Officers from the Bureau of Community Engagement wrapped up a summer program for youth this past week. Act up with 5-0 is a  Boston Police arts program that incorporates monologues, scene work, poetry,  videography dance, visual arts, photography, and various other elements of art in an environment where police and youth are able to express themselves and overcome trauma through artistic creativity. Last week the Act Up with 5-0 concluded their summer academy with a celebration where youth were able to perform, share their voices and receive certificates. 

The Boston Police would like to thank all of the participants in this program for their work this summer and wish all participants a safe start to their school year.
