Trivia?

For a free recruiting T-Shirt, what year was this photo taken of the "then" brand new police officer graduating from the police academy? For a bonus gift, who is the officer receiving the badge, and who is the Chief of Police pinning the badge on the officer? Fellow officers, please do not reply.

Cadets, applicant's and fans of the blog, the first one to comment in the comment section will win the shirt and the bonus gift. Please leave your email address in the comment section. I will not post the comments until Monday, so the suspense will fester as to who answered first.

Good Luck.

The Chief of Police is Lee P. Brown, the Police Officer being pinned is Officer McCoy and it had to be between 1982-1990.

Im about to take a HUGELY wild guess. That is former chief and also former mayor Lee P Brown. He was chief from 1982-1990. Looking at your uniform according to your stripes you have been with HPD for in the neighborhood of 25 years which is also around when this pic was taken. So im going to take a guess that that is you officer Mccoy.

I know the chief of police was then Chief Lee P. Brown. He was my neighbor for so many years. The youngster getting badged looks like a young Sr. Officer McCoy. 1983 would be the year.

yankeegrey186@sbcglobal.net got it exactly right. It was 1982 (December). Lee P. Brown was the Chief of Police at the time. He was pinning the badge on a 19 year old kid(me). Look for your goodies in the mail. I will post another trivia question later this week. Thanks for the blog support everyone.

Man, if you'd just let cops play, I could have nailed that one!

Heck, I can come up with the exact date, time, your class ranking, and size of the hat you were wearing!

I really want that T-shirt!

That's why you are not allowed LT! Look for an item in the inner office mail sir.
