As a career journalist and EJ advocate, I see community-based media like the Alhambra Source as crucial to democracy and equality.

Chris Olson

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Adele Andrade Stadler, Alhambra City Council Member

The Source is a great independent newspaper that celebrates the communities and is not afraid to ask the tough questions!

Alhambra Source and the Alhambra Police Department launched an initiative to engage more minority residents in the community. As part of this project, we re-launched our "Ask an Alhambra cop" column with Capt. Clifford Mar. Got a question? Send it to [email protected]!

I bought a retired police cruiser. Can I drive it? Do I need to do anything besides registering it with the DMV?

Yes, you can drive it on the street as long as the vehicle is legally registered and meets all the California Vehicle Code requirements, similar to any other car on the highway.

Usually, used police cars have had their markings or emergency equipment removed and are no longer a two-tone black and white car. If you buy the car with any of these markings or equipment still in place, make sure to remove them so the vehicle cannot be confused for a police car.

Alhambra Source y la Policía de Alhambra están empezando una iniciativa para involucrar a más residentes de la minoría en la comunidad. Como parte de este nuevo proyecto, estamos relanzando nuestro "Pregunte a un cop Alhambra" columna con el Capitan Clifford Mar. ¿Tienes una pregunta?

Compre una patrulla de policia ya retirada. ¿Puedo manejarla? Necesito hacer algo más aparte de registrarla con el Departamento de Vehículos y Motores (DMV)?

Si, puedes manejarla siempre que el vehículo este legalmente registrado y llene todos los requisitos del Código Vehicular de California, al igual que cualquier otro vehículo en la carretera.

Usualmente, a los coches usados de policia, se les han quitado toda marca y equipo policial y han dejado de ser coche blanco y negro (dos tonos).  Si compra usted un coche con estas marcas o equipo todavía en él, asegure quitar todo para que el vehículo no sea confundido por una patrulla policiaca.
