Featured Photo - September 2010

This undated photo, taken by Pentz Studio in York, Pennsylvania, shows what we believe to be Special Police officers of the York Police Department. The style badges worn by the officers appear very similar to an early York Special Police badge in the museum's collection.

Special Police officers were hired on a per day basis and generally for a period no longer than three days. These officers would assist the regular police officers, where a large group of people might be expected or additional security was required.
