Wichita Police Photos I had hanging around. My how the times have
Photo taken sometime in 1974 at Linwood Park (1901 S Kansas St).
These two Wichita Police Officers (Ed Burnett, left & Jerry Burnett, right) each have a revolver, handcuffs and stop watches. I presume the baton and flashlights are in the car. Back before the days of MCT's, body armor, Tasers and all the other nifty gadgets.
The patrol car is a Dodge Coronet, 5th generation 1971 - 1973 model. The lightbar is a Federal Signal Visibar with twin red beacons.
Over the years the equipment and technology have changed but it's still the same job. I have the highest respect for those that do it.
If anyone else has any pictures of WPD from a while back I would love
to see them. I'm very interested in any photos of Black & White
WPD cars from the past.
Feel free to add our own notes & comments.
