CARPENTER, Daniel, police inspector, born in New York City about 1815: died in New York City, 15 November, 1866. He joined the municipal police of New York in 1847, and was appointed captain and assigned to the 5th ward, which soon became noted. under his management, for order and quiet. His services were retained on the organization of the Metropolitan police district in 1857, and he became deputy superintendent. Through his exertions the force was rapidly organized, and has attained a high state of efficiency. For several months during 1859 he was acting general superintendent, subsequent to the resignation of Frederick A. Tall-madge. In 1860, on the abolition of the deputy superintendentship, he became senior inspector, and continued as such until his death. During the "draft ricts" in New York in July, 1863, Supt. John A. Kennedy having been injured, the command of the police again devolved upon Inspector Carpenter, and the suppression of the riots was largely due to the energy and firmness displayed by him at that time.
