The History of the Decatur, Illinois Police Department : Vol...

This historical work details the policing of a Midwest city of 50,000 population during the first half of “The Roaring Twenties.” Walk the beats with the officers of the city as a relatively quiet community copes with rising crime during the Prohibition Era of United States history. From humorous incidents to the court-ordered execution of a murderer, the police department experiences a multitude of changes to combat the bootlegging and violence that it generated. This work follows three previous volumes which covered the years from 1856 through 1919.
