The Baker to Vegas Relay is the most “positive” event offered to law enforcement officers today. It gives them a reason to maintain a physical fitness program so as to help them better perform their duties. Over the 20+ years the Challenge Cup/Baker to Vegas Relay has been run hundreds of thousands law enforcement personnel have tread across the desert. The original ideals of the race continue: teamwork, camaraderie, physical fitness and competition. The event has expanded in many ways — most notably in entries and categories.
The number of teams has grown 14 fold from the first 19 teams in 1985. The number of teams is now limited to 270. Categories have grown to include Probation Officers, District Attorneys, US Attorneys and full time civilian police personnel.
As a result of this growth the race has flourished. Today it is the largest law enforcement event of its kind in the World with teams participating from Calgary Canada, RCMP both men and women, Berlin and Hamburg Germany and law enforcement teams throughout the United States. The Challenge Cup/Baker to Vegas Relay is truly a National and International event.

The ID Card Machine that prints out the Police ID cards is now up and running. There are a few quirks that still have to be worked out. The new ID will have your date of last qualification, which will also serve as the expiration date of your ID card, and your date of birth per CA Penal Code 12027 (a)(1)(D), however the 5-year expiration date (PC 25465) is in question and is being addressed. Also there is a question regarding the annual qualification. Per HR-218 if a retiree desires to carry concealed in other states they must possess evidence of completing an annual qualification. Per 25475 the only peace officer that is required to qualify annually are officers listed in 830.5PC. Things are in the process of being ironed out an update will be forthcoming

About 200 were in attendance ranging from MPOA members, their families and MPD retirees. It was a great success and look forward to yet another in 2013.
