Photograph caption dated November 14, 1961 reads, "Burbank motorcycle policemen don civilian clothes as they go through their monthly session of in-service training at Lockheed Air Terminal. An officer will take a spill occasionally and have to stop to pick up his motorcycle, which has been specially tuned up for him. The men travel across a rickety seesaw, testing their balance and coordination and go through a series of rigorous dirt jumps. Exhausted at the end of the four-hour training session, the officers feel it's about time to take a break."; See images #00108675 through #00108679 for all photos in this series.
