Great Work Recognized: On Wednesday September 18, 2019, the Boston Business Community held their 7th Annual “Honoring Our Heroes Night” at the Hotel Commonwealth in Kenmore Square to benefit the Boston Police Foundation. During the ceremony, members of the BPD’s Peer Support Unit were honored for their ongoing efforts to support the health and well-being of Boston’s Finest.  The Boston Police Peer Support Unit was created to help police officers better understand and process the emotional and physical stressors that adversely impact their health and wellness given their steady exposure to traumatic experiences including line-of-duty shootings, high-speed pursuits, physical altercations, injuries and personal tragedies.
