While working on putting this page together, a page with Misc police pics, of our brothers and sisters in the field, doing what we do, pics that will help preserve our history, and provide some sort of back-up or assistance to the active officers. My thought was to call it either "Police Paparazzi" or "Paparazzi Police" each having a funny meaning, but Police in front of, or behind the word Paparazzi can give it a different meaning, and still not change the effects of the shot. The added security I or any one of us that stops to take a pic of our brothers in the line of duty, and if need be the on-scene 10-16, as I am sure if the officer needed a back-up we would put down the camera and help. All that said and done, I was talking this over with one of my site developers and design techs; I was a little excited ( I know hard to believe - I get a little excited about police stuff, our history, my time with the BPD and this site..... ) Anyway, I was a little excited, and when I went to say one of these two police/paparazzi/police phrases, and not knowing which should go first, my mouth took over and coined a new phrase, a phrase that I think will be the phrase we are going to use. I called it "Cop-parazzi" a phrase that I fell in love with almost as quickly as I was hearing it. I love how my mind works, it would be nice though if it and my mouth would communicate better... so I  would know what I am thinking before I say it. Sometimes I hear it for the first time, the same time Patty hears it, and that can be dangerous LOL.

This is nice, I would like to build a display showing our various hats, but have hat devices made to reflect the year said hat was worn, I would like to show our women's police hat (The hat device can't use a year because all Women's badge numbers at the time started with 7000. The Pith Hat, Round hat, Bobby type Helmet, and Six Point Hat. It would make a nice display.

The horse for this display was said to have been on loan until the owner decided he wanted to start charging, when he was told the department didn't have a budget, he brought a truck and took his horse, or so the story goes.

These were nicely made for the times, but since we have better ways of making these kinds of things. Sadly these so poorly made that using them would be a disgrace to our fallen and not an honor to them

Musuem 15 We bought a few pics from a lady on eBay that bought several of these in a storage locker, she thought the young lady in the pics was a criminal because she was being polygraphed in one shot and either fingerprinted, or standing with uniformed police, but the seller thought she was in trouble. I expsianed she was an officer and the lady felt bad, saying she didn't realize we polygraphed our own.

Pistol match BPD team at sparrows point

L to R to Bernie , Joe Beckhart, David Echoles, next 2 unk, Lewendowski (don’t remember which one)... seated   L to R  Charlie Cumberledge, Joe Fosler, Sam Torres , George Capp... on the table were the trophies THESE MEN had won up to that point in the contest... As an interesting side note, many of our shooters were paid to endore various ammo types, guns etc. 
Sparrows Point Police Department used to sponsor a pistol match that drew police from all over the country... It was a nice outing... shooters could take their family, it was a picnic type atmosphere... They had to stop, from what they were told, was due to the Sparrows Point Country Club and their complaints of the noise...

We didn't think this was us (BPD) and still don't, aside from the look of the badges and hat devices 
The officer with the nightstick isn't holding it like a Baltimore officer. This in our opinion is not Baltimore Police, but the pic is good to show even in the old days, Baltimore police held their Espantoon one way, and everyone else held their nightsticks another.

The Baltimore Sun Sun Nov 20 1960 4aThis is how we hold our stick, (it's not a handle, it's a burl-head/barrel-head)
It is what makes a nightstick in anyone else's hands an Espantoon in ours
