In 1867, Ohio legislature passed the Metropolitan Police Law which required a full time paid police force for the City of Toledo. At 8 AM on April 27, 1867, the "MP's" as they were respectfully called by the public, took charge of policing the City of Toledo.
Old Sparky Exhibit
There were 17 people in Toledo-Lucas County whose convictions lead them to the electric chair. Each story is uniquely interesting, as well as hauntingly compelling. Capital punishment is a particularly harsh and tragic reality, and the crimes associated with it are equally tragic.
