This is an original graphite pencil drawing by retired Department of Justice
Agent Abel Reynoso. During the early 1980's, as an undercover officer
with the Los Angeles Police Department, I had the opportunity of working
alongside Abel in the narcotics bureau. We were also recruits in the same
class. Abel's a talented artist and an outstanding cop. Steve Polak

"The Los Angeles Police Academy was originally used as the shooting
competition site for the 1932 Olympic Games. Its history begun in 1936,
when it became the official site for LAPD training. Until 1995, thousands
of officers, including myself, graduated from here to join one of the
finest police departments in the world. Jack Webb, first with "Dragnet"
then with "ADAM 12" as well as many other police movies and
television shows, like TJ Hooker, made this site a Hollywood legend. The
Academy has a special place in my heart, as a recruit, I painted my first
of law enforcement mural here. Those paintings, representative of many
memories, still decorate the walls of this revered place."
