This is a photograph of the members of the Salina Police Department in Salina, Kansas. The Salina Police Department was established in 1920 and originally consisted of an assistant chief, two desk sergeants, one plainclothesman, one traffic officer, and four patrolmen. One of the sergeants pictured is Guy Whiteford (misspelled on the photograph). He and his family, wife Mabel and son Jay Dee, were prominent among amateur archeologists in central Kansas. This family is most widely known for their involvement in the excavation and early operation of the Indian Burial Pit or Salina Burial Pit, also known as the Whiteford site (14SA1).
