Robert Montgomery Watson came to Tahoe in 1875 as a logger and became the town’s first constable in 1906. After Constable Watson’s death in 1932 he was replaced by Swedish immigrant Harry Johanson, known to the locals as Harry Jo. After taking over as constable, Harry Jo also became Tahoe’s first deputy sheriff, deputy tax collector and deputy coroner, covering his beat in the summer by horseback and by dogsled in the winter. The Tahoe station opened on September 30, 1960 in anticipation of the growth that would be created by the 1960 winter Olympics in Squaw Valley. Harry Johanson retired as Constable in 1967.
