LA Motorcycle Officers celebrate 100-years!

In celebration of over 100 years of the Motorcycle unit, the Los Angeles Police Department held a two-day celebration at the Police Academy in Elysian Park. May 20, 1907: LAPD motorcycle officers arrest their first speeders. The speed limit downtown is 12 mph and 20 mph elsewhere. The speed limit at certain downtown intersections is 4 mph. According to Capt. Art Sjoquist?s ?History of the Los Angeles Police Department?, the LAPD acquired its first two motorcycles on Oct. 11, 1905. So maybe the group is a bit older than 100-years but who is counting ;)
