BPD Photo of the Day: Sergeant Performing a Detail at Boston Children's Hospital Gets a Surprise K-9 Partner for the Day

Earlier today, on Thursday July 5, 2018, one of Boston’s Finest was approached by a family who was rushing to get their son into Boston Children’s Hospital. Sergeant Sam Silta was performing a detail at the facility and was able to quickly assist the family with parking. The family was in a panic because they had their black lab named Olive with them and didn’t know what to do with her. Sergeant Silta offered to keep Olive with him for the duration of his detail, welcoming her into his air-conditioned cruiser. Olive got some fresh air walking around the hospital campus and even made a few new friends who stopped to pet her. We would like to pass along our well wishes to the family and assure them that Olive is in good hands!!! Well done, Sergeant Silta!!!
