Making a Difference: Public Safety Event Held for Special Needs Children

Today, Thursday, July 30, 2015, the Boston Police Department in collaboration with Boston Fire, Boston EMS, MA Transit Police, MA State Police, and the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department, entertained special needs children during a Public Safety Event at the Ohrenberger Community Center.

Among other units, the BPD Bomb Squad was there to let the kids try on their gear and check out their EOD robots, while the motorcycle officers allowed them to sit on their bikes. But on a 90-degree day like today, the real attraction was the BPD Ice Cream Truck! Overheard by our photographer, from one kid to another, “This is way more fun than playing basketball!” In this weather, we say AMEN to that!
