Warwick Police Inspector Chris Mathiesen has collected a lot of department history since he started in the 1960s, including weapons, badges, articles and records, and he’s hoping the public can help him add a photo of fallen officer Patrolman Walter McQuarrie, shot and killed on duty in 1911, to the records.
You can read about Mathiesen’s historical chronicles in the WarwickPost.com story, Warwick Inspector Seeks Photo of Patrolman Killed in 1911.
If anyone has information about or photos of McQuarrie, Mathiesen asks that they email him the photos or information to him at Chris.Mathiesen@warwickri.com.
