    Didn't CA just change the law to cut down on the number of license suspension due to tickets?

    I'm also amazed at how many people are driving around without valid licenses, insurance, or valid vehicle registration.

    Seems like a few weeks ago, maybe less, I remember at one location the cop was telling the people they were questioning something like 'look, you're on live tv'. That seemed so profoundly unprofessional. I don't remember the location, however.

    I miss some of the others we don't see anymore, like James Casey and Poole, in AZ. My favs are Lawrence and Mastrianni in SC, and Leverett, and Loeb. Looking forward to her being in studio next week.

    What gets me is the "if you just have suspended license will write you a ticket and you will be on your way (driving)" at many locations, doesn't work that way here. I'm also looking forward to Loeb's appearance.

    I am amazed at the number of stops that Sgt. Leverett does in a hour.

    Or how many times he asks the same question over and over...each time saying Itll be his last time and they better tell him the truth.

    Yeah sometimes it is interesting to watch him go through that whole routine, but then other times it gets annoying. Often times I feel that he gets borderline demeaning to the people he pulls over with his complex routines and commands he issues.

    Also given your usernames perhaps you can answer this, what was up with that fire that the sheriff's department responded to in I think it was Indiana? First the sheriffs are running all around the outside the building opening the doors and stuff (which I thought was dangerous because it would introduce oxygen to the fire) and then they go help that lady get her dog. Wouldn't the firefighters, who were already wearing the breathing apparatus already have swept the building?

    Yeah, I don't get that either. Everywhere I've ever lived you can only drive with a valid driver's license AND it must be there in the vehicle with you, too. I thought that was driver's license 101 stuff. I've never known any different from the first day I was licensed.

    He still irks me especially when a few weeks back, he chewed a guy who was off by 1 year on his birthday. I mean, he kept going on and on about it. It was annoying.

    Not a firefighter. Brother in law is, username is in reference to his class in 2003.

    Ron can correct us and I"ve seen in other fires on this show, the police will help with checking the area (like the older lady who left the scene and left her dog) while the firefighters focus on knocking down the flames.

    If that's the segment I'm thinking of, that one kind of annoyed me as well. He was giving no end of grief to the guy because he couldn't instantaneously remember how old he was. I was sitting there thinking, "Duh, neither can I most days!" I usually have to sit there for a few minutes to do the math to figure it out.

    (That said, as I realize I'm less than a year from turning 40, it's much easier for me to remember now.)

    Yeah that's why I hated Leveret at first too, at some point I started to enoy watching him.

    I'm sure that job can quickly make you cynical like that with people constantly lying to you.

    Are you 32 or 33?...I remember, if I was 32...I never forget my year.

    Yes, he was annoying as heck with that segment. Who lies and gives the correct month and day?

    Hell, I'm 32 and I'm so used to saying 30 that I have to do the math.

    I didnt see the episode, but the police should not be opening doors or windows of a building on fire.
    We call that a copalogical factor in how bad a scene is...
    Its also why we always say the police really wanted to be fire fighters but couldnt pass the test

    I think the audio work on this show is amazing.

    What I want to know is how they can completely "duck" the audio from the suspect when they're giving personal identification information, while still keeping the officer's audio perfectly audible. I can only suspect that the officers have very close field body-worn microphones, combined with some sort of a shotgun or parabolic mic for the rest of the audio, and they're just muting the one microphone. Even then, I'd think the body worn mic on the officer would pick up on some field audio.

    Is anybody else experiencing this - Live PD used to have 'skip' but for quite a few weeks now there is no skip. It's not the end of the world, but it's annoying. I really miss it and hope it comes back.

    I still think she's a cutie but Rebecca Loeb looks cuter in uniform than she does in the studio.

    I don’t know, but there’s still suspensions for being uninsured during an accident and for DUI. CA also suspends men’s licenses for failure to pay child support.
