The Boston Police Department is a world class organization, and I am deeply honored and humbled that Mayor Menino entrusted me with its leadership.
As a Boston police officer for over thirty one years, I have seen first hand how the Department has evolved. Today, we are a very well trained, well resourced, and incredibly professional organization committed to serving and protecting our residents, visitors, businesses and institutions.
We are constantly striving to build, strengthen and improve our relationship with the community. Over the past several years we have made remarkable strides in reducing crime and addressing quality of life in our neighborhoods. We have formed lasting partnerships and strengthened relationships with the community. Tremendous work has been done, but there is still much to do to make all of our neighborhoods safer.
