cialis times; font-size: 16px;”>On June 4 & 5, click 2014, pills Officers assigned to the Simi Valley Police Department’s Motor Unit participated at the Pasadena Police Motor Skills Competition at the Pasadena Rose Bowl. The first day consisted of a Motor Officer refresher course that covered basic and advanced motor officer skills and collision avoidance training.

On the second day, nearly 200 Southern California Motor Officers competed against each other on a variety of skills courses. The competition was open to all full-time sworn Law Enforcement Officers who are authorized/certified to operate a police motorcycle for their respective departments.

During the competition, the Simi Valley Police Motor Officers entered the following events:

Individual Obstacle Course: A timed, single rider course, where the rider attempts to establish their fastest time through a set of cones without incurring penalties.

Team Obstacle Course: A timed, four rider (team) course, where the riders attempt to establish the fastest time through a set of cones.

Fuzz Ball Relay Course: A timed team event consisting of four riders per team. Each team member collects a tennis ball from the top of a cone, rides a measured distance, places the tennis ball on top of another cone, continues and makes a U-turn around a cone, collect the tennis ball again, riding back and placing it back on top of the first cone, continuing to start/finish line where the next rider will begin their leg of the event.

Paired Rider Course: A timed, two rider course, where the riders attempt to negotiate an obstacle course while their motorcycles are tethered together.

Top Gun: This event is a head-to-head, single elimination, two rider competition. Riders will engage in a follow the leader competition in hopes of their competition committing a penalty. Last rider standing was declared the winner.

When the two exhausting days were done the Simi Valley Police Motor Officers had finished very high in two of the events. Officers Bowman, Hampson, and VanFleet along with Officer Johnson from the National City Police Department won Second Place in the Four Officer Team Obstacle Course. Officer Hampson won Fourth Place in the Top Gun Competition against 40 other competitors. Impressive to say the least. The skills that these Motor Officers displayed during this two day training and competition event are only obtainable by those who are the best of the best in this unique field.
