Saint Paul Police Historical Society

Saint Paul Police Historical Society Committed to Preserving and Promoting the History of Policing in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
The Saint Paul, Minnesota Police Department's historical roots extend back to the mid-nineteenth century. At that time, the containment of crime and the maintenance of order became major issues of concern for the rapidly growing frontier community of Saint Paul. The appointment of William R. Miller to the office of City Marshall in 1854 heralded the birth of the Department. Come inside our site (www.spphs.org) to experience the rich and colorful history of both the city of Saint Paul and the Saint Paul Police Department.

In the history of the Saint Paul Police Department, 32 police officers have lost their lives in the line of duty.

Today we pause to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, the families whose loved ones were taken from them too soon, and the officers who continue to run towards danger on a daily basis.

“Police officers are beacons of hope for those in the throes of life’s darkest moments. They see the unimaginable, experience the implausible, and hear the unspeakable.

And they keep coming back … until they don’t,” -Chief Axtell.

You can read more about the Saint Paul Police Department’s fallen officers on the Saint Paul Police Historical Society website: http://www.spphs.com/honor_roll/index.php.

We sit in solemn silence as a bell tolls and we read the names of the 32 Saint Paul police officers who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

“Each name will echo in our minds, each striking of the bell will feel like a blow to the soul … each a stinging reminder that the safety of those who protect us—and the safety of our society—balances on a sharp edge.

Those we honor today gave their lives to maintain that balance,” -Chief Axtell.

Are there any good books or short stories about being a police in Saint Paul in the late 80s/early 90s?
