First Memories of SRPD

When I start my trip down memory lane, some of my first memories of SRPD are of the people. I guess that's the way it is for most of us since outstanding people made SRPD what it was, and still is - a great police department!

Here are some of the first people I remember meeting at SRPD.

John Riordan
Jim Carlton
Matt Conlin
Don Merkley
Bob Marvin
Tom Stevenson
Joe Brusatori
Jay Fletcher
Bart Stinson
Carl Selby
Bob Wade
Ron Averiette
Joe Leonard
Link Borba
Roy Hendricks
Phil Green

I remember them because they were the Officers, Sergeants and Lieutenants that I first met and rode with as a Reserve Officer with SRPD while on swing and grave yard shifts. They influenced me in the begining of my career with the department and helped me survive those early days of 1966 though 1968.
