  • Chief Beck and LAPD Motocross Team

    So I recently learn that Chief Charlie Beck has trail dirt in his veins, and LOVES the Dirt Bikes!

    Also, former pro motocross champ Damon Huffman recently graduated LAPD Academy.

    ...that's kinda cool! Anyone know anymore about LAPD's Motocross Militia??

    kind of off topic but since I love to hijack threads... I raced BMX as a youth and when I went through OCSD's bike patrol school Deputy Stu Thompson the ex BMX pro rider was our instructor. It was a blast to get to ride with Stu.

      I remember Stu Thompson, I think he was with Team Murray BMX back in the 80's?

      Dave "Flash" Gordon- former pro jet ski racer (one of the first professional/factory sponsored)also back in the 80's went on to become a police officer/harbor patrol. I believe he was with either Lake Havasu City PD, or San Bernardino Co. Sheriff?

            Was he riding on Z-Rims???

            Redline would be correct. Don't know about Murray. He was also with Huffy.

            Dang, what happened to Team Diamond Back?

            Good hijack!

                Chief is on the department team. There is also an off road enforcement unit that rides dirt bikes. The chief though having never worked motors has found a way to go on patrol with them....
                "For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer." Romans 13:4
