Daly City Apartment that I don’t know?

Here is what I know, according to an Audio Expert who has examined the 911 call placed at 1:59:10 AM on January 21, 2020. A second voice has been confirmed in close proximity to Eman.

What does Candidate for Congress David Canepa say about the SECOND VOICE on the 911 call?

Another thing for David Canepa to think about is that the Edais Family recently asked for Daly City Manager Shawnna Maltie to be FIRED or RESIGN. She announced her RETIREMENT.

David Canepa did you ever read this Report?

By Michael G. Stogner

I have watched the video more than 40 times and read every page of reports.

SMC Supervisor David Canepa

Candidate for Congress David Canepa, did you ever watch the 30 minute PR Creation VIDEO?

When the first sentence starts off with a lie, that sets the stage for what is to follow.

San Mateo County District Attorney’s report on Chinedu V. Okobi’s Homicide.

The first sentence: The San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office has concluded its investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Mr. Chinedu Okobi, which occurred on October 3, 2018 after a physical struggle with five deputies from the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office on the 1400 block of El Camino Real in Millbrae.

No mention of CSO Joseph Gonzales the 6th SMCSO employee, Why?

What else was missing from the PR Creation?

Chinedu Valentine Okobi R.I.P.

Shawnna Maltbie, Munir Edais’ Suspicious Death and Suspicious Investigation. Let’s Audit.

By Michael G. Stogner

Shawnna Maltbie the City Manager of Daly City is responsible for the behavior of the Daly City Police Department. Munir Edais’ R.I.P. Father has asked Shawnna Maltbie for a Special Public Meeting to see if the Daly City Police Department followed their own Death Investigations Policy.

Daly City Police Department Death Investigations Policy

344.2.3 Death Cases
Death investigations require specific investigation methods depending on circumstances and should be handled in accordance with the Death Investigations Policy. The handling officer should notify and apprise a supervisor of the circumstances surrounding the incident to determine how to proceed. The following cases shall be appropriately investigated and documented using the approved report: (a) Sudden or accidental deaths. (b) Suicides. (c) Homicide or suspected homicide

Eman Edais (new wife of 6 months) placed a 911 call to San Mateo County Dispatch at 1:59 AM on January 21, 2020.

Lorena Reyes the first Daly City Police Officer #2135 to respond to the scene. January 21, 2020 This is from her report.
They have no children in common but she is 5 months pregnant with his child.

Eman Edais stated in the last two days they were arguing about an issue she did not want to disclose.
She said he was sad and upset about the relationship.

I asked Eman Edais several times what was the issue they had; however, Eman said she did not want to talk about it because “His family will hate her.”

Eman repeatedly continued to say his death was “her fault,” but did not disclose why.

She told me there was a camera in bedroom #2 that was motion detection, however, Munir Mustafa Edais only had access to the application.

Eman also told me Munir Mustafa Edais was a police officer for Los Gatos Police Department.

At approximately 0247 = 2:47 AM I requested the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office be paged to my cell phone. Deputy Coroner Holly Benedict #15 called me and I advised her of the details to this case.

Daly City Police Officer Lorena Reyes had solved this Supicious Death Investigation in less than 45 minutes. That has to be some kind of record for San Mateo County Law Enforcement. She never secured the scene, didn’t remove Eman Edais from the apartment.

Any reasonable person would support the Public Audit of the Daly City Police Department, Lets see what the Daly City Government does.

In order to FORGET you would first need to know about Police Officer Munir Edais, Supicious Death in the First Place.

By Michael G. Stogner

Police Officer Munir Edais was found dead in his Daly City apartment 28 months ago. Who knew, I never heard about it until 8 days ago, How about you, when did you learn about it?

Shawanna Maltbie Please explain your Daly City Police Deparment’s behavior.
Daly City Manager Shawanna Maltbie

What actions did you take to assure the residents of Daly City and San Mateo County that the Police Department you are responsible for conducted a professional Suspicious Death Investigation of Los Gatos/Monte Sereno Police Officer and Father of two girls on January 21, 2020.

What was your personal response to the family’s Petition to Re-Open the Murder Investigation of a Police Officer/Father and Daly City Resident with more than 25,000 signatures. Did you ever make a Public Comment about it. If Not why didn’t you?

Shawanna Maltbie, Did you ever think to ask Daly City Police Sergeant Keith Mattos a Homicide Dectective of 28 years, These two questions: Did you say that? Yes or No and if the answer was YES, the next question would be What did you mean by “Never seen this much blood on a hanging victim.”

On 25th April 2021, the page posted an alleged quote by Keith Mattos, a sergeant at Daly City Police Department, saying, “In my 28 years as a homicide detective, I have never seen this much blood on a hanging victim.”

