Boston Police Academy Class 57-17 Run to Headquarters

This morning, Friday, April 6, 2018, Boston Police Academy Class 57-17 completed the traditional run from the Boston Police Academy to Boston Police Headquarters. The run —which is completed by the recruits a few days before their graduation from the Academy— winds over approximately 8 miles through a number of Boston’s neighborhoods and is symbolic of the distance the recruits have come in six months of training and the transformations they have made from civilian to police officer. Upon arrival at headquarters, the recruits lay a wreath at the Boston Police Officer Memorial to remind them of those that have paved the way and come before them. Congratulations, Class 57-17, you’ve come a long way!
