The New Castle Police Department was established in 1875 with just a few patrolmen. I believe Joseph Robinson (1844-1902), a Civil War veteran, was appointed as the first official Chief of Police in 1883. The department grew in the coming years and the photo above depicts the the force in 1927. Henry Dysart (1884-1936), a veteran motorcycle cop, served as Chief of Police from 1925-1932. Also shown above is Harrison M. “Buck” Reynolds (1888-1971), who served as County Sheriff from 1926-1930 and a Justice of the Peace in Union Township for many years. (1927) Full Size
