Archie Birtwistle at Wembley 1925.JPGThe Long Arm of the Law!

In this case, the long arm of Charlottetown's Chief of Police in the 1930s.

Archie Birtwistle was called the Old Chief. His time included battles with truants and rumrunners!

And Dutch Thompson stopped by the studio to share some stories from the chief's time in charge of the Charlottetown force.
