Some Well-Deserved Recognition

The Boston Globe profiles Franklin Miller, our 2006 Crimefighter of the Year Award recipient and a leader in the Wendover Street area.

“It's no secret there are a couple of Cape Verdean entities feuding with each other, and Wendover became one of the spots where that has played out," (Boston Police Commissioner) Goslin said. ``But Franklin, he was smart enough to make a quick assessment of the neighborhood when he moved in, and he found people who wanted to stay in the neighborhood and he pulled them together. He is a huge asset, and the message he and other residents are sending gets out among the gangbangers and trouble makers."
