Thank You for Your Service, Captain Ivens!

COMMISSIONER EVANS (RIGHT) CONGRATULATES CAPTAIN PAUL IVENS ON HIS RETIREMENT

Yesterday, December 31, 2016 at 4:00 PM, retiring Captain Paul Ivens led the final roll call of his career at District D-4 (South End). In addition to the first half shift officers, also in attendance were Police Commissioner William Evans, Captain Ivens' wife and family, and dozens of officers who had the privilege of working with the Captain over his 37 year career. Among many notable assignments, the Captain spent time in the Explosive Ordinance Unit and was the commander at the Marathon Finish Line in 2013. Yesterday in front of a packed house, he had the honor of calling his daughter's name, as she just graduated with the last class from the Boston Police Academy and is currently assigned at District D-4. To Captain Ivens, we say, "Thank you for your dedicated service to the City of Boston, and enjoy your well-deserved retirement!"
