Baltimore Police Cadet Rocker Patch 1968

The Cadet program was started to help bring better quality police to Baltimore, it gave us a chance to give young men a chance to see if they wanted to be police, but it also gave us a chance to grab them before other agencies did. Another benefit was that it allowed more police to work the streets, while cadets handled some of their work, answering phones, filing or finding reports. The first Cadet hired was Edmund Bossle, he was hired on the day the program was initiated, 17 June 1965, and issued badge number 101.

mounted unit insignia1Traffic Insignia warn by Traffic Section

As far back as the "Beauty Squad/Traffic Squad" circa 1905 this insignia was worn to represent transportation at a time when horses, wagons etc. were still being used to travel, and at a time when even motor vehicles used a spoke or wood rim. While some of us thought these were limited to the Mounted Police Unit, these were actually used first for those that directed traffic downtown and around the city known as the Beauty Squad. In hindsight, it should have been obvious it was for more than just Mounted, after all Horses don't have wheels LOL. But more than what the officer was using to get around this insignia represents what branch of law enforcement these officers mainly worked and that was transportation, traffic. The insignia was used by Motors, Mounted, Traffic police etc. In 1952 officers sought a different insignia on a fabric patch, of a Wheel inside of a wheel, with Gold Wings, and the words POLICE TRAFFIC an example can be found on this page 21 patches down from the top
