Lawrence Police Department (Lawrence, MA)


The Special Collections of the Lawrence Public Library received a large collection of log books from the Lawrence Police Department last fall (2016).  The archivist estimates 50 linear feet.  The collection is still in processing now.

The first volume (see above) contains date, number, name, offense, by whom arrested, where arrested, age, height, weight, eyes, hair, com. (complexion), build, nativity, time of arrest, cash, occupation, residence, office of police court justice, and final disposition.  The books are not yet entirely in place, but will ultimately be available for limited research in the future.
