Briefing Hot sheet info, Ponch and Jon nominated for an award, Grossman in charge of recording testimonials
Title Screen

While Ponch and Jon are in Sacramento teaching a seminar, Grossman collects anecdotes about the team from other officers so that - win or lose - they can give them a party.


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." Grossman interviews various CHP officers who recall their favorite Ponch and Jon story. At the conclusion of briefing, a number of officers surround Grossman; Baricza and Fritz offer ideas.
