    Hill Street Blues, Hawaii 5-0, C.H.I.P.S., Adam-12, Cop Rock, SWAT, got nothing on Buick City PD. Haeger, Hicks, Champion, Peck and Raymond. Those were some hardened coppers.

  3. Oh My GAWD. Those bowties! Did Buick only hire retired Flint coppers. The dashing officer Peck looks like he could put a good beating on ya, but c'mon... Haeger? Hicks? Raymond? Champion? The average age of the BPD appears to be 75.

    1. Henry C Hicks was my father. He was 61 at the time the pic was taken. He retired in 1962. He was never a police officer. The only time they carried weapons and only for a short time was during World War Two.

    2. Thanks for filling us in on your father, Henry Hicks. I really loved these photos. Such a different era for Flint and the country.

    3. It was a different area completely. I was raised on West 4th Ave and Flint was a very safe city. I walked everywhere I needed to go. Also everyone who wanted a job had one. This Blog brings back so many memories. Thanks H C Hicks Jr

  4. Well, at least these pictures are labeled, and we don't need to research who they are, at least by name. Anyone know whether hey had revolvers or semiautomatics hidden in those bulky uniforms? Wouldn't want to mess with them, young or old, for that reason.

  5. Are these coppers quintuplets?

  6. My husband was plant security at AC for 20 years. No, they were not armed. One of Buick's plant security was found shot to death at the oak park booth :-(
