BPD Photo of the Day: Picture Captures Community Service in Action in a South Boston Housing Development

On Saturday June 18, 2016, an officer assigned to District C-6 (South Boston) was on patrol when he came upon a young boy who was standing alone, bat in hand, tossing a ball up in the air, waiting for someone to play with him.  The boy’s face lit up when the officer approached and offered to throw some batting practice.  This is the kind of hands on community service our officers are doing on a daily basis in neighborhoods throughout Boston.  We applaud the officer for taking time out of his tour of duty to make this boy's day and we thank the person who captured this picture and brought it to our attention.
