Messaae from 




Dear Fellow Bostonians: 

Publie safety is one of my greatest concerns both as Mayor, and as a 
life-long resident of Boston. That is why I am committed to providing 
you with a Police Department that is supplied with the personnel, 
eciuipment, technology and skills to remain among the most effective 
municipal public safety agencies in the nation. 

Since I took office, I have authorized the expansion of the police 
force by an additional 531 officers plus 50 more through 1997, and the 
acquisition of over $20 million in field equipment and computer 
technology to ensure that our officers have the state-of-the-art tools to 
handle the increasingly difficult problems of crime and violence within 
the neighborhoods of Boston. 

Boston is a great city. I have experienced all of its joys and sorrows 
during the past few decades. At each turn, however, I have been 
awestruck by the resiliency, vitality, intellect and compassion of its 
citizens. Boston will always be one of America's venerable cities. It is the 
guardian of this nation's history. It blends the old with the new like no 
other place in the country. Nevertheless, what makes Boston such an 
extraordinary American city is its people. We come from all walks of life 
and ethnic origins. Bostonians are hard-working, patriotic, family- 
oriented citizens with the spirit to overcome adversity and share in the 
triumphs of life. 1 am always proud to tell people that I am from 
Boston. There is no other city like this in America, and no place that I 
would rather live. 

The Boston Police Department exemplifies what this city represents 
- tradition, honor, commitment, strength, and innovation. Our police 
officers have dedicated themselves to providing public safety. They 
uniquely the daily triumphs and tragedies of the human experience, and 
stand ready to sacrifice themselves for their fellow man. The hard work 
that these officers do is reflected in the crime statistics for the city. Crime 
in the city of Boston is at a twenty-five year low. 1 am confident that these 
numbers will continue to fall because of the dedication and 
perseverance of our police force. 

I will always do all that I can to suppon the efforts of our police 
officers. They are among the finest public servants in the city, and 
together we will build a safer and more enjoyable city for Boston's 
residents and visitors alike. 



Sincerely, 




,-^^::^<»>*^-»r 



Thomas M. Menino 
Mayor of Boston 






Message from 



It is my pleasure to present the Boston Police Department 1995 
Annual Report. Our 14 1st year was a time of growth and change, as 
the organization continued its implementation of Neighborhood 
Policing. The results were reduced serious crime across the city and 
growing trust between the Department and the people we serve. We are 
delivering on the promise of partnership government that Mayor 
Thomas Menino articulated in his State of the City message in January of 
1995. 

We hit the ground running by undertaking a comprehensive 
Strategic Planning and Community Mobilization Project (STCMP) that 
involved over 400 community stakeholders and first-line police officers, 
organized into 16 teams. Every district and neighborhood took part. All 
went forward under the banner of the Mission Statement adopted at the 
outset: 

We dedicate ourselves to work in parttiership with the community 
to fight crime, reduce fear and improve the quality of life in every 
neighborhood. Our mission is Neighborhood Policing. 

Through the SP&CMP we enabled neighborhood residents, officers 
and other stakeholders to identify and prioritize the goals for public 
safety in Boston for 1995 and beyond. We are working together in 
dozens upon dozens of partnerships, at every level. Early indications at 
the close of the year suggested that we will see important progress on 
these goals in 1996. 

One of the keys to our early success has been support from the 
federal and state levels. Important, ongoing investments have been 
made by the US Department of Justice, the US Department of the 
Treasury and its Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and by the 
state Executive Office of Public Safety. The Boston delegations in the US 
Congress and in the Great and General Court of the Commonwealth 
have supported these grants. We look to continue to build these 
partnerships in 1996. 

Boston was served in 1995 by a corps of dedicated and honest police 
officers, who worked, true to their oaths, to the highest standards of 
fairness and integrity. They were privileged to serve a richly diverse and 
vibrant city, whose dedicated neighborhood leaders worked in 
partnership with them. This report is their story.

