BPD Officers Gladly Respond to a Peaceful Pro-Police Demonstration in Dorchester

BPD Officers Gladly Respond to a Peaceful Pro-Police Demonstration in Dorchester: At about 3:30pm, on Thursday, January 1, 2015, officers from District C-11 (Dorchester) responded to a call for a large group of well-behaved demonstrators peacefully gathered at Adams Corner in Dorchester.  On arrival, officers looked around and began thanking the close to 300 community members/demonstrators who had turned out in cold temps to hold signs that read among other things, “We support the Boston Police” and “Honk if you love the BPD!!!” and “Thank You Boston Police!!!” To all those who organized and attended today’s pro-police rally in Dorchester, the men and women of the Boston Police Department can’t thank you enough.  Said Chief William Gross: “This is how we do things in Boston. We support our community and the community supports us. It’s called community policing and we take great pride in the relationship and partnership that exists between the people of this community and our police department. But, to see this kind of support means a lot to our officers and we're certainly grateful for it.”
