Sheriffs’ Relief Association
Recruit Uniform & Equipment Voucher – Loan Program
The Sheriffs’ Relief Association has initiated a new no interest loan program to assist new Los Angeles County Sheriff Deputy trainees with the costs associated with the uniform and equipment purchases required upon entering the academy. These costs can easily exceed $1,000.00 and can be a potential financial burden on new trainees pursuing a career with the LASD. The program works as follows:
A recruit, upon being formally hired by the LASD Personnel Bureau, will be advised of the Uniform & Equipment Voucher Loan program offered by the Sheriffs’ Relief Association. They will be provided with a Recruit Purchase Sheet which will detail all the equipment required at some time during their training phase and the cost of the item(s) currently sold at either of the two SRA Emporiums located at the following locations:
STARS Center Emporium Pitchess Detention Center Emporium
11515 Colima Road, Bldg B 29300 The Old Road,
Whittier, CA 90604 Castaic, CA 91384
(562) 946-7271 (661) 257-5320
The recruit can then respond to either of the above store locations and contact store personnel to arrange for the purchase of necessary requested list items.
(One can purchase whatever they want that is on the list, but the loan program only covers those items on the list and not other items sold at the emporiums)
Loans are then paid back to SRA at equal no interest payments over a period of one year via county payroll deduction. In order to qualify for this program and loan, all applicants must join SRA at the time of purchase.
*** This program is limited to a one time visit and purchase at one of the two emporiums.
