Cops-&-Kids Hoopin’ It Up on District C-11 in Dorchester

This past week officers from District C-11 (Dorchester) along with members of the Youth Violence Strike Force (including Manny Canuto & D Arajuo) took to the hardwood at the Colonel Daniel J. Marr Boys & Girls Club in Dorchester to take on members of the Cristo Rey Boys High School Basketball team. And, while the game was less about the final score, if you had money on the boys in blue, you would’ve left with some green in your pocket as the BPD Team scored the victory by a score of 60 – 56. After the game, Captain Richard Sexton offered the following: “Everybody who played tonight left the gym a winner. This game was certainly less about the final score and a whole lot more about building relationships with the kids in a fun, competitive environment. Games like tonight are great because they allow my officers and the teens who played tonight to see each other in a different light. And, hopefully, the kids get to see that our officers are people just like them.”
