City News Service

Lou Ferrigno, the former Mr. Universe and star of "The Incredible Hulk" television series, will be sworn in tonight as a Los Angeles County reserve deputy sheriff.

The 53-year-old Ferrigno will graduate as a member of Sheriff's Reserve Academy class 105. He started training in September and will be required to serve at least 20 hours per month.

"Lou Ferrigno was an outstanding trainee and I know that he'll be an outstanding reserve deputy sheriff," said Sheriff Lee Baca. "Reserve deputies serve without compensation, receiving only the great satisfaction of being of service to their community."

Baca said Ferrigno would help recruit new reserve deputy sheriffs. The sheriff's office announced that Ferrigno was also interested in working with the Sheriff's Youth Activities League and the Special Victims Unit, which works with abused children.

Aside from the popular television series, Ferrigno appeared in many other films and TV shows and was a world renowned body-builder. He was just 21 when he won his first Mr. Universe title and broke records by winning again when he was 22.

Ferrigno later founded a personal training business and wrote a book about fitness and body-building.

L.A. County S.O. and even LAPD has a program to get celebs involved in local LE for a number of years now. Good for him.

Interesting.

So that means he now has Concealed Carry rights in CA correct ? That's a good benefit out there.

I understood that he had a hearing impairment.

How does that work with being a reserve officer?

i thought he was legally deaf-

According to the article, he will work mostly in recruiting and working with kids, so doubt he'll do much patrol work. Hearing probably won't be much of an issue for him.

Yeah,usually when someone enters into the elite ranks of Mr. Universe and all the other professional body building events,they don't stop working out . I'm not sure if he competes anymore. I'm sure he could still go to muscle beach and not feel out of place. Even if he wasn't famous.

Yep he has a bad hearing problem and that translates into a speech impediment like most other deaf people. He talks badly and prefers to have dinner by himself....yep I asked him to eat with me and recieved a no. Very nice and polite but that guy is big....

I give him credit for wanting to do something for his community without being paid for it. Good for him. Not like I'd want him walking up to my truck and ripping the door off.
