BPD in the Community: BPD Officers Honored and Humbled to Provide Police Escort to Little Boy Battling Leukemia in East Boston: Every now and again, the men and women of the Boston Police Department are asked to participate in a truly special, humbling and heartfelt event that allows them to be a part of something bigger than themselves while connecting with and caring for a community member most assuredly in need of some support, comfort and encouragement. For Captain Kelley McCormick and the officers assigned to District A-7 in East Boston, the opportunity to make a difference came yesterday, October 2, 2018, when the faculty and staff at East Boston Central Catholic approached the good Captain and his officers to ask and inquire if they'd be willing to provide a police escort to one of their students, a little boy battling leukemia.
Well, as you can see in the video which is linked below, the men and women of the BPD were more than happy to oblige a request that left a first-grader feeling like a million bucks and our officers even richer. And, to this young boy and his family, the men and women of the BPD would like them to know, we're always here to lend a helping hand or ride to school.
