Cottonwood City Manager Doug Bartosh was in the company of a small exclusive club this past weekend. He was among four living former Scottsdale Police Chiefs. The Police Department celebrated its 50th anniversary last weekend. The city incorporated in 1951. Law was administered by a Marshal until the department was formed 12-years later in 1963.
Among the entertainment was Arizona's Official Historian Marshall Trimble who spoke of Scottsdale's first homicides.
Bartosh says that former Chief Fred Collins is now a resident of Sedona
