The Dickey Foundation Honors Retiring Long-Standing Police Chief

On Wednesday, June 27 The Dickey Foundation will honor Chief of Police Charlie Beck, who served his community as the leader of the Los Angeles Police Department for more than 40 years.

The Dickey Foundation, in conjunction with Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, will be donating slow-smoked barbecue for the open-house event celebrating Chief Beck.  This event will be held at the Los Angeles Police Department Academy to encourage the community and its 1,000 expected attendees to join in celebration of their long-standing civic leader.

The Woodland Hills Dickey’s Pit Boss, Barry Thomas, said that catering this retirement event for Chief Beck was, “a natural fit, as The Dickey Foundation has always been a proud supporter of the officers who serve their community.”

Maurine Dickey, founder of the Dickey Foundation, said, “The Dickey Foundation is proud to support community leaders such as Chief Beck whose commitment to protecting his community is inspiring to everyone here at The Dickey Foundation and Dickey’s Barbecue Pit; we’re honored to play a role in his momentous celebration.”

Since 1941, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has taken great pride in our Texas style barbecue and our commitment to the communities we serve. It is in that spirit, that The Dickey Foundation was created. The Dickey Foundation supports first responders who protect and unite our communities. Our Foundation is national but our efforts are intensely local, focusing on financial support, public education and providing the equipment necessary for the safety of our first responders.
