You found one of our Easter-Eggs or Hidden treats. In this case, it was hidden in plain sight and includes two downloadable PDF files. Easter-Eggs like this can be found throughout this site, sometimes they're hidden in pictures, (like here while not hidden we put them in the pictures of the book cover and title page,) You'll notice by hovering your mouse courser over the book cover/cover page, the courser will change from a pointer/courser to an index finger used to click a link or hyperlink. Click on any of these to open a page picture, or file. Often throughout the site we might have a newspaper article, if it is too small to read, and we are working from an article we have on file, we might have a link added into the article so that you can open the actual article, Note: when you open the actual article if it still appears too small, click it and it should zoom in for you Sometimes these Easter-eggs will be hidden in the text, little things like using white text on a white page, so it isn't visible and blends better into the page. These little gifts most of the time are right in front of us, like this page being found in the Drop Down Title of the Menu Bar, we hardly ever have the drop down menu as the link to a page.  Here we have two great resources for Baltimore Police History.

Also it should be known that more often than not these Ester-eggs are not relevant to our History, they can just be fun little items, like when my badge was retired, someone recorded it and sent it to Patty in an email, Patty designed my page using a timeline (something I find timeline interesting, as they could show all the boring things we did too. I'll explain, when I had 9 years on I had received 4 Officer of the Year Awards, someone congratulated me in front of my dad and my dad asked if I had gotten 4 in 9 years, what was I doing the other 5 years that I didn't win. That sounds mean, but dad used to do it as a joke growing up, if we got an A he asked why we didn't get an A+. It was his kind of strange sens of humor that some looked at him as if he was too hard on us, but we knew he was proud, he just couldn't tell us the way other dads might. So the timeline to me can have sort of a hidden joke in it. Anyway, in the timeline or on the timeline page there are picture of me and the commissioner along with the rest of the command staff as they retired my badge, and if you click on the pics they will open the video. Also throughout the site we might refer to the General Orders, which i think are call Policies these days, we might have copied the GOs abut we also included downloadable files obtained through these links.
