BPD Photo of the Day: Officer Making New Friends on His First Day in a New District

BPD Photo of the Day: It’s always nice to see our officers making positive connections with young people in the neighborhoods we serve. Some connections and relationships take time to build while others are much more immediate. Last night, at the Mayor’s Tree Lighting Ceremony in Lower Mills, Officer Leroy Fernandes was busy making happy memories for a couple of young Saint John Paul Academy students on his very first day on duty at his new assignment in District C-11. The boys loved their time trying on a traditional eight-point hat, holding a real police radio and playing inside the cruiser. Nice job by Officer Fernandes demonstrating community policing in action.
