Will joined his father on the MSPD in 1956 . Will’s dad had been on the force since 1948 and retired in 1960. Will retired in 1988 and still lives in Miami Springs where he can regularly be seen at Cozy Corner or the Senior Center. If you see Will around town be sure to thank him for his 32 years of service to our beautiful city. John Kingsmore moved to Miami Springs from Tampa in 1954. He served first on the Miami Springs Fire Dept and transferred to the MSPD in 1955. He became a Metro Dade officer in 1960. He retired and moved to Orlando in 1970 where he passed away in 1988. This photo was taken by retired Miami Springs police officer Glenn Daily.
