Description

A pair of handcuffs and key from the Orlando Police Department (OPD). These items are featured in one of the Orlando Remembered exhibits at the Orlando City Hall, located at 400 South Orange Avenue in Downtown Orlando, Florida. The handcuffs were a gift of Bob Chewning, who became the OPD's Chief of Police in 1967. These handcuffs were used sometime between 1946, when Chewning became a beat officer in 1946, and 1976, when he retired. During the 1950s, the OPD and Orlando City Jail were located on the west side of North Orange Avenue, between East Jackson Street and East South Street.
