BPD in the Community: With the ongoing COVID-19 health emergency and the holidays approaching, the BPD has been tasked with coming up with new, innovative ways to interact with our community members as evidenced by the Twelfth Annual Shop with a Cop Heroes and Helpers. Celebrated virtually for the first time ever, Mayor Walsh, Commissioner Gross, and officers from all over the city partnered with the Police Athletics League and Target, to make sure our local families did not miss out on Christmas in 2020. The toys were picked up at Target and wrapped by staff in the Commissioner’s Office and then distributed to each District Station where they were hand delivered to hundreds of grateful families in need throughout the City of Boston.
