1973

Chief Devaney implemented many programs during his tenure and oversaw the transition when the department became integrated in 1973 and also hired its first female police officer. He started the departmentís Narcotics and Crime Suppression Units, Juvenile Unit, Marine Patrol and the Police Explorers Post. In an effort to patrol more area he put officers on small Honda motorcycles instead of walking beats.