Did your Police Department ask/have the wife who made the 911 call at 2:00 AM on January 21, 2020 to take a Polygraph Test to verify if she was being truthful? The reason I ask this question is I am aware of the San Mateo County District Attorney Inspector Rick Decker asking a mother of 2 that I was assisting in filing a criminal complaint against her ex husband in a Family Law Matter, if she would be willing to take a Polygraph Test she said of course took it and passed with flying colors. We had already provided the photos which proved fraud I’m guessing the request was because her ex husband was a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy. He was never asked to take one.

So I do know that Polygraph Tests are sometimes even given to VICTIMS who are simply reporting a crime in SMC.

How long did your Police Department Investigate this Suspicious Death as a potential Homicide?

Shawanna here is the Petition in case you have never heard about it.

I don’t know if you ever signed it, if not please do it right now. I suggest it Never was a Murder Investigation in the first place. You can take care of that.

Petition Re-Open a Murder Investigation of Munir Edais

San Mateo County and Deleting E-mails, What is the policy today?

By Michael G. Stogner

LATIMES Editorial Today March 28, 2022

Deleting government emails too quickly is not OK
A fundamental principle of a free and open society is that citizens have a right to know what’s going on inside their government.
A crucial way Californians exercise this right is with the state’s Public Records Act , which allows people to see email correspondence, contracts and other documents held by local and state officials.
It’s how, early in the pandemic, journalists were able to reveal the details of California’s scramble to obtain medical masks, including the collapse of a nearly $800-million deal with a politically connected vendor and the decision to secretly wire nearly half a billion dollars to a company that had been in business for just three days — only to quickly call off the deal and claw back the money.
Emails obtained under the law allowed The Times and environmental activists to expose how Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration worked to influence decisions in favor of a controversial water desalination plant. And documents The Times obtained under the law showed that the state parks department let some employees live at government-owned homes in some of California’s most scenic locales for cut-rate rents averaging $215 a month.
The law is clear that state agencies must, with some exceptions, release records in their possession. But what’s not clear is how long they must hang onto those documents. And this is critical, because the government can effectively hide records it doesn’t want the public to see by destroying or deleting them before anyone asks for them. Nothing to see here! Literally.
Legislation moving through the Capitol addresses the issue by requiring that all state agencies retain digital and paper records for at least two years. State law already requires that local governments do this, but state agencies have been allowed to decide for themselves how long to hang onto different kinds of records, and the range is huge. Just within the California Environmental Protection Agency, for example, retention timelines vary from 90 days for informal emails, to a decade for documents related to environmental justice investigations of birth defects, to permanent storage of correspondence with tribal governments.
Recently, when the Department of Insurance announced plans to start deleting emails after 180 days, an employee complained that they needed access to older emails to keep track of past communications in enforcement cases. The department, already facing litigation for not releasing detailed calendars requested under the Public Records Act, backtracked on the plan to speed up email deletion.
Assembly Bill 2370 would make clear that all state records, including email, must be retained for at least two years. Its author, Assemblyman Marc Levine (D-Greenbrae), is running for insurance commissioner this year with a campaign echoing the same concerns raised by Consumer Watchdog, the group that sued current Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara for calendars detailing his appointments with industry executives who contributed to his campaign. So this bill clearly has some political overtones.
But that does not negate the fact that it would advance government transparency and serve the public interest. We urge the Legislature to continue advancing the bill.
Similar legislation passed in 2019 but was vetoed by Newsom, who said it would be too costly to store data and hire the necessary personnel to manage retaining records. The Legislature’s price tag on that bill was vague, saying that “state costs could reach into the millions of dollars.”
Lawmakers ought to do a more thorough cost analysis this time around, including taking into account advances in technology that are continually reducing the cost of data storage. And then weigh that against the moral penalty for keeping the public in the dark.

San Mateo County’s Idea of Homelessness.

By Michael G. Stogner

Does this look like Homeless to you?

Some San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy quotes from today’s LATIMES Article By Brittny Mejia

The long-term goal, he said, is to see the temporary shelters go away and affordable housing take their place.

The county is using an additional $55.3-million Homekey grant to construct and operate a navigation center with 240 units in Redwood City.

“Our Year of Working Together to End Homelessness.” In it, Callagy called this the highest priority for himself and the Board of Supervisors.

Using federal CARES Act funds and state Homekey money,

“We’re calling this the year to end homelessness in San Mateo County. This is a lofty goal, don’t get me wrong. This is very lofty. But we believe that we can get there,” said Mike Callagy, county manager. “We want to be the first to end homelessness of any county in California.”

This is the same County Manager and the same Five Supervisors that just last January 13, 2022 acknowledged to ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes that they knew Absolutely Nothing about several San Mateo County employees making agreements with James Brown President of Wine Country Marines a 501-c located in Sonoma County, and also President of West Coast Solution Inc, located in San Carlos, to distribute the more than $10,000,000.00 of PPE, on January 25, 2022.

