LOS ANGELES —

Seven Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies from an anti-gang unit have been notified that the department intends to fire them for being members of a secret law enforcement clique that allegedly encouraged unethical conduct.

Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said Wednesday the deputies were sent the letters this week after an internal investigation of their activities as members of a group called the Jump Out Boys.

LASD clique that named themselves 'Jump Out Boys' and had matching tattoos could be fired over claims of aggressive behaviour

Seven officers face dismissal from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department over forming a secretive group celebrating aggressive police tactics.

Calling themselves the 'Jump Out Boys’, the deputy sheriffs sport similar tattoos, allegedly depicting grimacing skulls with revolvers.

If the group are fired, it will be the largest group termination in LASD history, a spokesman said today.

The seven male officers had ‘exhibited completely inappropriate behavior’ for more than a year’s time whilst patrolling Los Angeles County, an informant told the department.

The tattoos are said to depict a red-eyed, grimacing skull holding a revolver and wearing a bandana with the initials of the group’s name.

Members who have fired their service weapons added smoke to the gun, the Los Angeles Times reported.

A 'Jump Out Boys' member who spoke to the newspaper, said the tattoos were common and that the group is not sinister, adding that the ‘alpha dog’ team follow a code of conduct which states that the group ’think and act like the wolf, but never become the wolf’.

The seven deputy sheriffs may be sacked as a result of 'inappropriate behaviour' whilst patrolling the streets of LA

The seven were relieved of duty with pay earlier last year, and will have the right to defend themselves at a departmental hearing, LASD spokesman Steve Whitmore told NY Post.
