LAPD paying too much in overtime

Jason Kandel of the Los Angeles Daily News reports that overtime pay for Los Angeles police officers has increased almost 150 percent in the past decade. According to department records, the LAPD has spent more than its allotted overtime budget by an average of nearly $6 million a year since 2002-03. The report comes on the heels of Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announcement last week that the city could face as much as a $400 million budget shortfall. For the story, Kandel analyzed 10 years of Los Angeles Police Department overtime figures.
