Fred Waters, member of the St. Augustine Police Department

March 1, 1950 - April 29, 1983.

City Honors Longtime Police Officer with Street Renaming

In 1950, the City of St. Augustine, like many cities across the South, began to move away from the institution of segregation by integrating its workforce. In 1950 when the St. Augustine Police Department sought applicants to integrate its roster of officers, one of its first recruits was a 30 year old school teacher who was both a college football star and a veteran of World War II. 

The choice was a good one for the department and the city, for when Fred Waters retired the force he had served the people of St. Augustine for over 33 years.

The City of St. Augustine will honor Fred Waters, who died in 2003, by naming the street on which the Waters family resided in his honor and in tribute to his faithful service to the community.

The City Commission voted last October to change the name of Railroad Avenue to Fred Waters Way and will hold a brief ceremony on Saturday, January 13 to commemorate the renaming. The ceremony at the corner of Railroad Avenue and Spring Street is scheduled for 11:00am and the public is invited to attend.
