IRVING COPS -
OTHER COP WALKS
The special patrol doesn't write tickets, but they're
well acquainted with those who can,
It's a kind of banner day for a special group of emp-
loyes of the Irving police department -- they're in
their brand new uniforms, just like the ones worn by
the department regulars. Mrs. Christine Keahey is one
of five Irving women who watch out for schoolage young-
sters at busy intersections where the schoolers must
travel on their way to classes. The intersection at
hand is Sixth and Perch Hill. Ordinarily, the women
command the crossings several blocks from the schools,
leaving the ones closer-in to regular police -- but the
ladies are fully empowered tb enforce the traffic laws
Mrs. Keahey is the mother of four children and is just
bit enthusiastic about her new job. To quote
Mrs. Keahey: "There's not one of us who hasn't lost
weight -- I weighed 115 when I started, and now I'm
down to 107."
