The members of the Boston Police Department would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of Officer Wenjian Liu of the New York City Police Department, who was shot and killed along with his partner Officer Rafael Ramos in Brooklyn on December 20, 2014. Today, Sunday, January 4, 2015, hundreds of Boston police officers and personnel will travel to New York City for Liu’s funeral and to show support for our brothers and sisters in blue. With heavy hearts, the BPD keeps Liu, Ramos, and the NYPD in our thoughts and prayers, and we remember them for their courage and service to their city. Rest in peace, Officers; you will not be forgotten.
