BPD in the Community: Officers Raise $40,000 for Roadway Safety Signage in Brighton

A big "thank you" is in order for Captain Wayne Lanchester of District D-14 (Brighton) and his Community Service Officers for their efforts in securing funding for pedestrian, bicycle, and traffic safety equipment in the community of Brighton. Their efforts earned a $40,000 grant from the Boston College Neighborhood Improvement Fund that will provide electronic, educational traffic signage for Brighton. On hand for the check presentation were (from left to right) State Representative Kevin Honan, Father William P. Leahy-President of Boston College, Captain Wayne Lanchester-D14, Mayor Martin J. Walsh, Community Service Sergeant Michael C. O'Hara and City Councilor Mark Ciommo. Our officers are committed to making our streets safe for all to travel while enhancing the quality of life in Brighton and Allston.
