BOSTON RESIDENTS ARE URGED TO SWITCH ON THEIR OUTSIDE LIGHTS FOR THE EVENING TO DEMONSTRATE OUR UNITED COMMUNITY EFFORT AGAINST CRIME.

Neighborhood residents, who are involved in crime watch/prevention activities, work cooperatively with the police in order to reduce fear and deter crime in their neighborhoods.  It is these residents that help the Boston Police Department perform our duties in a more effective manner. Our relationships form the basis for successful community policing efforts and strengthen the partnership between the residents of this city and the police. Thank you all for your participation, and we look forward to seeing you there!
