Ponch and Jon are away in Sacramento teaching an ISTC seminar. Getraer announces that the District Commander has nominated them for the Sustained Superior Achievement Award, which only 3 CHP officers in the L.A. area have received in the last 7 years. Grossman announces that they want to throw a shin-dig for the guys if the Commissioner approves. Grossman describes it as "half party, half roast."
