Frequently Asked Questions 

  • 1. How do I get information about my family member who was once a Baltimore Police Officer?

    Our site is not part of the Baltimore City Police Department. We are not paid; we are a group of retired police that over the years have collaborated our information to preserve the history of the Baltimore Police Department. We have provided hours and hours of research as well as much of our funds to build and maintain this site. We will always do what we can to find information on family members, or various units, equipment, etc. So while we love questions like this because they help us build our knowledge, we are here more to accept information, photos, equipment, etc. With these types of contributions, we find we can more easily preserve our history and share it with future generations.

    -

    To give you an idea of how much we have done just since 2012. This website consisted of 90 pages when retired Bill Hackley passed away and left the site to Retired Detective Kenny Driscoll. Kenny took the site from that initial 90 pages to 200 pages in a little under the three months it took for him to rebuild the site. Since 2012 we have increased the site from that initial 200 to now more than 1100 pages.

    -

    That said, if you are seeking information either use this page to write your question(s) in the contact us form above or send an email to retired Detective Kenny Driscoll. His email address is Kenny@BaltimoreCityPoliceHistory.com

    -

    I should add that from every question we have ever received we have gained more information than what we were asked for. For instance, while looking up one Officer, we also found information on our Vice unit. From another Officer, we learned about our Polygraph. So while we can't always promise results, we can promise we are interested in taking your question(s) and hope to find the information we need to help you, then perhaps with some luck, we may find a little more information about our own history.

  • 2. Can you get a picture, or pictures of my family member who was once a Baltimore Police Officer

    As is written in the previeous answer - The site is not part of Baltimore City Police Department. We're not paid; we're mainly a group of retired police and their families that over the years have realized no one was preserving our history so we built this site in order to fill that need. I should also point ot, the original idea was made by Retired Officer Bill Hackley, when Bill passed away in 2012 he left the site to is friend retired Detective Kenny Driscoll. Kenny collaborated information with other retired officers and his own research to better preserve the history of the Baltimore Police Department. Together they have provided hundreds if not thousands of hours of research as well as much of our funds to build and maintain this site as they could put together. They will always do what they can to find information on family members, or various units, equipment, etc. So while we love questions like this because they help us build our knowledge, we are here more to accept information, photos, equipment, etc. as with these types of contributions, we find we can more easily preserve our history and share it with future generations. That said we do have thousands of photos on the site, feel free to look though, in fact we would like nothing more than to have you go through and find your family member on our site. If you do, let us know so we an put a name to a face.

  • 4. Do you have a museum?

    Retired Detective Kenny Driscoll helped to re-open the Baltimore Police Museum downtown located in the headquarters building at 601 E Fayette St. Baltimore, Md 21202 That location is opened on Fridays from 10 am to 2 pm and on Saturdays by appointment also from 11 am to 3 pm. Det Driscoll has more than ,000.00 of his personal collection on loan at that museum.

    -

    There is a second smaller museum located at Ken's home; the entire first floor is filled with items, they are hoping to have that location ready by spring 2018 at which time it will be opened seven days a week by appointment to police active, retired, and their families. Ken is working on making t interactive by adding QR-Codes, 360 photo exhibits and more. The items Ken has added to both museum are exciting and help tell the story of the Baltimore Police Department's past.

    -

    Appointments can be made using the, Contact Us form above.
    (When making an appointment, please be sure to provide us which location you are interested in and all your contact information.

  • 5. Do you sell Police memorabilia?

    I'm sorry, but we do not sell police memorabilia.

    -

    Ken has had an odd rule most our married life of never selling, trading or giving away anything given to him. He tends to think if someone thought enough of him to trust him with an item, it is his responsibility to maintain that item. So he will put items on display in the museum downtown, or the museum in his home where they can be seen and enjoyed by everyone.

    -

    With his having been paralyzed on the job in 2001, he enjoys having a museum here at the house where he can meet with police and their families to share information on our police history.

    -

    So as you can see, he cannot and will not sell items donated, or given to him, or to the Baltimore Police History site. He does from time to time design Patches, T-shirts, Challenge coins, etc. to be sold as fundraisers to keep the site up and to run. He also askes for monetary donations to help with expenses. It may not seem it would be expensive, but running a 1200 plus page website, with multiple domain names, firewalls, mods, plug-ins, etc. can be costly.

    -

    Information on the items we have can be found here on this website or on our Facebook and Twitter pages "BaltoPoliceHistory" - "Baltimore Police Museum" or "Baltimore Police History" Facebook page.

    -

    If you have any questions use the Contact us Form above.

  • 6. Do you have an "About Us" page?

    Not at present, However, Ken has a new Mod, Plug-in, Component company he likes and will most likely be getting something from them soon. For now, however, we do not.

    -

    That said we do have some pages dedicated to Bill Hackley the site's founder, Bobby Brown an officer Ken often talks with about Baltimore Police History and my husband, Retired Detective Kenny Driscoll.

    -

    I made Ken's page using information I found elsewhere on the site and from a speech read the last time Ken received an Officer of the Year Award. The following links will take you to these officers.

    -

    Retired Officer Bill Hackley - HERE
    Officer Bobby Brown - HERE
    Retired Detective Kenny Driscoll - HERE 

    -

    Contact information can be found for Bobby and Ken on their pages.
