The Medal of Honor is awarded by the Police Commissioner to members who distinguish themselves conspicuously by gallantry and courage at the risk of their own lives, above and beyond the call of duty, in an extraordinary act of heroism and bravery without endangering or jeopardizing the lives of others and without detriment in any way to their sworn oath. 

A member must perform an act so outstanding that it clearly distinguishes superlative courage, beyond that call of duty, from lesser forms of bravery.

The Medal of Honor, when awarded posthumously, shall be affixed to a plaque with a replica of the members badge and an appropriate inscription. This plaque shall be presented to the deceased member’s next of kin by the Police Commissioner or his designee. A plaque of similar design shall be displayed in the Departmental Memorial Shrine located in the lobby of the Headquarters Building.

Baltimore Police Historical Society

Baltimore Police Historical Society put the articles found on this site together using research from old newspapers, old books, old photographs, and old artifacts. We rely more heavily on information written at or near the time of the incidents or events that we are researching. We do not put too much weight on the more recently written historic information, or information that has been written with a biased opinion, or agenda. We will not tell our readers what to think about our past, as much as we will tell a story as it was written with the hopes of our readers forming their own opinions. We tell a story about what happened, and not why it happened. That said, ever so often we might come across a story that to us is so exciting we might express that enthusiasm in our writings. We hope the reader will still form an opinion of their own based on the information written at the time, and not information more recently written that has a so-called "filtered past" that has been twisted and pulled in the direction of a storyteller's personal agenda.
