Boston Police Officers Team Up With BU Students to Beautify Allston/Brighton

Under the leadership of Captain Wayne Lanchester, the Boston Police Department District D-14 (Allston/Brighton) Community Service Office has developed a 5-point-plan to resolve a problem "hot spot" in the Glenville Avenue, Allston Street, Commonwealth Avenue, and Ringer Park corridor. In addition to working with our partners at the Boston Parks Department, Public Works Department, various property managers, and members of the Neighborhood Crime Watch, the Boston Police Department has once again teamed up with the Boston University Community Service Center. This year, the D-14 Community Service Office accepted the assistance of over 80 Boston University students in turning the Ringer Park Urban Wilds Path into an "oasis of beauty" during BU’s Global Day of Service Event. Sergeant Mike O'Hara and Police Officer Jerry Ajemian led the effort as the students pitched in to clear debris, rake leaves, and begin the new pathway of wood chips. The newly improved path will be an inviting pathway for dog walkers, the elderly, and the good citizens of Allston and Brighton. The partnership between Boston University and the D-14 Community Service Office is making Allston and Brighton a better place to live, work, and visit.
