Internal Memo From Police Commissioner Davis

A MESSAGE FROM THE POLICE COMMISSIONERI would like to take this opportunity to commend each member of the Department who was involved in the excellent planning and execution of this year’s St. Patrick’s Day parade. The parade was a great success and your efforts have received numerous accolades from the South Boston community. The collaborative efforts put forth by personnel on the street and the Unified Command Center (UCC) resulted in creating and maintaining the family-friendly atmosphere that the City and the South Boston community had hoped to provide for parade-goers. Officers on the street quickly and appropriately addressed issues that arose in a professional and efficient manner. Through past training and thorough preparation, the festive crowd was handled with precision and teamwork. I would like to extend my gratitude for all of your hard work and your contribution to a remarkably successful event. As demonstrated on parade day, the Boston Police Department is comprised of the most talented and committed individuals in law enforcement. I congratulate you on a job well done! Lastly, I would like to address the rumor that I am being considered for a federal position. This rumor is false. I am personally proud to have the opportunity to lead this extraordinary organization and I look forward to our future successes. Edward F. Davis Police Commissioner
