TGT!

This photo is from the early 1960's. We had to reach out to some retirees for identification purposes.

Unfortunately, no one knows whom the man in the middle is but the other two were identified. The man on the left is SPD Captain Dan Spelman and the man on the right is Captain of Detectives, Charlie Francis.

We are told that the picture was taken in the old SPD jail lock up area when it was located on 5th street and Ash.

We do not know the significance of the photo but feel free to speculate. It was certainly a simpler time...

Thanks to Mrs. LaVonne Woody and Chief Darrel Wilson for identifying the two captains and location.

Charlie Francis was my uncle.

It's not Don Spohn

Spohn, I mis-spelled his last name.

It has been a long time but he may be Don Sphon, he was a detective. My dad was C.F "Sully" Leiker who was a desk sargent who later in 1961 was elected as Marshall of the Magistrate Court for Judge Lou Tickel and Judge Gene Penland.

Thank our officers for being the best they can be. Have a safe 2019 and know there really are more people out here who respect you!

Walk? Isn't that "public Intoxication"? Asking for a friend HAHA

That's no s*** use some common sense

Being street smart doesn’t require an education.

Alcohol will destroy friendships and peoples lives. Drink responsibly. Uber all the way

Personally I do not drink alcohol so try and call people if you need a sober ride.

Funny how CHRISTmas has become commercialized, the more we spend the happier we will be 😂 and now New Years is all about getting drunk and bringing in the new year with a hangover sounds...exciting🤣🤢🤮🤮 I'll see you all well refreshed since we still go to bed before 9pm even on the holidays and summers!!!
