L.A. policing gets a French twist for the Golden Globes

Even by Los Angeles standards -- where dignitaries' motorcades barely attract attention -- Monday's police escort down Pacific Coast Highway was a traffic-stopper.

Lights flashing and motors roaring, 15 Los Angeles-area motorcycle officers were escorting 32 French motorcycle cops to lunch.

The French officers are in the area for a 10-day training program with police, sheriff's deputies and the California Highway Patrol that will include security work at next week's Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills.
