Special thanks to NBC10’s Ally Donnelly for her recent tribute to Officer Jeremiah Hurley who was killed in the line of duty approximately 27 years ago protecting and serving the citizens of Boston. On October 28, 1991, the 23-year veteran, who at the time was a member of the BPD’s Bomb Unit, lost his life as a result of injuries suffered while handling and attempting to diffuse an explosive device found in a Roslindale neighborhood. In June of 2017, the BPD Harbor Unit recognized Hurley’s service and sacrifice by naming one of the department’s patrol boats in his honor. Fittingly, Hurley’s daughter, Leanne, and son, David, both Boston Police Officers, now patrol the waterways of Boston in the very boat named after their father.
