So where is the chief in Markham. Where are all the good officers that were stopping the dope dealers. Guys like Mike Alexander, Sam Harris, Kevin Wright,Ted Clayton, Jim Knapp, just to name a few. Alex ander and Harris are still there. Clayton retired and Wright got shafted and left. Knapp was also shafted I hear too. I hear is a Deputy Chief at the Park District Police now. Good move for the park dist. Wright will get things done and grants. written He should be the Markham Police Chief. He could make it a better department. It is a shame our community is without a police chief

really i had not heard that about him. Really i knoew he never failed at drug screen where was that at. THe wright harris team, did a lot of dope work in markham made it better. any way. what ever


#5 Jan 15, 2009
how does he hate black people. I know wright seems to me a stand up guy. Everyone has an opinion i guess. He really helped me when I lived there, caught the burglars that robbed my home, before I knew it was ripped off. I got home he had recovered the property and arrested the crook.

Kevin never failed a drug test in his life and doesn"t even drink. Yes the officer you talk about in the beginning of this forum. are and were good officers and they did get the Royal shaft from the city. But people complain if you write them a ticket, But if you need the police and they help you then they are ok.I have worked for Markham With all of them and were a good team I just do not understand why Kevin would want anything at all to do with that City, All the other Offcer that they screwed over left and I am sorry because some good men were screwed over.So Next time you need a cop they are good and bad in all jobs. Every one have a nice day

To Blow:

I have known Kevin Wright & his entire family since I was 12 years old. You are a God Damn liar, Kevin has NEVER done drugs and would NEVER fail a drug test. The man doesnt even drink. So stop being such a hater..

Kevin is ok. Harris is tough. Jim Knapp is a joke, he is a dummie. Markham needs some real police
My line

Kevin Wright does not even drink. Fail a drug screen. Name when and where. I think he is working in private industry right now in police work. He is also I confirmed a depputy chief on the Markham Park District Police. Good I know he will do them good. As far as anything else Kevin is a stand up guy, and a good leader, I worked under him when he was a sgt. He always gave us the encouragement to do the job tried to get us training and equipment. He looked out for. When you become a chief, call me I will come and work for you.

I have known Officer Kevin Wright on a personal level all my life; In that period I have never even seen him drink let alone indulge in drugs. It is disturbing to see a mans character slashed when he has done nothing but been aan advocate against drugs(being one of markhams only drug dog handlers, and serving on a a narc squad with partner Sam harris)and instilled the principles of community policing in a struggling town. Finally it shows a man commitment to his duty and the town that gave him his real big start, when he can bury the hatchet of past struggles and move on in spoken community with the intention of still protecting and serving the vary ppl that "shafted" him.

Markham has a chief now a guy names Wade Ingram, a Chicago PD Lieutenant. He has his work cut out for him, the place is a mob with guns. No direction, vision planning or stuff like that. I know he met with the Park District Police Chief and has plans.
I hope the Mayor (Webb) and the Chief tap Kevin Wright, and bring him back to the CITY, HE WROTE GRANTS AND WAS RESPECTED BY THE RANK AND FILE.
Mayor bring Wright back get the $$$$$ he knows how to get and find.

Park Dist. Police, are you kidding???????? That is the kiss of death for a Police Career. By the way, Wright started as a part timer in Cal Park and was "cut lose" for being INTOXICATED in a Donut shop and flashing his gun.
Do right


#13 Feb 10, 2009
Once again that is not true!!!!!!!!!!The truth is he did start there in that one horse town cal pk, left on his own and never looked back.
Part time officers never carried off duty I know he did not.
Now he is still employed in law enforcement on a full time level. HE IS NOT THE CHIEF THERE IN the PARK DISTRICT. You sound like a frustrated old timer. Let he who is free fron sin, cast the first stone. The bottom line is K Wright is an aggresive, CARING POLICE OFFICER> more that I can say for Chicago Officers, who care about nothing.
Do right

Oh, old timer, if that did happen, which is doubtful, that was over 25 years ago...... REALLY get a life. He should be a CHIEF>>>>> yOUR JUST A HATER

kevin wright was a trigger happy always pulling his gun out cousin kicked his ass while he was on duty

I dont think he ever shot anyone, so where is trigger happy........ And I think he did not pull his gun there either. IF YOUR COUSIN REALLLY DID THAT. doubtful, even if he was back up arrived and well he still went to jail right. Prob sent your cousin to prison too.

let the guy alone, I doubt he would ever work for the City of Markham again, he turned them down a few times in recent history.
