Montgomery County Police 100th Anniversary

"The original six", that was the number of officers sworn in to patrol Montgomery County, Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC.  That was back in 1922.  There were no fancy patrol cars, no computers with instant communications, and no specialized units. They were given a badge, a gun, and a motorcycle, then told to wait around on the corner until someone needed help.

The department is celebrating its 100th anniversary, and West Street was brought in to help tell their story.
