Excerpts from Sargent’s Arrest Log

Excerpts from a ledger kept by the Police Department that recorded arrests by date. Information includes date of arrest, name of the arresting officer, the offender’s name, occupation, gender, nationality, marital status, religion, address, offense, date of discharge, and other remarks such as whether or not the offender was put to trial, made to pay a fine, released, etc. The excerpted pages are from June 1-26, 1919. This list includes the names of several leaders of the General Strike.

Excerpts from minutes of the Board of Police Commissioners regarding the General Strike

Several pages from a bound volume of the minutes of the Board of Police Commissioners between 23 May and 26 June 1919 (page 80: May 23; page 88: May 29; pages 115-116: June 9; pages 125-126: June 11; page 155: June 25; page 156: June 26). Some of the pages have copies of other records pasted to them from other dates. The pages are excerpts and, as a result, some pages contain information that is either continued from the previous page or continues on the next, but is not included. These excerpts were selected by the Winnipeg Police Museum and deal primarily with staffing during the General Strike, including the dismissal of and reinstatement of employees, and the Slave Pact loyalty pledge.
