Great Work Recognized: BPD Officers Garner Commissoner's Commendation for Recovery of Several Firearms


Earlier today, July 12, 2018, officers Robert Robichaud and David Lanteigne, assigned to District B-3, were presented with a Commissioner's Commendation. The officers have been responsible for the recovery of at least 6 firearms within the past 4 months, and have provided a steady flow of intelligence to the district in regards to ongoing gang related violence. The officers perform at a high level, while continuing to work with a B-3 initiated community program at the Department of Youth Services Center as part of their commitment to the youth and the community.

In a most recent incident, the officers were monitoring firearm activity in an impacted area. The officers worked with detectives from the gang unit to develop probable cause for a search warrant. Subsequent to the search warrant, while continuing to monitor that same recently impacted area, they heard a distant gunshot and went towards it, only to find the subject of their investigation. The suspect was found to be in possession of a loaded firearm.

For their continued efforts to address crime on the district and their success in removing firearms from the streets of Boston, they are each hereby awarded a Commissioner’s Commendation.
