Description

Burglars, robbers and gangsters killed six St. Louis Police Officers in 1920. Automobile accidents took the lives of two more officers. The St. Louis Police Department never experienced a year like 1920, when eight brave officers were killed in the line of duty. The Roaring Twenties was off to an explosive start for the City of St. Louis. 1919 to 1920 was a particularly rough two year period for the department. Robbers even shot the Chief of Police. This book covers the ten incidents which took the lives of twelve officers during the two-year period. Includes historical photographs.show more
