The reasons the cruiser is positioned in this manner is for priority response. Should a 9-1-1 call come in and they often do the officer needs to get in and go. A fellow officer or citizen's life may depend on it. They need not be distracted by having to back out of a parking space or maneuver from being blocked in when he/she needs to be somewhere very quick. Examples include a missing child, serious vehicle accidents or an armed shooter. It is a high responsibility with the position of preventing and saving lives and that is why police are afforded this exemption to park for quick access.

Ok, so if its such a high priority incedent, then why is there only one cop sent to respond? Hell, they send 2 crusiers for speeding tickets. And still no good reason for why not just parking next to the curb like a normal person, as though he was paralell parking. Now befor you say, that would have taken 10 mins to parallel park, there are no cars on front or behind. He would have only needed to pull up.

And it's not possible for him to back into a legal space in order to allow this?

While your theory sounds good, it fails to convince. If it were true than ALL police would ALWAYS park like that. But they don't. They OFTEN park nose in in spaces and in other areas that are not 'quick exit' places.

Additionally, many schools and shopping centers have specially marked spaces exclusive for the police. There is no reason for this car to have been left like this except laziness on the officer's part. If it had been an emergency, he wouldn't have even parked on the curb, the car would have been pulled up to the curb and left in the fire lane.

Plate and time helps the judge??

You are an idiot. A judge doesn't "issue" a summons against anyone. A magistrate would have to do that. AND even if you took a picture and brought that with all the vehicle and location info a magistrate is NEVER going to issue a summons to the officer who parked in front of/on a curb/fire lane.

A police car is parked directly in front of facilities for the following reasons:
-High visibility. A crime deterrent.
-QUICK access. If a high priority call comes out a cop shouldn't have to run to the end of fair oaks parking lot to get in their cruiser.
-EASY access. If an officer is arresting someone inside of said facility, it would not be prudent to walk an arrested subject to the end of a parking lot in between citizen vehicles. Not to mention the morons that park over the line and make it impossible for you to open your door. Hey Mr.Arrested Guy, stand here for a minute while I crawl over the center console and back my car outta this space so you can get in.

Keep in mind if a fire truck was called to the same building a cop car is parked in front of, the officer would know on their radio and could move their vehicle if it really was an issue.

It seems people have nothing better to do than complain about cops on this website. Although it is always entertaining.

OMG there was a cop at dunkin donuts this morning! How would you know there was a cop getting a donut and a cup of coffee if YOU weren't there yourself. You all are ridiculous.

I saw a cop doing this a few days back on Stone Rd. He was parked half on the sidewalk, half on the mulch next to some bushes. Seriously, can't you run a speed trap at the next street up the road where every other cop sits with a radar gun?

This is Officer Munos of Westfield High School. I park on the curb all the time, even though i have my own spot near the parking lot's exit, but what if there was a serious emergency i would actually have to run 20 yards! That is a lot by fatass cop standards, and why would my lazy ass make an exception? I drive over the curb to hop into the student lot to harass kids leaving for lunch, why would I wait for traffic to go into the next lot? That is a waste of my time and energy, even though it's the law, or am I? Well regardless cops do not need to follow safety regulations even if the fire department set the standard, cops are above anyone, we can arrest you whenever we feel, therefore you cannot badmouth us.

So....I suppose when there is an emergency and the officer that is driving that "illegally parked cruiser" has to respond back to his cruiser and respond to your emergency, you'd be ok that it will take him longer to go out in to the parking lot and get his cruiser so he can respond to your emergency?

Or....will you be the one that bitches and complains that it took him soooo long?

I'd love to be the officer that gets to explain that to one of you complaining whinning babies.

Get over it. State law permittes them to park where others are not permitted so they can have quick access to their cruisers when need be....not just because they are there on an emergency call but also in the event they need to respond to an emergency call.

Would you want the officers responding to your emergency to have to park his cruiser further away than necassary if he's the one that has to respond to your emergency????????? UFB!

When the car parked thusly, the donut box can easily slide from the passengers side to within the driver grasp. This enables the officer to text and talk on the cell phone while reaching for his beloved donut.

Everyone hates the police until you need them...get over yourselves. Are we so traumatized by a cop parking on the sidewalk? I mean who really cares? If he was out giving you a speeding ticket, you'd be bitching about the police because they're not out there fighting "real crime." But when you or your kid get hits by a speeding car, you'll bitch "where were the police when this maniac speeder killed my child." They have a thankless job and deal with douchebags, tragedy and bullshit every day...all in the name of protecting your hypocritical ass. Sure, there are some assholes in uniform, but there are assholes in every profession and every walk of life.

I'd never bitch if a speeder ran over my kid. I wouldn't have to worry about it though, because my kids would know not to play in the street. The street is not a fucking playground and drivers should not have to watch out for children playing in the street, regardless of what speed they are going

looking at that law it certainly doesn't say they can park on curbs or in fire lanes for no good reason. as far as i can see the relevant parts are

§ 46.2-920. Certain vehicles exempt from regulations in certain situations; exceptions and additional requirements.

A. The driver of any emergency vehicle, when such vehicle is being used in the performance of public services, and when such vehicle is operated under emergency conditions, may, without subjecting himself to criminal prosecution:

A3. Park or stop notwithstanding the other provisions of this chapter;

B. The exemptions granted to emergency vehicles by subsection A in subdivisions A1, A3, A4, A5, and A6 shall apply only when the operator of such vehicle displays a flashing, blinking, or alternating emergency light or lights as provided in §§ 46.2-1022 and 46.2-1023 and sounds a siren, exhaust whistle, or air horn designed to give automatically intermittent signals, as may be reasonably necessary........Such exemptions shall not, however, protect the operator of any such vehicle from criminal prosecution for conduct constituting reckless disregard of the safety of persons and property. Nothing in this section shall release the operator of any such vehicle from civil liability for failure to use reasonable care in such operation.

C.For the purposes of this section, the term "emergency vehicle" shall mean:

1. Any law-enforcement vehicle operated by or under the direction of a federal, state, or local law-enforcement officer (i) in the chase or apprehension of violators of the law or persons charged with or suspected of any such violation or (ii) in response to an emergency call;

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So if the cop car was being used in a public service AND being used currently to apprehend a suspect or in response to an emergency call, and had properly displayed emergency lights, and sounds an intermittent siren if reasonably necessary, then yes it would be legal to park in this manner.

It doesn't appear that all those criteria are met, even IF it was in response to an emergency call.

Just my 2 cents, I really don't care if a cop parks like that, at least they aren't in my way.

Sooooooooooooo, the police car is there to pick up a lovely shoplifter. The car is parked right outside the door so that the officer doesn't have to drag the suspect through the mall.

Fuckin FCPD think they are "on the job" as if they were in South Central instead of white bread Fairfax County. Thats why they end up shooting and killing a poor bookie on a routine search warrant presentation; they over react!! they would piss their pants if they had to patrol DC or PG County.

yeah, nothing bad ever happens in ivory tower fairfax county right? the reason you think the stupid shit you do is because the FCPD keeps this place clean quietly enough that you don't always hear about it (at least not right away, if at all).
