Default Orange County "Good Cause" Statement

Hey there everybody, my name is Matt and I just applied for my appointment with OCSD and got my reply today. November 21st is my date, and I'd like to get your opinions on my ideas for my "Good Cause" statement.

My primary reason is that I am a charge nurse at a psychiatric facility, and at work I have received numerous death threats from patients. Most of them say something like, "If I ever see you out in the streets I'll kill you." Does this sound like enough? I also go off roading fairly frequently in areas with no cellular service and very long LE response time. Not sure if it's worth adding that bit, though I do ha e lots of photos and videos.

Documentation for my work is harder to get due to HIPPA. I could give them a copy of my badge and a pay stub, but that's about it.

Wow, less than a 3 month wait for your interview . I'm certain if you have a recent pay stub and a work ID card, that will support you work there. It's a given you face more danger from that than the average person due to your employment. You could also mention you enjoy 4-wheeling in remote areas and fear your safety due to extend law enforcement response times. Include the picture you posted here. Your good cause will be solid! Nice truck!!

Awesome, that's encouraging to hear. I'm over on tacomaworld too, if anyone else is a dual member.

The Good Cause needs to be YOUR Good Cause and not something cobbled together from the Interweb. If you can't articulate YOUR own Good Cause, the IA will see right through it and then what do you think they will do?

I believe what I'm talking about applies directly to me because people threatening to kill me is a part of my life in my profession. I'm just here looking for opinions on what I plan on putting down.

Be prepared to be asked if you take any of these threats seriously and then, if you say you do, have any been reported to the hospital. If not, why would you not report serious threats?

Just curious, but where do you off-road? I go out to Johnson Valley and Ocotillo a lot and carry when I'm out there.

Sorry for going off topic but I just wanted to compliment your truck. Looks sweet!

I have a similar GC because I work in the mental health field, and I'm up for renewal. Personally, I think it's a totally legit GC, and if anyone actually knew about the stuff we deal with they wouldn't question the issuance. If you want help with your GC ask if someone would mind reviewing it and then private message the GC to them, actually I'm going to PM you. Also I suggest not making new threads in the "county specific" section as this is sort of discouraged, just use the discussion section for new threads, or simply comment your question on the "orange county" thread. Good luck to you!

Should be sufficient.

Just be sure to be able to provide examples should you be asked about it.
