Seal Beach Police Department  1950-1954

It’s been far too long since we’ve posted anything from local historian Stan Berry.  One of Stan’s specialties is researching and preserving Seal Beach Police Department heritage, including these four group shots of the department assembled outside the old police station on Central Avenue.


1950-52 – Back row (left to right): Special Officer Fred Lochamy, Officer Gayler, Night Desk Sergeant Charles Irvine, Sergeant Paul Curtis
Front Row (left to right): Chief Lee Howard, Captain James Marousek, Officer Ray Harbour, Matron Grace Irvine, Officer Harold Walker

1950 – (left to right): Ray Harbour, Chief Lee Howard, H. Van Zandt, Fred Lochamy, Sergeant Paul Curtis

1953 – Back row (left to right): Fred Lochamy, William Dowdy, Charles Irvine, Ray Harbour, Farris Van Zandt, George Marshall, Grace Irvine (clerk)
Front Row (left to right): Chief Lee Howard, Captain Marousek, Sergeant Paul Curtis, John Demarest, Officers William Holeman and Harold Walker not in picture

1954 – Back row (left to right): Chief Lee Howard, Captain James Marousek, Officer Ray Harbour, Harold Walker, William Holeman, Thomas Terry, George Marshall
Front Row (left to right): Sergeant Paul Curtis, John Demarest, Grace Irvine (clerk & matron), William Dowdy, Fred Lochamy.   Farris Van Zandt (on vacation and not in picture).


Stan writes, “As a result of my research it is believed that Captain James Marousek and Chief Lee Howard had been with the department longer than any of the others depicted in these four photographs.  Captain Marousek started with the department in 1928 or 1929 and retired in 1958.  Chief Howard started with the department in 1932 and retired in 1959.”

As always, Stan, thank you for your hard work and generosity.

    Chief Lee Howard’s son, Larry, told me that his father never missed a day of work and never took a vacation.