I mention Supervisor David Canepa because he is a Candidate for Congress right this minute. This is what he said about the PPE.

“I don’t think it’s a San Mateo County Issue.”

Broadmoor Police and a Ghost Employee. “They were lining their pockets for years.”

By Michael G. Stogner

This article below is from the SacBee and it’s mostly about the reporting to CalPERS. Steve Landi also called the San Mateo County Whistleblower Hotline to report this in 2017. Who in San Mateo County handled that complaint? That would be a good question for the 5 Supervisors to answer.

CalPERS double-dip audit came too late

MANNY CRISOSTOMO SPECIAL TO THE BEE

Retired police officer Steve Landi stands in front of the Broadmoor Police Department in Daly City in January. Landi complained to the California Public Employees’ Retirement System in 2016 that Police Chief David Parenti was working full time, earning thousands a month, while illegally collecting retirement benefits. A CalPERS audit team determined that Parenti was one of three police chiefs and a top commander in the department who defrauded the pension system for a decade, together collecting as much as $2 million.

RDIAMOND@SACBEE.COM

Retired police officer Steve Landi complained to the California Public Employees’ Retirement System back in 2016 that his police chief was working full-time earning thousands a month while illegally collecting retirement benefits.

A CalPERS audit team finally arrived in May 2021. Last month, it said that, sure enough, Landi’s boss, Broodmoor Police Chief David Parenti was one of three police chiefs and a top commander in the department that defrauded the pension system for a decade, together collecting as much as $2 million.

It was one of the largest abuses of retirement benefits in years — so egregious that the local district attorney is considering criminal charges.

It also raises a question for Landi as well as Parenti’s two successors: Why did it take CalPERS so long to figure it out and take action?

“They were lining their pockets for years,” said Landi, who joined the department in 2015 after retiring from the San Francisco Police Department. “It’s corruption at its finest.”

CalPERS is a retirement system like no other in the U.S. It covers state employees but also the workers at some 3,000 municipalities, school districts, authorities and other governmental entities. More than 650,000 retirees and another 1 million or so current employees are covered by CalPERS. 

A FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE

Broadmoor was under scrutiny by CalPERS for failing to enroll some officers in the pension fund at the time, but not for the chief’s double dipping. That suggests to former insiders such as J.J. Jelinic that the CalPERS division that monitors employee enrollment issues has little coordination with another unit assigned to examine double-dipping and other violations of state retirement law.

“The right hand doesn’t know know what the left is doing,” said Jelinic, a former CalPERS investment staffer and board member 

Consider this irony: Landi said he and other police officers in Broadmoor were told by Parenti that the small 11-person department, two miles from the San Francisco line, couldn’t afford to enroll them in the CalPERS retirement program.

“He said the police department was going broke and we were encouraged to quit our jobs,” Landi said.

CALPERS RESPONSE

CalPERS officials insist they only learned or the double-dipping last year, but in 2017 they started requiring that Broadmoor enroll Landi and other members of the police force into CalPERS

Landi said in the same November 2016 email that he complained about Parenti. He also detailed how other members of the Broadmoor department were not enrolled in the retirement system.

CalPERS officials say they never received the complaint about Parenti. But they also say the membership division, which receives complaints about members not being enrolled in CalPERS is separate from the audit division, which examines issues like double-dipping — employees illegally receiving retirement benefits and working full-time.

Records show that Broadmoor repaid around $200,000 in back pension contributions to CalPERS for seven Broadmoor employees, including Landi, between 2017 and 2019, who were never enrolled in the pension’s system.

CalPERS spokeswoman Amy Morgan said a CalPERS employee not enrolling its workers in a pension system won’t necessarily automatically trigger an audit.

“The complaint was about membership enrollment issues, while the audit focused on working after retirement,” she said.

Morgan said CalPERS uses its own risk metrics, which she won’t specify, and complaints, to determine which of CalPERS 3,0000 employees to monitor. Around 240 audits are done a year. On that schedule, it would take more than 12 years for every CalPERS agency to be reviewed.

A ‘RED FLAG’ IS MISSED

Former Broadmoor Police Chief Mike Connolly, who was not charged with wrongdoing in connection with the CalPERS audit, said the back retirement payments Broadmoor was forced to make to CalPERS was a sign that there were larger problems.

“It should have been a red flag,” said Connolly, who had served as the third highest ranking police officer in the San Francisco Police Department before retiring and joining Broadmoor in 2019.

CalPERS rules prevent double-dipping at agencies that participate in the retirement program. Once retired, pensioners can only work part-time.

Broadmoor’s current chief Mark Melville is also perplexed on why an audit was not done on the police department earlier since CalPERS became aware of issues back in 2017 with employees not being enrolled in the pension system. 

