Great Work Recognized: BEST Team Clinician Kimberly Hula and Officer Devon Cornelius Honored at Boston Police Headquarters


Great Work Recognized: Earlier today, on Thursday August 22, 2019, Commissioner Gross presented commendations to BEST Team Clinician Kimberly Hula and Police Officer Devon Cornelius, assigned to District C-11 (Dorchester), for their ongoing efforts to further develop the Boston Emergency Services Team (BEST) Co-Response Program. Over a four-week period, Officer Cornelius and Ms. Hula worked together as a unit dedicated exclusively to calls involving mental health issues, tracking critical information for each response and conducting proactive follow-ups when appropriate.

This partnership has provided immeasurable benefits to our officers as well as the community at large while connecting those in need with necessary services.

For their efforts and tireless dedication, they are each awarded a Commissioner’s Commendation.
