Historic photographs

Last week, I blogged about the availability of a great archive of Annual Reports stretching back to 1904. Thanks to the help of our interns, who work for free, these documents are not only preserved, but made available to the general public on the web.

That not all the interns in the Management Services Unit have been up to, though. We’ve also been collecting, organizing, and scanning historic photographs of the police department and its personnel. While the archive is huge, we’ve begun to post some representative photos on our public website.

This will continue to grow, as time and volunteers allow. We’d like to have a few picks from each decade. The links to the decades are up at the top of the page on our short History of the Lincoln Police Department. Enjoy.

Enjoy them I did, as well as the history itself. I'm old enough to have experienced the Starkweather madness, tho not in Lincoln at the time. I'd hoped to see old friend Jeff Taylor and his dog Al, but he wasn't included in the canine article. In any case, keep up the good work.