“They should have done a lot of things back in 2017 that they didn’t do,” he said of CalPERS.

RESULT OF THE AUDIT

The CalPERS audit found that Parenti improperly increased his yearly pension retirement from $93,000 a year to $152,292 a year by coming out of retirement in December 2012, working for 13 months and then retiring again. Even then, the audit said Parenti was never actually retired, continuing to collect more than $6,000 in salary per two week-pay period.

The audit said while continuing to work, Parenti also received a more than $100,000 disability payment from CalPERS, which shielded his retirement income from taxes. The disability payment under state law should have ended his work career at the Broadmoor Police Department.

Parenti joined Broadmoor in 2005 after serving as an investigator for the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office. One of his assignments was providing security for the then District Attorney Kamala Harris, now the vice president.

The CalPERS audit detailed how Parenti’s predecessor, Chief Greg Love also collected worked full-time while receiving retirement benefits and also received a disability payment of more than $100,000 but continued working.

POSSIBLE CRIMINAL CHARGES

San Mateo County District Attorney Steven Wagstaffe said he has launched a criminal probe that is examining whether Parenti and Love should be charged criminally.

Broadmoor is the last police department of its kind in California. It’s formally called the Broadmoor Police District. There is no Broadmoor City Hall. The police district taxes the approximate 4,000 residents of the unincorporated area of San Mateo County, covering an area of about 1.8 square miles, to fund its approximate $2 million budget.

It is surrounded by Daly City — population 107,000 — on three sides, and Colma — population, 1,500 — on another.

Connolly was present when the audit team arrived on May 10, 2021 at Broadmoor. He was eager to provide some new information about a Broadmoor “ghost employee” who was receiving CalPERS benefits.

“They said that’s for another day, they weren’t looking at those issues,” Connolly said.

The police chief said he also tried to tell the audit team that up to another 20 former Broadmoor employees dating back two decades had worked at Broodmoor , some for as little as a few months, and might be eligible for CalPERS benefits. Connolly said audit team members said that was an issue for the another team, the membership team. 

A ‘GHOST EMPLOYEE’?

Connolly and Broadmoor’s current chief Mark Melville both say that the “ghost employee,” police officer Alan Johnson, never worked for the department, though police department records have him on the payroll from around 2003 to 2005.

Johnson had worked at the San Mateo County Sheriffs Office and other police agencies before his name started appearing on the Broadmoor payroll. 

Melville said some records are missing but it’s likely that Johnson was loaned to a federal drug task force with Broadmoor footing the bill.

Yet, he said it would be “very unusual” for a small 11-person department, the size of Broadmoor, to be loaning an officer to another police agency.

“You wouldn’t see a department that small doing that,” he said.

Johnson has been receiving a monthly CalPERS retirement benefit of $4,538.16 a month for his reported Broadmoor work and from time at two other agencies that pay CalPERS benefits, show pension system records. 

CalPERS spokeswoman Amy Morgan said CalPERS doesn’t plan a review of Johnson pension because a former Broadmoor employer, commander Ralph Cole, certified that Johnson had worked for and retired from the police agency back in 2005.

“If there is any other information that we should look at that says otherwise, please provide and we will review,” Morgan said.

Cole and Johnson were unable to be reached for comment.

The 2021 audit review came after the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office forwarded an anonymous 2021 letter to the pension plan, citing the double-dipping at the police district. CalPERS officials also said they were planning the audit because of other information, which they won’t disclose.

CalPERS officials said its membership division, which handles complaints about workers not being enrolled in the retirement system, is separate from the audit division.

It is that separation and the resulting lack of communication that concerns Jelincic, the former CalPERS board member.

Jelincic said the problem is especially troubling with CalPERS underfunded by tens of billions of dollars, and more than 2 million people dependent on the pension system for the retirement,

“How many other employers are defrauding the system?” he asked.

CalPERS officials deny and say while audits can discover errors in pay classifications and other matters affecting retirement benefits, most aren’t intentional and are resolved.

Love also continued in his chief’s job after receiving his CalPERS pension and also received a disability award of more than $100,000 but that did not stop his Broadmoor paychecks.

CalPERs General Counsel Matt Jacobs rejects the assertions that it took CalPERS too many years to do the audit of Broadmoor. 

“The claims by Broadmoor officials are like the criminals saying we should have caught them sooner,” he said in a statement. 

A VOW TO DO THINGS PROPERLY

Melville who became Broadmoor police chief on Dec. 14, had worked for several California police agencies and was retired receiving CalPERS benefits.

He said he came out of retirement to fully comply with California law while working at Broadmoor and plans to make sure that everything is done properly at the police department.

“Broadmoor was mismanaged in the past,” he said 

He said he also welcomes a late December CalPERS request for the payroll records of all current 11 employees saying the police department wants to follow all pension system rules.
