Captain Police A. W., Adelbert Wilson, 14k gold badge.   On May 30, 1870 Adelbert Wilson joined the Oakland PD.   On May 7, 1889, he was made captain, and for over sixteen years held that important position, being on December 20, 1905, appointed chief of police. Although different political administrations came and went, Mr. Wilson was retained as chief, which title was changed to that of superintendent of police, but under the new charter was again changed to chief. There is great credit due him for what he has achieved, for he rose from the ranks and by the faithful and fearless performance of duty and because of his natural ability became the head of the department.
