Residents are invited to hear from each other about public safety and policing in our community at the JPNC Public Safety Subcommittee on Police and Police Procedures on July 19. "Since convening, the Police Procedures Subcommittee has recommended a number of names to the [Office of Police Accountability and Transparency] Civilian Review Board, is working to create a neighborhood-wide Statement of Values for Public Safety, and has invited speakers to better understand legislation and proposals related to policing as part of our work. Events like this Listening Session will help us make sure our work benefits the entire JP community," said Paige Sparks, a member of the subcommittee. Boston Police District E-13 personnel have been attending the bi-weekly meetings of the subcommittee, but will not be participating in the event. "This is meant to be a community conversation, and therefore [Boston Police District] E-13 officers have expressed support in sitting this one out," said Sparks.
The officers of Boston Police District District E-13 delivered Christmas toys and gifts as part of its "Polar Express" to more than 250 families in Jamaica Plain and Roxbury on Dec. 18. The gifts were made possible through generous donations from the BPD officers of E-13, the Police Athletic League, and community partners like Tree of Life, Jamaica Hills Association, and more.
Throughout Thanksgiving week, Boston Police District E-13 officers delivered more than 200 meals to local families. Thank you to our hard working, dedicated officers. Also big thanks to our community partners, including Boston Police Athletic League, Tree of Life, Mayor’s Office, Mass Housing, Families in Need-Mary Mulvey Jacobson, Roche Bros., Children’s Hospital, and Tufts Medical.
