Police docket from 1870s to go on display

Wanna see what crime was like back in the late 1800s? If so, the Boot Hill Museum in Dodge City will hold a public viewing of the police docket book from the late 1870s next month.

The historic document includes notes and signatures of lawmen Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson. The book was discovered after someone tried to sell it on the Internet.

The book will be on display from 3 to 6:30 p.m. Dec. 7 in the museum's Old House Saloon.
