Sherwood Police Chief Eugene O. Hatcher

videoHe was not one to mess with. This clip is from a very long interview we did with him and his wife when they turned up at Rebekah Hall Coffee Hour last Saturday.

As late as 1962 Old Sherwood Town was still being patrolled the way it was in the 1890s, by one incredibly brave man and (perhaps) a deputy. Captain Hatcher hasn't met our current Chief, but he expressed great admiration for former Chief Middleton.

He had two deputies. Lyle Urlich (better known as "Peanuts") and Burl Adams were called in to help when the work day turned into more than ten hours, such as a Robin Hood Festival.
