Uploaded on May 18, 2011 Officer John A.W. Burgess tips his officer's cap in front of Fairhaven Town Hall in the Summer of 1927. He began his career in law enforcement in 1888. The Police Dept was actually at town hall along with a jail downstairs. As you can see, no one messed with the long arm of the law in Fairhaven, MA as Officer Burgess in his 40th year kept his billy club (somewhere in the desk draw ) and crank key to start his Model T motor car on stand by.
