LAPD Officers Stopped from Doing Overtime

Hosted by

As Los Angeles tries to cope with mounting financial problems, Mayor Villaraigosa insists that furloughs and layoffs don't apply to public safety. But the LAPD is not immune from efforts to save money. Today's LA Times reports that a top homicide investigator sat idle for six weeks, not because he'd done anything wrong but because he'd racked up too much overtime. David Doan is Chief of Detectives.
