The Boston Police Department would like to extend an immensely heartfelt and gracious thank you to our local Boston media outlets for their extensive coverage on BPD Officer and COVID-19 survivor, Omar Borges. Each media outlet conducted an interview with Officer Borges where they spoke with him about his battle with COVID-19. Here at the BPD, we hope to remind our community members of the risks first responders face on a daily basis as we continue to navigate our way through the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

Below is a list of articles highlighting the coverage of Officer Borges:
