George O'Haire, Deputy Supervisor
of the Town of Oyster Bay,
and Democrat- Conservative candidate
for District Court Judge

Supreme Court that his Republican
opponent, Edward Poulos

Accident Injuries Must
Nassau Police Commissioner
Francis B. Looney reminded the
driving public of their obligation
under Section 600 of the New
York State Vehicle and Traffic
Law to make report to police
on all motor accidents which r e sult
in personal injury.
He also reminded drivers that
the Motor Vehicle Bureau must
be notified within ten days when
someone is injured or killed, or
when property damage exceeds
$ 150. Forms for reporting are
available at any police station or
Motor Vehicle Bureau office.
Accidents which do not involve
personal injury or death, and
which do not cause damage to the
property of any one person in excess
of $ 150 need not be reported
to the Motor Vehicle Bureau or
to a police agency.
Nassau Police Commissioner
Francis B. Looney, and Judge B.
Thomas Pantano, President of
the Board of Judges of District
Court, finalized plans for putting
into operation the new Verification
of Information procedure
which is expected to save more
than $ 100,000 a year in police
salaries, and 25,000 police- man
hours which is usually devoted
in misdemeanor arrests arraignment
The new Verification law was
passed by the State legislature
during the last session. Since
it became effective in June, a
pilot program has been operating
to develop a workable procedure
to implement the law.
Arresting officers under the
new law will no longer be r e quired
to appear in court for the
purpose of swearing to the Information
in non- felony arrest
cases. Now, the lieutenant, OT
desk officer in the precinct
( sergeant or higher rank), is
authorized to administer all
necessary oaths in connection
with the execution of the complaint.
The new Verification of Complaint
system will be in full
operation in Nassau's eight police
precincts on November 1.
