If You Don’t Have a License, Who Gets the Car?
The City of Los Angeles impounds the cars of unlicensed drivers for up to 30 days, which costs an average of $2000. Mayor Villaraigosa and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck want to end that practice—but the police rank and file say that would endanger public safety. As we’ll hear, it’s all about the lives--and livelihoods--of illegal immigrants, who aren’t allowed to get licenses in the first place.
Police Protective League rejects new impound policy
In a policy reversal, the LAPD has decided to no longer immediately seize vehicles of unlicensed drivers, including undocumented immigrants, when they are stopped at sobriety checkpoints, but the Police Protective League is not on board. Calling it “the right thing to do” Chief Beck announced that officers will give what he calls “reasonable time” to unlicensed illegal immigrants to find someone else to drive their car home. The police union argues that his new policy violates current vehicle code, threatens the safety of drivers and could even expose LA city to legal liabilities. So what is the right thing to do? Who gets the final word and what happens next?

LAPD: Time For Overtime?
Stop hiring new officers and give the current ones overtime pay. That's the position of the Los Angeles Police Protective League. President Paul Weber joins Fred Roggin to discuss whether overtime pay in lieu of new officers fulfills the department's duty to protect and to serve.
