Park Police circa 1961

Did you know that the city parks had their own police department, complete with their own chief? Here’s a photo of Motorcycle Officer Vince Fusco of the City Park Police. In the early 1960’s the park police officers were able to join the regular police department and the park police dept. was phased out. Officer Fusco became a city police dispatcher until his retirement.
