Towing Issue Hits the Paper
In the Sun Times (the police friendly newspaper - NOT!) the following story:
- The actions followed a Sun-Times story that reported the department is investigating a handful of police employees for suspected misuse of disabled parking signs.
- One unmarked police car was towed at 12:30 p.m. Thursday in the 100 block of West Washington and another at 12:48 p.m. Friday in the 1500 block of West Taylor, police spokeswoman Monique Bond said. Both were in "no parking anytime" zones.
- Tuesday, Fraternal Order of Police President Mark Donahue called the memo "inappropriate," adding: "It's an attempt to relieve the officers of discretion. It's caused a lot of concern among the membership.
Grievable? We'll see. In the meantime, the comments sections are abuzz with reports of the 009th District hammering Streets and San drivers with tickets, despite Monique Bond's denials to the contrary. The Games appear to have begun.
