Baltimore Police Department History

A little over two years ago, William Hackley, retired Baltimore police officer and amateur historian, passed away.

Were it not for Officer Hackley, so much of the history of the BPD would have been be lost to time.

I was afraid that project would end with Hackley's passing. Luckily, retired detective Kenny Driscoll has kept the history alive.

The website is now here: http://baltimorecitypolicehistory.com/citypolice. Give it a look. There's a lot there. Driscoll wrote in a comment, "I hope everyone will continue to enjoy the site, and send pics, and info."

Dear Professor Moskos,

My name is Tara Sonin and I am writing on behalf of Dan Morse's marketing team. Dan is a Pulitzer-Prize finalist and critically acclaimed journalist for the Washington Post with decades of experience writing about crime. His first book, the nationally bestselling true-crime thriller The Yoga Store Murder has captivated audiences with it's central premise: in 2011, two girls were found in a storage room at a Maryland lululemon location; one girl was dead, and the other appeared to be severely injured after a vicious attack by two strange men. But as the case proceeded, it became very clear that not all was as it seemed. Renowned true-crime writer Harold Schechter said of Morse's work: "A true-crime tour de force, with all of the features that make a whodunit great: a suspenseful, intricately constructed plot; a taut prose style that wastes no words; memorable characters brought to vivid life in a few deft strokes; and of course a dogged murder investigation that leads to a stunning revelation. Readers will tear through the book- as I did- to learn the solution to the dark mystery at it's core."

More information about Dan and the Yoga Store Murder can be found here: theyogastoremurder.com

I am coordinating a Blog Tour for The Yoga Store Murder and would love it if your blog, Cop in the Hood, would be a part of it! There are no firm dates for the tour as of now, but our goal is to start in the end of June. Dan will provide you with a copy of The Yoga Store Murder at your convenience. If you need more time to read and write your review, please let me know. We were also wondering if there might be an opportunity to have an interview on your blog as well, where you and Dan might be "in conversation" about writing crime fiction and mysteries vs true crime: the challenges, rewards, and processes!

If you are interested in participating in the blog tour, please forward a mailing address at which we can send your copy by next Wednesday, May 28th. My email address is tarasonin23@gmail.com I hope you will join us and share The Yoga Store Murder with your audience.

Best,
Tara Sonin
