January 30, 2014

Los Angeles:  Beginning this Saturday, February 1, 2014, the Los Angeles Police Commission Investigation Division will enforce the valet ordinance.  It is imperative that all valet companies operating within the City of Los Angeles obtain all necessary Police Commission permits.  Unpermitted businesses may be subject to the following: citation, arrest, or criminal charges filed with the City Attorney and civil sanctions of up to $2,500 per violation per day.

On November 14, 2013 the Los Angeles City Council enacted a valet ordinance, Sections 103.203 (b) and 103.203.1 (b) of the Los Angeles Municipal Code.  Since then, Police Commission staff conducted several community outreach meetings to advise business owners of the new ordinance.  Additionally, Police Commission Permit Processing Section conducted numerous permit application classes for valet companies and attendants.

Business owners interested in applying for a valet permit may contact the Police Commission Permit Processing Section at 213-996-1210.  Members of the public can report violations or complaints pertaining to valet companies by calling the valet hotline at 323-929-2568.
