nessa, who's "version" of the law do you want?? the local cops who like to protect their cousins, etc and make up local rules as needed? Or the repomans version??I NEVER call in unless I have something to call about. And when they want me to stop by so they can get a copy of the paperwork, I ask for their fax # and tell 'em I'll fax it when I get to the ofice. Seems like I NEVER get back to the office. I don't see local PDs needing copies of CIVIL paperwork. Good Luck and BE SAFE

in Massachusetts state law chapt 255 sec 13j it states " any secured creditor obtaining possession of a motor vehicle under the provisions of this section shall,within one hour after obtaining such possession, notify the police department of the city or town in which such possession occured, giving such police department a description of the vehicle involved." but this is in mass not Texas.. i wonder what happens if they fail to notify the police department. get away with it I'm sure... slimeballs
