P/O Roland W. Morgan

Fallen HeroOfficer Roland W. Morgan


On this day in Baltimore Police History 1951, we lost our brother, Officer Roland W. Morgan. Officer Morgan was struck and killed while getting out of his patrol car on the night of January 6, 1951, to use a call box for his hourly call-in at 11 p.m.

According to an investigation, John Caskie Jr.'s car struck him. Caskie was arrested at a nightclub several hours later and was charged with manslaughter, driving under the influence, and failure to stop after an accident. Officer Morgan was married and the father of three children. He served with the department for 6 years, having been appointed on September 5th, 1944.

We, his brothers and sisters of the Baltimore Police Department, will not let him be forgotten, as we take this time to remember him and thank him for his service and sacrifice.
