Police Officer Leo Bacon

On this day in Baltimore Police History 9 Oct 1936 we lost our brother Police Officer Leo Bacon to a surgery that came about due to a Line of Duty Injury that had occurred sometime earlier based on the following:


Drawn from correspondence between Commissioner Charles D. Gaither and the Law Offices of Hargest, LeViness, Duckett and McGlannan On February 26, 1932, Officer Bacon was injured when helping move a semaphore house through traffic at the intersection of Eutaw and Saratoga Streets. Officer Bacon was assigned to the Traffic Division and was on duty while directing this movement. During this incident, Officer Bacon received an injury to his kidneys. This injury continued to aggravate him and he finally went to a doctor. After some initial treatment for his injury, his injuries continued to disturb him and a diagnosis was made by Dr. A. J. Gillis of epididymitis (a medical condition characterized by discomfort or pain in of the epididymis) in the right side. Officer Bacon was also diagnosed with a stone in the left kidney severe enough to warrant surgery. Dr. Gillis believed that this was also related to the accident and injury sustained on February 26, 1932. This surgery resulted in death as a result of pneumonia on October 9, 1936. The Department awarded Line of Duty Death benefits to Mrs. Leo Bacon in January 1937.

As his brothers and sisters of the Baltimore Police Department we will not let him be forgotten, his service Honored the City of Baltimore, and the Baltimore Police Department may he rest in peace, and may God bless him.
