Under current policy, only one unit can respond code three, leaving others stuck in normal traffic. The revised policy would allow /*LAPD*/ officers to respond code three to any emergency.
The /*Los Angeles Police Protective League*/, which represents rank and file officers, supports the new policy.
Since 2006, the city of Los Angeles has paid out $11 million in cases where officers were responding to emergencies without their lights and sirens on to warn other motorists.
