Thank You for Thanking Us and Reminding Us that the Future Still Burns Bright in Boston

Commissioner Evans was having coffee early this morning (Wednesday, July 20, 2016) outside the Dudley Café at 15 Warren Street in Roxbury when a young family approached and asked if they could take a picture with the Commish. As you can tell by the enclosed photo, the Commish was more than happy to oblige. Best of all, during the interaction, the father of the young family turned to the Commish and, after thanking him and promising to pray for the safety of all our officers during these incredibly dangerous and difficult times, shared with him the fact that his 11 year-old nephew Jeremiah informed him that one day he hopes to be a wrestler, football player and a police officer. To Jeremiah – we say: “If the wrestling or football playing careers don’t work out, there’s always room for a great kid on one of the greatest police departments in the country.”
