In 1872, Fiske A. Thayer became Amherst's first nightwatchman and lighter of street lamps. He was paid $2 per night to patrol the streets from 9 pm to 6 am, 351 nights of the year. Thayer was also required to light the street lamps, care for them and put them out.
Captain Ron Young of the Amherst Police will present the origins of the Amherst police service and the early days of policing in Amherst. He brings his abiding interest in Amherst Police history and firsthand knowledge of what it means to serve. Young joined the department as a community service officer in 1987 and currently serves as the department's captain in charge of administration.
