Today, Thursday, September 11, 2014, Commissioner’s Commendations were awarded to District E-13 Officers Dave Juba, Luciano Cirino-Ayuso, William Moran, and Jackson Hernandez: On July 16, 2014 Officers Cirino-Ayuso and Juba were on foot patrol in the area of 940 Parker Street in Jamaica Plain when they observed an individual acting suspiciously by constantly moving back and forth toward a group of teens in the area. Due to multiple gun and drug incidents in this area, they approached the individual to obtain his name. At this time, the suspect became evasive and began moving in an odd manner as though to conceal an item in his pocket. The individual was asked to remove his hands from his pockets several times to which he refused. The suspect then pulled away from officers and fled on foot. During the foot pursuit, Officers Juba and Cirino-Ayusa were able to place the suspect under arrest. At this time, Officers Moran and Hernandez arrived on scene and retraced the suspect’s direction of flight. During their search, Officers Moran and Hernandez were able to recover a Colt .45 firearm in the area of 928 Parker Street. For their keen observations and perseverance, we thank Officers Juba, Cirino-Ayuso, Moran, and Hernandez.
