Walter Monroe Acord (1892-1966), son of John Columbus Acord and Ida Ellen Heath, joined the Oklahoma City Mounted Police in 1919. Mounted on horses, in full dress uniform, these police patrolled the downtown area of the city at night. Wife Elsie said "The Mayor's idea looked good, but was very impractical. Imagine, a policeman clomp-clomping the streets, warning of his approach so he could be shot down at will, allowing the burglar to continue his business unmolested." Walter served in the Detective Bureau many years, mostly in the Narcotics Division. He was captain of the Vice Squad for 5 years. He had many newspaper clippings and pictures of his liquor raids during Prohibition days. He was with the Highway Patrol almost 7 years before he retired in 1959
