YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE AN OLD TIMER SANPEDRANO IF
You happen to know these police officers:  P C Massam, P C Hope, P C Sambula, P C Fuller, P C Smith, P C Sutherland and P C Orio. You not only know them, but you respected them and appreciate their contributions to San Pedro.

YOU KNOW YOU ARE A MODERN SANPEDRANO IF you only refer to the police officers as the short one, the slim one, the fat one, the kind one, the attentive one, the drunkard, the one who likes to shoot, the only one who really cares, the one who likes to curse, etc.  Modern Sanpedranos don’t seem to connect well and make good relationships with police officers as was done twenty five years ago.
