You're confusing results with services. The citizens do not pay command for a service. They pay them for a result. The Mayor is supposed to remove the chief when there are too many bad results. A bad hiring decision is a result or an outcome. A more intelligently worded question is how did LPD, JCPD, and now LMPD get so many bad results from the hiring process? I'm talking about the sex stalkers, the rapists, the pedophiles, the people beating people up like it's normal, and the people who lack enough presence of mind to avoid shooting unarmed people. Here are some reasons.

1. Lack of a full sit-down psychological assessment because it cost too much.

2. Hiring certain (not all) females, minorities and peoples relatives just because they're females, minorities, and peoples relatives. Quotas had to be met in some cases and favors had to be paid back in others. Command was always especially reluctant to fire them until a long while after the news people started talking about them.

3. Ignoring derogatory information uncovered in background checks. In the old days it was for those listed under #3. Now it's because so few people want to work here.

Even if you go back and find absolutely nothing in Corder's history and that psychologists found him suitable, LPD had multiple chances to do something about his misconduct and abuses beginning in the 1990s. He wasn't fired until several years later. Why is that? Answer an honest question for me and don't run away from the question.
