NOTE: Locations given were at one of the corners of the intersection of the two streets. The list is based on 1917-1919 records. Although the last record of this list was found for 1919, the Patrol Boxes were probably in operation for years afterwards. In 1953, Police Call Boxes were installed for the use of the public to call police in case of emergency or trouble. Soon after the first box was installed on August 18, at the B.& O. Bridge on Montgomery Road, a citizen used it to report being in an automobile accident. Note that these telephone boxes were not the same as the Patrol Boxes, which were for use by the police only.
