Randall Torno was an Associate Producer from Seasons 3 through 6) "I worked on every single episode in that time period including supervising the editing and sound mix and final versions of the episode."

Mr. Torno is currently Vice President of Production at Republic Pictures in Los Angeles where he has been since the late 80's. He worked on features such as RoboWarriors - a huge epic sci-fi movie which should be available at your local video store. (He worked under the pseudonym "Lucas George".) He is a part of Spelling Entertainment, so he's still loosely associated with TV.

Asked by "CHiPs" Online about working on the show, he said it "was like being part of a big family for all those years. Contrary to some peoples opinions I thought Erik was a terrific guy and we had a great relationship. Larry could be a bit testy sometimes, but that's actors for you. The rest of the cast, especially Robert Pine, were totally pros. The worst part of working there was trying to get Erik and Larry to re-record their lines in time to get the shows on the air. This was always necessary because we shot the shows out on the streets and they were always full of noise."
