BPD in the Community: Cops and Community Members Have a Great Time Kayaking on the Charles River

BPD in the Community: Whether it’s by land or by sea, there are no limits to the lengths the men and women of the BPD are willing to go when it comes to building lasting trust and good will with members of our community. In addition to tried and true relationship building initiatives like Peace Walks, Flashlight Walks, Junior Police Academy, Coffee with a Cop, we now give you Kayaking on the Charles. In fact, this past week, officers from District D-14 organized a wonderful event which attracted well over 100 community members who enjoyed an evening kayaking on the Charles River followed by a BBQ dinner. All who attended the event had a wonderful getting to know our officers. Said one of the officers involved, “This is all about connecting with our community members, hearing they’re concerns while interacting with them in a fun, friendly, informal environment.”  Said another officer, "We’d much rather meet you on the Charles River in a kayak than on Charles Street during a motor vehicle stop." Again, a well-deserved tip of the oar to the officers from District D-14 (Brighton) for thinking outside the box in the BPD's ongoing efforts to strengthen the relationship we enjoy with the community we're sworn to protect and serve.
