Yep, I raced at San Fernando in the Valley and Lions, Orange County, Fontana, Carslbad and others including out of State. Was fun then, now money controls it and if you ain't got it you can't go fast enough.

Currently, the LAPD has approximately 9,000 sworn officers and 3,000 civilian employees. That is one officer for every 433 residents, giving Los Angeles one of the lowest ratios of police officers to residents of any major city in the country.

Not all 9000 officers are on patrol at the same time.
