I smell a rat.

Definitely seems like the school police need to be thoroughly investigated

I have to wonder if there isn't some complicity in these high auto theft areas.

So no, this doesn't surprise me so much.

Got to feed the beast somehow. Beast ain't gonna feed itself. When I was growing up, my schools didn't need any freakin' law enforcement presence. Or ID cards.

Much too generous. If I had any say, it would be you have 90 minutes to arrange the return of all missing vehicles. They need to be back in the owners hands by the end of the day.

My guess is that somebody in the 'school police' (maybe Chief Cesar Molina) has a friend at that 'tow company' and they thought they could make a quick buck without getting caught....Somebody (or bodies) need to go to JAIL...

Towing and impounding tends to be less stand-up than your average red-light district or crack house.

Here in South Florida, Miami had to pay out millions and millions because they were impounding cars during misdemeanor arrests. They could only do that during felony arrests. For misdemeanor arrests, they were only supposed to tow a car if there was no reasonable alternative.

Laws have since changed, and the towing laws are more tightly regulated, but every so often, stuff pops up.

One tow company down here was ordered to immediately release hundreds of cars for free after they conducted predatory towing. They staked out a mall on a major holiday and towed cars that were parked at businesses in the mall that were not being shopped by the drivers of the vehicles. Thing is, they are not allowed to do this unless the business hosting the offending cars calls in the vehicle. Those idiots ended up doing a lot of free tows and processing.

DoubleWasp is absolutely correct. Towing companies in Florida are about the lowest,corrupt form of bussiness there is.
Special events and the beach side they steal cars and hold them for ransom for no reason.
I am pretty sure they are on cohorts with local police too because several times they towed cars from housing developments for expired tags that I have witnessed.
I find it a little suspicious that they can tow a non moving cars with expired tags and the police do nothing.

Isn't the fact that this Grand Jury Investigation is taking place evidence that there is accountability and oversight?

Assuming there is validity to the accusations, and there certainly appears to be, it is the fact this was not a Municipal or City PD (but a more autonomous School District PD) combined with its small size that they operated under the radar for a few years.

The Apple Valley Unified School District Police Department is composed of Chief Cesar Molina, five full-time police officers and six part-time reserve officers. In comparison, Fontana Unifiedís police department employs 64 officers, according to the grand jury report,

Unfortunately, the taxpayers will be stuck footing the bill and at most, the Chief and her staff will be dismissed.
