James A. Terhune was appointed Chief of Police, of the five member force (Peter Ryan, John Markham, P.J. Quirk,Thomas Conklin and Richard Baldwin) in 1896 under the "pre" official administration of Daniel A. Currie, (i.e. prior to the incorporation of the City), [2]. He served until Frank Titus was named Chief, and the city appointed several new officers bringing the force to the number of 7 men, after only two years on the job, by Mayor Elbert A. Brinckerhoff in 1899. After he left the Department, he remained in the City and was apparently working as a "Painter" [1].