Police Commissioner 



While eveiy police department in the nation is struggling with the 
knowledge that community policing is necessary for safer, less fearful 
cities, the range of approaches and results is wide. Upon assuming 
office in early 1994, Commissioner Evans gave top priority to this 
transformation in policing and embarked upon a strategic planning 
process designed to chart a comprehensive approach to development of 
a citywide implementation plan for Neighborhood Policing in every 
aspect of police work in Boston. His plan was to develop a policing 
strategy that would reduce crime and fear by pushing ownership and 
accountability to the street-level. But there existed no vehicle, no 
applicable method, for getting a large, diverse city and its police 
depanment to move from a reactive to a proactive approach. The 
principles that the Department embraced needed to be embodied in our 
programming, and this became the challenge. Key components of 
Bostons pro-active approach to policing: 

• Increased ownership and accountability among command 
and patrol staff 

• Incorporating prevention and problem solving approaches at 
every level of operations and, 

• Building partnerships with stakeholders on planning and tactical 
issues. 

The Strategic Planning project was the vehicle developed to enable 
the police department and the community to make the shift to 
Neighborhood Policing together. It was the road map for the thoughtful, 
inclusive and flexible planning process necessary for successful change 
in the big-city context. The project enabled the Department: 

• To set a well defined direction and clear vision for the depanment 
and for each District and Bureau. This vision has widely shared 
"buy-in" as it is created by those most affected by it — the officers 
and city residents, businesses, stakeholders, etc. 

• To create the strategic plan to shift to a pro-active style of policing; a 
Neighborhood Policing strategy that reduces crime and fear by 
identifying and addressing community priorities, in partnership 
with the community and other stakeholders, 

• To articulate a set of goals and objectives, and a city^ade public 
safety plan, with which to achieve this new direction, and to involve 
line police personnel and citizen-stakeholders in the process of 
creating that plan. 



• To deepen the partnerships with the neighborhoods and all neigh 
borhood stakeholders, and to understand the community is its 
own greatest asset for its defense and improvement. 

• To acquire new planning and problem solving skills for 
individual managers, the department as an organization, and for 
community partners. 

The project was designed and began in early 1994, through the 
Office of Strategic Planning and Resource Development. By the end of 
1995, the results were unmistakably positive. All of the above objectives 
are being addressed. Progress is visible through the publication of the 
sixteen volume Strategic Plan for Neighborhood Policing and the many 
innovative community partnerships currently working to achieve the 
plan's goals. 

This annual report celebrates the dedication and successes of the 
community residents, businesses, police officers, universities, non-profit 
agencies, religious leaders and others who made the Strategic Planning 
Project into a blueprint for Neighborhood Policing; and who will 
continue to work together to solve local problems whenever they arise.

Neiqhborhood Crime Watch 



i^« 




m luin Mnniversiiry 



GOALS FOR 1996: 

• To train 3,500 Boston residents in crime watch techniques 

• To conduct 250 crime watch meetings in Boston residences 

• To help 70 new crime watch groups to form 

• To put on a citywide National Night Out celebration for the 11th 
year in a row and to be recognized nationally for this effort - and to 
continue to reach out to neighboring cities to bring them this effort. 

• To have additional staff members receive certification in crime 
prevention from Mass Crime Prevention Officers Assoc. 

• To continue to support crime watch groups where the Ten Most 
Wanted Task Force has targeted houses for closing and 
rehabilitation 

• To go on-line through the Bosnet Web site so that crime watch 
members can communicate with each other and with city agencies 
on the internet 

• To explore a business district crime watch program 

• To continue to work with and develop corporate relationships 

ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1995 

In 1995 the Neighborhood Crime Watch Unit celebrated 10 years of 
police and residents working together for safer neighborhoods. 

• In 1995, the staff of the Neighborhood Crime Watch Unit conducted 
274 crime watch meetings in Boston residences, helped 72 new 
crime watch groups get started, trained 3,724 residents in crime 
watch techniques, and conducted or attended 240 related 
meetings. 

• National Night Out was celebrated for the 10th year in a row and 
Boston ranked 5th in the country for excellence of events. The Unit 
presided over a poster contest and awards luncheon "Together We 
Make A Safer Neighborhood" for Boston Students; a "Salute to the 
Neighborhoods" reception where Crime Fighter of the Year, Top 
Ten Crime Watch Groups of the Year, and Friend of the 
Neighborhood Crime Watch Unit awards were announced; a dozen 
neighborhood gatherings including Cambridge and Quincy and a 
cross-city multi-vehicle cavalcade led by Mayor Thomas Menino and 
Police Commissioner Paul Evans. 



S^^^S 



• Unit Staff were consulted by police departments in Cambridge, 
Quincy, Lawrence, Lowell, Tewksbuiy and Greenfield Wheelock 
College, Northeastern University, Boston Conservatory of Music and 
Chamberlain Junior College. Staff also conducted trainings for two 
classes of Boston Police Student Officers at the Boston Police 
Academy. 

