Alfred E. Rushmore

 

Chief Rushmore was appointed the first Chief of Police on April 16, 1906. On his second day in office, the area suffered a great earthquake. City records seem to reveal that Chief Rushmore was not connected with the department prior to his appointment, and his name does not appear on the records after the appointment of John M. Boyes, his successor.
