Sergeant Paul E. Meeks Dies

Police Officer Stricken Suddenly with Apoplexy at his Home
 

26 Dec 1915

Sergeant Paul Meeks Died suddenly from a Apoplexy as he was leaving his house to head into work for his shift. The 37 year old Sergeant lived in the 1900 Blk. of Mosher St. The sergeant had enjoyed excellent health, turned to his wife and told her he wasn't feeling right and asked that she summon the family doctor. By the time the physician had arrived the sergeant was dead. . The good sergeant left behind a widow and four children, one of which a boy who was blind.

Meeks joined the police force on 15 Aug 1901 and was assigned to the Northwestern district where he would continue to work unto 15 Aug 1914 when he was promoted to Sergeant and transferred to the Western District.

Only six weeks prior to his death did he join the Police Benefit Association. So his widow was qualified to receive a financial aid, rendered from the program.

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.
