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.

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.

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.
