A police committee was set up in May of 1894 to hire a police officer for the Borough. In June 1894, the committee reported to the Borough Council that they “highly recommended Mr. B.A. Fox as he is the only applicant whose duties it shall be to patrol the streets of the borough between the hours of 11PM and sunrise”. Officer Fox started his job on July 1, 1894 and received a salary of $40 a month. His duties also included attending to the town’s street lamps.
