BPD in the Community: BPD Officers Help Kick Off Metro Lacrosse League’s Spring Season!!!

This past week, several members of the BPD – including Chief Gross and Deputy Nora Baston – stopped by Harambee Park in Dorchester to help kick off the start of the Metro Youth Lacrosse League’s spring season. MetroLacrosse is a non-profit organization teaching over 700 inner-city kids how to play the game of lacrosse. The league’s mission is to cultivate and foster fair play, character development, respect and good sportsmanship among urban youth and teens through their participation in the team sport of lacrosse. Said Deputy Baston: “As we all know, sports is all about life lessons and, thanks to MetroLacrosse, the kids in the program are learning a lot of them, especially, the importance of being a good sport, teammate and citizen. As we said to the kids, whether you’re playing lacrosse or being a police officer, knowing how to work together, work as a team and support your teammates is an essential key to success.” The program is free to all of its participants.
