The Baltimore Police Department's Motor's Unit was formed on 29 May 1914 with 5 Indian twin cylinder motorcycles. Their main duty was to chase down speeding horse-drawn vehicles but that quickly changed with the growing number of automobiles.  The unit has been in continuous operation since 1914.  In the beginning, they worked out of the Districts but in the 1930's they were reassigned to the newly formed Traffic Division, and were designated as the Traffic Enforcement Section, Motorcycle Unit (the division also had a parking control unit, a foot traffic unit that directed traffic downtown, and an accident investigation unit).  The number of officers has risen and fallen several times due to finances, or safety issues but is alive and well today.  The recently appointed commissioner [2013] is from California and he is a supporter of the Motors Unit.  Harley Davidson is the only brand used today and has been since 1920 when a Harley shop opened in Baltimore.  The department used Cushmans, and small Hondas but these were used for foot beat officers to get to their posts.

Motor Police Named
20 March 1919 [Thursday]

24 Will Compose New Division for Patrolling Annex

System Effective Today
Plan to Put Young Men in Charge of Machine Necessitate Many Transfers

Twenty-four motorcycle patrolmen, composing the new motor division for policing the Annex. were named to the Police Board yesterday by Marshall Carter upon the recommendation of Deputy Marshal House and at the same time, a score of transfers of patrolman from their old districts to the Annex was officially made by the board. The transferred became necessary to execute the plans of the Police Board and placing young, efficient men in charge of the motorcycles equipped with sidecars.

The last vestige of former county policing will disappear today [Thursday - 20 Mar 1919} when the three-shift system of duty will extend to the entire “territory of the Annex. A number of city sergeants have been assigned to Annex bailiwicks. The sergeants named for this work include Thomas J. Ferris, Eastern District: George W. Vance, Northwestern District, and Frank Gatch, Northeastern District.

“We have arranged to place 60 men in the Annexed territory,” said Marshall Carter last night, “and the new system will go into effect tomorrow. [Friday, 21 March 1919] everything is in readiness, the motorcycles have been received and the men have been broken in sufficiently to warrant the installation of the system planned several weeks ago. There will be 24 motorcycle patrolman who will patrol fix posts located in the Northwestern, Northern and Northeastern suburbs of the city, and the hours of duty have been mapped out in a manner which will give the maximum amount of protection with a force of men one-half in number required for the policing of such a widespread territory. Within a week or two, the department will be in a position to open the outer early sections to telephone communication at certain booths. The telephone number of the booth nearest the resident of a given post will be placed in the possession of every resident in, and the hours agreed upon are such that to patrolman will be on duty on one post continually for 24 hours of the day.”

The Assignments to the Annex are as Follows

Northwestern – Sgt. Vance and Motorcycle Patrolman Clarence Lawman, John E. Schueler, Martin Ruppert, Frank E. Herryman, Edward C. Shellito and Harry G Griese. Patrolman Kleeman will continue foot duty at West Arlington. Northeastern – Sgt. Gatch and Motorcycle Patrolman George Busick, John Duff, Henry Nuth, trolls a. Muth, Harry L. Baker, and Claude Twigg. Northern – August H. Bierman, Chas W. Moore and Charles M. Smith with Mounted Men Patrolman Joseph A. Buroch, Henry C. Moore, Gustav A. Romoser and John E. Porter. Patrolman Jehu Rutledge will continue his duty at Roland Park. Southern – Sgt. Helmer, Motorcycle Patrolman W. C. Lederer, James D. Harris, Frank Lovett, George T. Cook and seven patrolmen. Southwestern – Sgt. Bealefeld and Motorcycle Patrolman Joseph C. Schaefer and George L. Marburger. Patrolman Moeller and McConkey will continue his foot duties Eastern – Sergeants Ferris, Hesse and Feehley, Motorcycle Patrolman Thomas P. Arthur and George Pilsch and fifteen patrolmen.

Motorcycle Side - Cars New Crime Deterrent

The Sun (1837-1989); pg. 16

Motorcycle Side-Cars New Crime Deterrent Latest Police Vehicles to Have Hand and Foot Cuffs Attached To Secure Prisoners. A measure intended as a deterrent to crime waves is about to be adopted by the Baltimore police department – in the form of a motorcycle side-car. In New York, they recently equipped the police department with side-car motorcycles, and more than 20 sergeants have applied for retirement. The sidecars were provided for the sergeants to ride in. In Baltimore, the sidecars are for criminals. To make the deterrent stronger, the Baltimore sidecars are to be equipped with handcuffs and foot cuffs [leg-irons]. They have the effect of locking the criminal securely to the side-car. Not only will a criminal be unable to escape while going around a curve at 70 miles an hour, but he will not be jarred loose by collisions with stone walls, telephone poles, storefronts or furniture van. In the case of an accident, the motorcycle rider may leap and possibly save himself, but the criminal will, in every case, go down with his side-car. In all, 136 of these side-car motorcycles are expected in Baltimore within the next week or two. They will be distributed among the six police districts recently increased in size by annexation.

