The Lord Mayor of Belfast recently welcomed a delegation from the Boston Police Department and Massachusetts Justice System to City Hall. The meeting was part of a Sister City visit from Boston to Belfast and the US State Department Rule Of Law Professional Fellows Exchange Program.
Among the delegates were Boston Police Sergeant Samil Silta (pictured above right) who is currently assigned to the Community Service Office at District B-2 (Roxbury). Said Sgt. Silta, "This is a partnership between two world class cities and I'm proud to be here representing our police department."
Belfast City Council entered into a Sister City Agreement with the City of Boston in 2014.
