Los Angeles Floats Using Unarmed Civilians To Enforce Traffic Violations

The city of Los Angeles could soon recommend using unarmed civilians to enforce traffic violations instead of the Los Angeles Police Department, according to a document obtained by the L.A. Times.
“Most traffic enforcement in Los Angeles should be done by civilian workers, but only in tandem with major infrastructure upgrades that improve safety along city streets that are among the nation’s deadliest,” the Times reported of the city’s unreleased report.
The plan is based on conclusions from a three-year-study conducted by an outside firm for the city council, the Times explained.
