    1st Vice President
    John Tuchek


    (310) 944-4239

    My Carrier began in March 1979 as I was hired as a Group Supeverison 1 at BJ. I transfrreder to LPJH as a GS 1.   In 1984 I was promoted to DSO at LPJH.  In 1986 I was promoted to Sr, DSO at BJ.  While on Probation I was nominated as the Institution Vice President for Local 685.  I continued with the union, representing those in the three halls.  During negotiations we negotiated lateral transfers from the institutions to the field for those who held 4 yrs degrees.  We also negotiated equitable distribution of overtime for obvious reasons.  In 1988 I lateraled as a promotion to DPO II to field services, and was assigned to the East Los Angeles Area Office's Placement Unit.  In 1989 I was reassigned to the East Los Angeles Gang Unit, and moved up the union rank as Fields Vice President. two years later I became the First Vice president for 685.   My tenure in gangs and union we  secured the toys your accustom to now, (probation raid jackets, Cars, vest, flash lights, Pepper spray, batons and finally firearms).  In 1998 I was promoted to SDPO and assigned to the newly created program "CRASH/DISARM" unit and within a year I became incharged of the departments first armed pilot program. Additionnaly, I broke away from union activities as I had my hands full, but I supported their cause and I joined the Supervisors union.   I ran this unit out of the pilot program into a viable program.  I remained in this assignment until 1913, when my weapon was pulled by the Bureau Chief for her peronal agenda.  It was at this time, the fight was on, I became active in the supervisors union and with their help, I securred a large settlement from the department.  As the story goes, I became very much involved in our Association as noted in the position I currently hold.  Wth the help of my Peers, I brought Peer Support to this department and later the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge# 702, with it the Legal Defense Fund.
