The annual 10-4 Day Parade, a salute to public safety officers featuring vintage police cars rolled through Hollywood early Thursday afternoon.
The annual parade in its ninth year began at the Los Angeles Fire Department Museum and concluded at the Walk of Fame star of Broderick Crawford where a ceremony was held.
Scheduled to take part in the parade were Larry Wilcox and other cast members of the 1977-83 NBC series CHiPS, Robert Pine, Paul Linke and Lou Waggoner; Councilman Tom LaBonge; KRTH-FM (101.1) disc jockey Shotgun Tom Kelly; and leaders of the California Highway Patrol, Los Angeles Police Department and Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
"This parade is good fun, but we also want to acknowledge our public safety officers and all they do to protect and serve the public," LaBonge said.
LaBonge added that next year, the parade will celebrate its tenth year and it will be the biggest celebration yet.
The ceremony was held at Crawford's star because of his starring role in the 1955-1959 syndicated television series Highway Patrol. Parade organizer Gary Goltz bills himself as the series' No. 1 fan, and owns a 1955 CHP Buick like the one used on Highway Patrol.
The parade was held on Thursday because its date on the calendar, 10-4, corresponds with the law enforcement radio code for "message understood."
