The 120-mile Baker to Vegas Challenge Cup Relay takes place on April 13-14, 2013 and involves more than 5,000 sworn police and military personnel, and over 20,000 volunteers from throughout the U.S. In 2012 the Long Beach Police Department’s (LBPD) relay team placed third in their category and 15th overall – up from finishing 33rd overall in 2011.
LBPD maintains a high standard of service to the Long Beach community. Officers place a tremendous emphasis on fitness and training to help them better perform their duties. In addition the original ideals of the Baker to Vegas Relay race continue: teamwork, camaraderie, physical fitness and competition.
