    I just realized some peopel may not want to click the link.... here you go..

    Detectives who need to park near courthouses now have to ask for permission if they want to use their unmarked cars, the Daily News has learned.

    The directive comes in the wake of revelations by The News that the NYPD has been towing unmarked cop cars, leaving detectives stranded with no way to transport suspects, witnesses or victims.

    The NYPD says the towing, carried out by traffic enforcement agents under the direction of the Internal Affairs Bureau, is necessary to prevent detectives from blocking hydrants and crosswalks and parking on sidewalks.

    The detectives union claims the towing is done to meet a quota and that even cars legally parked or just double-parked are being hauled off. An internal document obtained by The News shows that detectives must now "get authorization to park." A supervisor must call the Internal Affairs Bureau and inform the unit which detective needs to go to court and provide the car license and vehicle numbers.

    "Why doesn't Internal Affairs just sit in the back of our cars while we're working?" complained a veteran Brooklyn detective. "It's just not a practical way to do police work." The document also suggests that whenever possible, unmarked cars should not be used to drive to court.

    "Now we're going to use patrol cars?" asked another Brooklyn detective. "A lot of witnesses don't want to be seen in marked cars."

    The NYPD did not respond to a request for comment, and the Detectives' Endowment Association had no comment.

          I think every precinct should call IAB for EVERY arrest, court date, traffic court appearance, and every other stop that every officer makes. That rule will last for about two days.

                Yep, my GOV with GSA plates were never touched. But NYPD will tow one of their own without a second.

                  Obviously I never block hydrants, bus stops or driveways and I don't park in "no standing". Otherwise I just throw up the placard and pray that I don't end up spending all day trying to get my car released from impound. The tickets I can handle, but getting towed is a b%^tch.

                          That's crazy. Our unmarked units have placards you put on the dash to ID it as a city vehicle and not to tow.

                          For a while guys were parking units marked and unmarked in front of bus stops and the sheriffs would cite them but the gave plenty of warning before they started doing it.

                          We have recently had problems with guys parking in front of the court building in the red zone when a free parking structure owned by the county is available to police officers in POVs and city owned vehicles on the other side of the street. Central traffic motors are supposed to write down the lic plate or vehicle # and report it to the division the car belongs to. The officer who checked out the vehicle gets a memo to not do it again.

                          The city would never tow it's own vehicles, that's just silly.
