On Wednesday, August 5, 2015, members of the Boston Latin School Ward Fellowship Program visited BPD Headquarters for a meeting with Superintendent Bernard O’Rourke and a tour of the many units housed at One Schroeder Plaza. In addition to learning about various elements of policing, this elite group of students were able to see the inner workings of BPD Operations (E911), the Law Enforcement Command Center, the BPD Crime Lab, Boston Regional Intelligence Center (BRIC), and the Crime Scene Response Unit.
The John William Ward Public Service Fellowship is a program that allows students who have completed their junior or senior year at Boston Latin School obtain summer employment in the office of an elected or appointed public servant in the state or municipal government, judicial system, or major press. Students are selected based on community involvement, academic ability, application essays, and an interview process.
We hope to see these bright young Fellowship students enjoyed their visit, and they return to headquarters in the future as young officers!
