Ponch With Teen-Age CHP's
15 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Brat Patrol,Ponch injures his arm and gets assigned to looking after the teenage CHP Explorers.

Ponch and Bobby chase after car radio thieves and Ponch takes a big spill over a car and into a van. At the hospital, Bobby is pretty worried about Ponch but he comes out with just a broken left arm. Two weeks later, he is given a light duty with the CHP Explorers or the Brat Patrol. Ponch meets the rag-tag group of kids. Later on, the Brat Patrol spots guys breaking into cars. Ponch and Bobby make the bust.

Also in this episode,Bruce and Kathy try to catch a drug dealer and were able to bust him.

The presence of teen-agers as CHP Explorers or Brat Patrol makes the show worth the watch especially when they help Ponch and Bobby bust a carnapper.Also,we get to see how kids can get involved in law enforcement in society.
