Police Officer Robert Rogerson succumbed to injuries sustained while inspecting a taxi cab on June 24th, 1974, at the 114th Precinct station house in Queens.

During the inspection the taxi cab went out of control on 35th Street, near Austoria Boulevard, striking Officer Rogerson, dragging him 20 feet and pinning him against a utility pole. He was transported to a local hospital suffering from a fractured skull, two broken legs, and other internal injuries. He lapsed into a coma and remained unconscious until passing away.

Officer Rogerson was assigned to the License Division and had served the NYPD for 29 years. He was survived by his wife and two children.

It was my honor to research newspapers, books and magazines and finally find your ID Card Photo in a Spring 3100 magazine from 1974 and make sure your photo was put on this site. I wanted to put a face to your heroism in the Line of Duty. I did the research because you are a brother officer and no matter how many years past, you will always be remembered. Rest Easy Hero.
