Last week, on Wednesday, March 21, 2018, students from the Blackstone School in District D-4 (South End) took a field trip out to the Boston Police Academy to meet the recruits, who are set to graduate and hit the streets in Boston communities on April 10.
Thanks to the MBTA, who donated buses, the kids took a ride with BPD and Transit officers out to the Academy. Both the kids and recruits alike had an awesome time getting to know each other. Even though they started the day out all business with a meet-and-greet and Q&A about the recruits, the laws, and their duties, the fun and games broke out when the recruits led the students through some PT and had a contest for who could stand at attention the longest. Nothing like rounding out the day with a pizza party (with pizza provided by Kappy's Pizza!) and a word from the top cop, Police Commissioner Evans!
