A memorandum is your chance to tell your side of the story. The Local 2554 can help you tell that story. Memorandums will affect your career and your life for good or for bad. At a minimum you should have another Agent look over your memorandum. El Centro Sector is the number one sector for use of force incidents and assaults on Agents. Our memos are the first line of defense for protecting Agents. Your memo will be reviewed by lawyers and civilians. It is imperative that your memo is written without law enforcement jargon so that a civilian that sits on a Grand Jury can understand it. The maximum amount of time possible should be spent on your memo to make it perfect because your career and life depend upon it.
