CONGRATULATIONS TO BPD RECRUIT CLASS #55-15: On Wednesday, June 29, 2016, the Boston Police Department welcomed 53 new recruits into the rank and file of one of the greatest police departments in the country. As they prepare to hit the streets this weekend, please join us in wishing them the best of safety and success in their ongoing efforts to make Boston one of the safest big cities in America. And when you see our officers, please see them as we see them. Some are moms, some are dads. Some are married. Some are single. Some are gay. Some are straight. Some are white. Some are black. But, all of them are police officers drawn to a noble profession and cause that allows them to protect and serve the citizens of our fine city.
