Officer Bobby Brown
Off. Robert "Bobby" Brown


In 1991 Bobby Brown joined the Baltimore Police Department where he was initially assigned the Western District after graduating the academy. In January of 1998 he was transferred to the Southern District where he currently serves. During his career Officer Brown was awarded The Distinguished Service Award, a Bronze Star, three Commendation Ribbons, three Police Commissioner's Special Service Ribbon, (2000, 2008 and 2011), a Ten year Safe Driving Award, and 12 Letters of Commendation.

Officer Bobby Brown Co-authored the Book, Some Gave All, A History of Baltimore Police Officers Killed in the Line of Duty 1808-2007. Officer Brown uses his investigative skills as one of our top Departmental Historians, these skills were a big help to Bill Hackley on the original site, and are now an important part of the success of the rebuilding of the new "Baltimore City Police History" site. As our official site historian, Bobby helps verify the content of the site, and any new info to be added to the site. We are glad to have Bobby as part of the site, and can't wait to see what kind of info he brings us. 

Officer Bobby Brown and Det. Driscoll were asked for help from Bill Hackley over the years with his website, (The previous version of this site) Officer Brown being a departmental historian seemed the perfect match for helping on this site, Ken enjoyed researching the department, useing the three books most commonly associated with our history, and Sun Paper Archives, that and doing some Photoshop work, had Bill Hackley ask him to take over the site should anything happen to him. Both Bobby and Kenny shared a deep respect for the department, and the men and women that serve, have served and will some day serve. Bill Hackley saw that and wanted both of these officers involved. In March 2012 Officer Bill Hackley passed away in his sleep due to heart failure. In May Det. Driscoll was asked to take care of upkeep and maintenance on Bill’s site. Det Driscoll came to Bobby for additional help in investigating the past, and Bobby agreed to be our site's Historian.  Together Bobby, Kenny and the company they hired built the current site. They had some donations coming in to help cover some of the cost of mailings, hosting and domain registration. P/O Bobby is married and is the proud father of five. Together he and Det. Driscoll will continue to work to keep the site going, and the history of the Baltimore Police Department alive.
