BadgeJoseph F. Ferguson (Patrolman)
Chicago Police Department, 2nd District
By Anonymous
Patrolmen Joseph F. Ferguson and Daniel Cambric were patroling their beat on December 27, 1968 when they became suspicious of three men. Noting that one of the three men appeared to have something under his coat, possibly a gun, the officers stopped to investigate. The three were searched prior to questioning. One, Ralph Bellamy, convinced the officers he was not with the other two and was allowed to leave. A gun was found on Allan Sanders and he and Calvin Hayden were placed under arrest. Bellamy then reappeared with a pistol obtained from a barber shop and held it to Ferguson's head. The officers were ordered into the squad car. They refused to comply. Officer Cambric pulled a second revolver. Fire erupted. During the struggle with Bellamy for the gun, Ferguson was fatally shot four times. Officer Cambric was treated for lacerations about the face caused by bullet fragments.

Officer Ferguson left a young wife, son and daughter. His family will always love and miss him.

Bellamy is the only one who still remains in prison. He now comes up for parole every other year instead of every year.

UPDATE: Bellamy died in prison.

BadgeTimothy J. Foley (Constable/Police officer)
Southington Police Department, Southington, CT
By Kathleen Foley McKenna, Manahawkin, NJ
In 1938 my Great Grandfather was struck by a car while on duty and died 4 days later of his injuries. He was an Irish immigrant, devoted to his church, his family and his community. He was a Constable in Southington for 35 yrs before they organized a police department in 1927 of which he became an Officer and wore the #1 badge. His death was also the first for the local force. His son, Edmund J. Foley, also served beside him as a police officer until his retirement in 1949. I never had the honor of knowing either of them but have always honored their memory and am very proud to have their blood coursing through my veins.
