LAPD: Parker Center Cop Shop Files — Mystery Guest No. 1

Unidentified LAPD Officer No. 1
In case you just tuned in, I was given a box of material cleaned out of the press room at Parker Center that was crammed with photos, artist sketches, press releases and some tattered maps. I have organized the material to get a better understanding of what is there and I’m posting selections weekly.

Here we have our first LAPD mystery guest. This gentleman had his portrait taken, above, and appeared with another mystery gent during what is apparently a presentation. Based on the clothing style and the other material with which the photos were found, I would say these pictures were taken in the 1970s.

    Good guess on the era, fortunately, the wide lapels and later the polyester pants didn’t last long. Your mystery guest has the looks of a movie personality but he must have been attending a law enforcement press conference? Can’t wait to find out who both of those guys were.

    Though it probably is not, he looks much like David Brian, who played ‘Mr. District Attorney’.

    Lt. JOHN KAUZOR, LAPD, late 1940s to late ’70s.
