BPD In The Community: Students at Local School Get Safe Driving Tips from One of Boston’s Finest

Earlier this week, Officer Jerry Smart from the District B-2 (Roxbury) Community Service Office took part in the first ever Driver’s Permit Workshop held at Madison Park High School.  The program was developed by Project REACH in an effort to teach and reinforce safe driving habits to young students and guide them through the formal Registry of Motor Vehicles testing process. 

Officer Smart was praised by the program coordinator who stated “During the planning stages – we thought that a Boston Police Officer presentation towards the end of the class would be the “icing on the cake” and it surely was!  The students were riveted to Jerry from the get go and there was no end to their questions.  The discussions that Jerry had with the students were invaluable.”

The BPD would like to wish the young people who participated in this program the best of luck as they move through the process of acquiring their permits and thank Officer Smart for his continued contributions to the community he serves.
