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.

of each officer's End of Watch
Our Solemn Obligation:
Thirty-two men who honorably served this city did not go home to their families at the end of their shift. Their watch ended instead with the ultimate sacrifice. They were faithful to their duties, and it is our solemn obligation to honor their memory and sacrifice.Their loss has had a profound impact on our community, the police officers who called them brother, and most especially, the families they left behind.
We honor these men, and all who have fallen in the service of others. We also honor Falko, our fallen canine officer, who gave his life to protect his partner and her fellow officers from a violent criminal intent on doing harm.
