On Wednesday morning, Charlie Beck handed his chief’s badge and four-star pin to his successor, Michel Moore.

He returned his gun, which he had inherited from a police officer who was killed in Afghanistan, to the officer’s Los Angeles Police Department colleagues.

Beck then strode out of LAPD headquarters, greeted by rows of officers, including mounted patrols, who snapped to attention and saluted.

After shaking hands with Moore and his predecessor, former chief William J. Bratton, Beck climbed into a vintage black Pontiac GTO with the license plate “6T4 GTO,” gunned the engine and drove off to his farewell party at the Los Angeles Police Academy in Elysian Park.
