In by tiffinfire

November 11th, 1924, the City of Tiffin purchased their first technological leap for the Tiffin Police Department. Call Boxes were purchased to aid the Patrolmen on their beat, enabling them to better communicate with the Police Station. The local taxi service is also enlisted to assist in transporting officers to and from calls for service. Technology starts to be looked at and the latter days of 1924 saw criminalistics used in Tiffin for the first time to solve a robbery. Bloody fingerprints were found at the scene of a robbery at Balls & Hooks. Subsequently, the detection and arrest of one of the robbers came about because of the fingerprints.
