Making a Difference

On Thursday, April 16, 2015, Boston Police District D-4 (South End) officers were visited by a group of 3rd grade students from the Blackstone School. The 8- and 9-year-old children presented the officers with homemade safety posters that they had crafted earlier in the week. The kids also performed a skit with a public safety message for other children: NEVER TOUCH A GUN! In the skit, the students found a discarded firearm in the schoolyard and acted out the appropriate and safe actions to take—don’t touch that gun and tell an adult. The officers were so happy that the 3rd graders visited and even more impressed with their knowledge about safety.
