A few weeks ago an old Salem Police badge was added to the collection. This afternoon in the mail I got a reply from Chief Tucker about the badge. The only information ha had about the badge is that they were used up to 20-22 years ago, when they switched to the current issue badge. He also said some of the older officers were using them 30 years ago, when he joined the force.
I'd also like to thank Chief Tucker for replying to my letter, as well
as the gracious gift of this newly minted Salem Police Department
