Today, Sunday June 21, 2015, as families everywhere take time to celebrate Father's Day, we would like to offer our gratitude to those officers on duty today, the fathers who are giving their time on this special day to serve and protect the people of the City of Boston. Said one officer whose father retired from the BPD in 2012, "I became a cop because my dad was a cop - he's my hero. He's the reason I'm out here. He showed me the way. I hope he's half as proud of me as I am of him." To all of the dads who are working on this Father's Day - police officer or otherwise - we say thank you and Happy Father's Day.
