To Protect and to Serve, But Somewhere Else

Aaa_19 Recruits who train at the Los Angeles Police Department's police academy are required to sign contracts that require them to repay all or part of their $60,000 training costs if they leave the department before five years are up.  Turns out some leave anyway -- and now the City is going after them.  It's suing 53 former officers for $1.6 million in breach of contract.

The office of City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo (left) says it will work with the officers to arrange a payback that doesn't bankrupt them, but the officers' lawyer says it's a breach of the Fair Labor Standards Act to get money back from former employees.  (Photo: Delgadillo City Attorney Website).
