The History Of The Monroe, Louisiana Police Department
Read about the early days of law enforcement in the area that would become Monroe, with newspaper accounts of events that the officers of the Monroe Police experienced from 1783 – 1993.
The History of the Monroe Police Department was written in 1993 by Major Arnold “Slick” Moore (Retired). It is available in the Ouachita Parish Public Library (Call # SC La 352.2 Moo) in the Special Collections Section, and is provided here as a service to the citizens of Monroe.
Major Moore began his career with MPD on June 16, 1961 and retired after 25 years, 7 months, and 28 days of service on February 15, 1987. In that span, Major Moore received numerous commendations throughout his distinguished career and was selected “Supervisor Of The Year” in 1982.
This book is a collection of newspaper articles and personal notes that detail the early origins of Monroe’s law enforcement efforts dating back to 1783, and provides an interesting look at how Monroe evolved through the late 1800 and 1900′s era.
