Baltimore City Police History Website's
Hall of Fame
Made up of Baltimore City Police Officers and Leaders that throughout BPD history have made notable differences. Those that brought significant change, those that introduced new tools and or techniques to the department, changes that made the kinds of differences that we are still seeing to this day. For instance, Marshal Jacob Frey, who introduced the Call Box, Patrol Wagon, the Mounted Unit, Marine Unit and several other major improvements within the agency that the department and its members are still enjoying to this day. We might also find Agent Gene Cassidy on the list, Gene was an inspiration to so many, but in particular, to Ken as when Ken broke his back and was told he might never walk again, rather than feel sorry for himself he spoke of Gene, saying, Gene was injured to a point where most would have retired and found a new career. But, loving his job with the Baltimore Police Department so much Gene continued working as an instructor at the academy, where he inspiring others with his no-quit thought process. Then after 30 years with BPD, Gene retired to go to work for the FBI. When Ken was injured, he was not given the option to continue working, but he was so inspired by Gene, that he knew he couldn't just give up, he had to do something, So he became actively involved with the department on a volunteer basis, as a historian and now thanks to Gene, Ken has been with the Department for 31 years. 16 of them Ken was a sworn Officer or Detective, and from then on, he has been a volunteer historian. Ken credits Gene with showing him how to keep pushing forward and having a no quit perspective.