Citizen or citizen's group in partnership with 
district: 

Eva DiMaggio is a member of the Chelsea St. Crime Watch in 
East Boston which was named a Top Ten Crime Watch Group of the 
Year. Over the course of a year she and her neighbors worked with Capt. 
Robert Cunningham of District A-7 to reclaim their sense of 
neighborhood. The street was experiencing illegal liquor sales, drug 
dealing, prostitution, noise and general disruption. It finally erupted 
one night into a full scale street fight with tire irons flying past residents 
awakened from their sleep. Much of the trouble emanated from one 
house inhabited by unsupervised teenagers, prostitutes and drug 
dealers. The crime watch group worked closely with the Crime Watch 
Unit, the District and the city to shut the house down so that once again 
they could enjoy their homes in peace and safety. 

Ron Cheney is the founder of the East Springfield Street 
Crime Watch in the South End which worked with Capt. Charles 
Celluci and Police Officers from District D-4 and Boston's Ten Most 
Wanted Task Force to stop drug dealing and prostitution going on in a 
condominium on the street. The crime watch group worked closely with 
Judi Wright of the Crime Watch Unit and collected information for the 
police who were able to arrest the drug dealing owner of the condo, get 
the unit foreclosed, sold, and renovated.

The Boston Police Department's Strategy to Prevent Youth 
Violence: Prevention, intervention and Enforcement 

The Boston Police Department's strategy to prevent youth violence 
mirrors the Departments philosophy on neighborhood policing. Boston 
police officers, in their daily interactions with youth, operate within the 
principles of prevention, problem solving and partnership. Prevention 
through the use of district and community based education and 
recreation programming. Problem solving by communicating with youth 
in a listening mode in order to get to the root of problems and create 
alternatives for young people; and partnerships by consistently working 
with other stakeholders in the community to identify resources for youth. 

Prevention 

The Youth Service Program began in January of 1993 and has 
effectively reached out to over 10,000 in - school youth. Currently the 
BPD has 15 Youth Service Officers assigned to the ten District stations, 
five of whom work in the evening hours. Each officer interacts with the 
District's neighborhood schools, youth service agencies and the 
neighborhood youth through a variety of prevention and recreation 
programs. 

Intervention 

The Youth Service Providers Network is a Network of youth 
service providers in the Roxbury, Mattapan and Dorchester 
neighborhoods who have come together in partnership with the Boston 
Police Department to better serve at risk youth and their families. The 
member agencies within the Network have developed a Case 
Management Referral Mechanism which allows police officers to 
serve youth and families through just one phone call for a direct referral 
to a service agency. The officer simply calls the Network's District based 
Licensed Social Worker (LSW) with the name and phone number of a 
youth in need of service, and the LSW reaches out to the youth and 
family to develop a service provision plan with the Network service 
providing agencies. 

The Child Witness to Violence Project is a partnership between 
District C-11 police officers and Boston City Hospital pediatricians, 
emergency room staff and child psychiatrists. Police are trained to assess 
the impact of trauma on child and family, and to re-stabilize the family 
system in order to support the child. Within the training police are 
familiarized with services available and taught how to make the 



appropriate referrals. The services offered to youth and their families 
are evaluation, intervention, follow up and referrals for long term 
services. 

The Summer of Opportunity 
is a collaboration of the Boston 
Police Department, John 
Hancock Financial Services and 
Northeastern University. It 
consists of a thirty-eight week job 
training and life skills program 
for 40 gang involved 16 and 17 
year old youth. After job training, 
youth are provided with job 
experience through summer jobs 
and internships. These are well 
paying entry level jobs that 
demonstrate that its possible to 
make a decent living without 
turning to crime. In addition 
youth are given leadership 
training and mentoring. 

Enforcement 

Firearms & Violence: Juveniles, Illicit Markets and Fear - In 

order to develop a gun strategy the BPD collaborated with Harvard's 
Kennedy School of Government, U.S. Attorney's Office, A.T.F., Suffolk 
County D.A.'s Office, Department of Probation, and the Boston 
Streetworkers program. This Study, Firearms & Violence: Juveniles, Illicit 
Markets and Fear, found that 12-17 year olds are the fastest growing 
group of people carrying weapons in Boston. In addition to 
determining the target population, the goal of this project is to develop 
sound strategies to affect both the supply of, and the demand for, 
firearms among Boston's youth population. While this is a work in 
progress, it has already produced significant enforcement successes. 

