Harry E. Vincent

End of Watch

December 13, 1924

Patrol Inspector Harry E. Vincent and Senior Patrol Inspector James E. Renshaw were inspecting northbound traffic near Oceanside, California. An automobile traveling in a southerly direction missed the detour and struck down Inspectors Vincent and Renshaw who were unconscious. A bystander transported the Inspectors to a clinic in Oceanside where Renshaw was not seriously injured but Patrol Inspector Vincent was in serious condition with a fractured skull and unable to recover from his injuries.
