LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Lawrence officials are planning to review city policies after a scandal in which at least one police officer fixed speeding tickets in exchange for University of Kansas men's basketball tickets.
Police Chief Tarik Khatib says it's harder to fix tickets since his department started using electronic ticketing in 2006.
One police officer who was suspended resigned last month after the ticket-fixing issue was made public. City officials say the university official gave basketball tickets to the officer, who either dismissed or asked other officers to dismiss six tickets between 2000 and 2008.
The Lawrence Journal-World (http://bit.ly/wkwAiw) reports the city has said the person whose speeding tickets were dismissed is one of four Kansas Athletics Inc. employees in federal prison for their roles in a broader ticket scandal at the university.