The police department is trying out three new Honda cycles for use in the city parks and high traffic areas. It plans to buy 22 of the two-wheelers if they are found suitable for the job. The cycles, which cost $350 each, are intended to beef up patrols in the parks and can travel just about anywhere a man can walk you.

Motor-Cycle Police Equipped With Automatic Speed Witness

11 April 1928

Old newspaper Stories of the Times - Apr 11, 1928; pg. 3

When you hear the sharp blast of the policeman’s whistle and you pull to the side of the road after slowing down from the 35 or 40 miles an hour you were driving, do not prepare that familiar old refrain, “officer I was only going 12 or 15 miles.” This old, old story, which is falling on the ears of traffic patrolman since the birth of the “horseless carriage” and speed laws, will avail to motorists nothing as far as Baltimore’s traffic police are concerned.

New speedometer used

They are prepared to “storm and was figures, which everyone says, never lie. The way in which they will do it will be through a newly perfected speedometer, with which the majority of the traffic division’s motorcycles have been equipped. It is a simple device, much like any other speedometer, except that pressure of a little button stops it from registering and retains on the dial the rate of speed at which the machine was going. Thus, the motorcycle patrolman paces of the motorists until he goes faster than the law permits, pushes the button on the Speedometer and when he pulls up he has something tangible to put before him, or her, as the case may be.

Explains “Automatic Witness.”

Capt. Hamilton R Atkinson, of the traffic division, explains the new “automatic witness” yesterday and the use to which it is being put by his men. “We have found it of great benefit so far,” he said, “as it gives the policeman something concrete to which to base his charge of speeding.” The state police will make trial tests of the new devices for speedometers, E. Austin Baughman, Commissioner of motor vehicles, announces

Motors New Midnight Shift Circa 1936

1936 - 19 June 1936 - Seven motorcycle policemen will have inaugurated the new all-night motor-cycle patrol of the city beginning in evening 19 June 1936 at 9 o'clock, it was announced a day earlier on 18 June 1936 by Capt. Hamilton Atkinson, commander of the traffic Division at the time. He said, they would have remained on duty until 5 AM. 

Captain Atkinson declared that one shift of motor-cycle police will have worked from 3 to 11 o’clock, and with the addition of the new squad, there would have been twenty-five motor-cycle policemen on duty in various sections of the city from 9 to 11 PM

The new squad was assigned to work in the six sections of the city at the time. In the areas where records revealed the majority of accidents had occurred during that time period. Later, the Captain said, he had hoped to get more motor-cycle policemen for the all-night shift as the program proved to be a success.

Headquarters circa 1976

Retired Officer Dave Eastman relates:

When I went to motors, they had 1968 models. They had the radio in the box on the back and the speaker and microphone were mounted between the handlebars. They were the old 150 band radios. We had gone to the 450 band radios ( the walkie-talkies) but we could still use the 150s because communications were not fully converted to the 450. The '64s were a dark silver with black trim. They were the first ones with chrome rather than painted wheels. I don't believe they had two-way radios and I think the guy's call box theory is correct. In the old days, the department had lots of motormen and they worked three shifts. The midnight shift had two motormen teamed up in a car. They did not ride motors late at night. If you look at that one photo, they are all motor officer, over 50 of them. they all took the wires out of there hats and had that "50 mission" crush. They said it prevented the wind from blowing their hats off but I think it was just to look cool. They wore the blue hats back then. Major "Box" Harris, who was beloved by all, was appointed by Commissioner Pomerleau to be chief of traffic even though he was never a cop. He had the division go to all white hats sometime in the late 60's. Motormen also did not wear high boots, but rather high topped shoes and "puttees". which were leather and wrapped around the calf. They were held in place by two buckles and joined the high topped shoes at the ankle. One of the unique features of the Baltimore Police motorcycles were the foot clutch and the tank or side shift. The officer worked the clutch with his left for and shifted gears with his left hand. You can see the shift lever in the photos. Many officers had billiard balls ( number 8 being the most popular) drilled and tapped to screw on the shift lever. Also, in the photos, you can see the siren mounted just behind the officers' left foot. To activate the siren, the officer would stomp on a lever which made the siren shaft rub against the rear tire. This made the siren scream and they were quite loud. Every once in a while the shaft would actually go through the side of the tire causing a blowout, not a good thing when you are chasing a speeding car! If you notice, the older motor officers had leather coats. Commissioner Pomerleau did not like leather coats and took them away from the motor and mounted officers. They got them back after Pomerleau retired.
