1910 Annual Police Parade

Brooklyn "cops" carried  off high honors in the annual police parade in 
Manhattan today.  Before the arrival of the parade, considerable merriment 
was created in front of the grand stand by the appearance of a 5-year-old boy 
dressed in a uniform corresponding in all details to that of an inspector.  
The youngster strutted about in great glee and told everybody that he was 
going to be a big "cop" someday.  He said his name is Sidney LEVY, of 
Eighty-third Street and Thirteenth Avenue, Borough Park.  For the first time 
in the history of the parade several of the battalions composed of veterans 
of thirty-five years or over carried guidons and flags.  These presented to 
the men at the Seventh Regiment Armory last Tuesday.

       The order of the parade was as follows:
       On the staff of Chief Inspector Max F. SCHMITTBERGER, who headed the 
parade, were Inspector JOHN J. MURTHA, of the Sixteenth District, chief of
