Officer Bobby Brown

Officer Bobby Brown Co-authored the Book, Some Gave All, A History of Baltimore Police Officers Killed in the Line of Duty 1808-2007. Officer Brown uses his investigative skills as one of our top Departmental Historians, these skills were a big help to Bill Hackley on the original site, and are now an important part of the success of the rebuilding of the new "Baltimore City Police History" site. As our official site historian, Bobby helps verify the content of the site, and any new info to be added to the site. We are glad to have Bobby as part of the site, and can't wait to see what kind of info he brings us. 

Officer Bobby Brown and Det. Driscoll were asked for help from Bill Hackley over the years with his website, (The previous version of this site) Officer Brown being a departmental historian seemed the perfect match for helping on this site, Ken enjoyed researching the department, using the three books most commonly associated with our history, and Sun Paper Archives, that and doing some Photoshop work, had Bill Hackley ask him to take over the site should anything happen to him. Both Bobby and Kenny shared a deep respect for the department, and the men and women that serve, have served and will some day serve. Bill Hackley saw that and wanted both of these officers involved. In March 2012 Officer Bill Hackley passed away in his sleep due to heart failure. In May Det. Driscoll was asked to take care of upkeep and maintenance on Bill’s site. Det Driscoll went to Bobby for additional help in investigating the past, and Bobby agreed to be one of our Historians. When Driscoll has questions that have him stumped he goes to Bobby, When he has history that contradicts what others are saying, he takes his research to bobby for a second opinion. The site built in 2012, was rebuilt this year 2015 all at the hands of Ret Det Driscoll, as he learned so much from the former web designers.  Both Bobby and Kenny agree, researching history, is like a criminal investigation; in a criminal investigation you go where the clues take you, in historical research, you go where the information takes. In both cases sometimes you may want it to take you one way, but if it doesn't end up that way, or one little thing disproves that theory, you have to stop; rethink everything, and go where the clues, or information take you.   Devider chrome

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.