Operation Scrap Iron - One of our most successful strategies for 
dealing with firearms is Operation Scrap Iron. This is an on-going 
operation in conjunction with A.T.F., the U.S. Attorney's Office and the 
District Attorney's Office. The objective is to target and successfully 
prosecute individuals involved in the illegal transportation and sales of 
firearms in the City of Boston. With the increase in gun use among 
juveniles we see this program as very important to reducing youth 
violence.

INFORMATION SYSTEMS GROUPS 

GOALS FOR 1996: 

Provide the technological infrastructure that allows officers 
conducting policing activities to access timely and reliable information; 
Through the use of computer technology, aid the Boston Police 
Department in its assiduous effort to fully implement neighborhood 
policing in the City of Boston. 

ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1995: 
Mobile Data Terminals: 

The use of mobile data terminal (MDT) to link officers in patrol cars 
to the computer aided dispatch system is being implemented in the 
Boston Police Department. To date, Police District C-11, C-6, D-4 and 
D-14 are using this innovative piece of technology to communicate with 
the dispatch system. In addition, the MDT system puts the Boston Police 
Department on the path of accomplishing a vital objective in it's 
Neighborhood Policing effort: the Same Officer patrolling and 
responding to the Same Neighborhood. 

Computer Aided Dispatch: 

To ensure that the Boston Police 
Department possesses the best 
possible computer technology to 
support its neighborhood policing 
efforts, the Computer Aided Dispatch 
(CAD) system was programmed to 
provide a variety of information to 
the dispatcher during dispatch 
operations. The police warning, 
address history, gun license warning 
and warrant information files are 
only a few of the creative features 
installed in the new CAD system. 
Also, as a part of phase II of the CAD 
implementation process, the system 
provides 9-1-1 calltakers with a 
projected time of assignment for low 
priority calls for service. 



Detective Case Management: 

The Detective Case Management System (DCMS) is a state of the art, 
Window-based application designed to give complete case tracking and 
management capabilities to detectives in each District. The DCMS 
includes several features which assist Detectives in their follow-up 
investigations; it records pertinent facts of each case, facts such as 
persons involved, crime patterns, MO facts, and follow-up measures 
taken. 

ID Imaging and Booking System: 

The ID hnaging and Booking system is a state-of-the-art system that 
will maintain arrest and booking data, digital mug shots, and 
fingerprints for all arrestees. Not only does this system significantly 
improve the operations of the ID Unit, it is an excellent investigative tool 
and a core provider of data for a case management application. 

With the ID Imagining System, mug shots are available immediately 
to Investigative and Patrol forces. The system supports multiple satellite 
booking sites, eliminating the time consuming and costly transportation 
of prisoners to a centralized ID facility. 

Achievements as related to Neighboriiood Policing 
for 1995: 

The resectoring of police districts to better enhance sector integrity; 
Call Stacking enhancement to the CAD system, and Remote Booking of 
arrestees. 

Benefits of having a designated beat officer patrol 
the same neighborhood: 

Through the call holding ( or call stacking) feature on the CAD 
system, patrol officers are permitted to stay in the neighborhood where 
they can become more familiar with the type of problems impacting the 
community. 

Accomplishments of individual police officers: 

Police Officer Joseph Dahlbeck, Jeffi-y Walcott and Michael 
Woodson are responsible for training the Department's personnel on 
the various computer systems implemented by the Information System 
Group. This is a colossal project. The need for training raises its head 
each time a new computer system is installed. These three officers have 
consistently met the challenge to provide top of the line training for the 
men and women of the Boston Police Department. 

Accomplishment of a civilian employee: 

Mr. James Fitzpatrick of the Information System Groups effecting 
maintains a very complex Wide Area Network (Wan) which is essential to 
the integration of the various systems installed in the Boston Police 
Department.

A-1 comprises the entire story of Boston within its boundaries, from 
the city's oldest settlements to its newest office towers, from its 
descendants of the Puritans of 1630 to the newest immigrants in the 
mid-1990's. It is a story of diverse neighborhoods with common goals. 

In 1995, the district's commitment to Neighborhood Policing saw the 
same officers working the same neighborhoods 60 percent of the time; 
over 900 drug arrests by the District A-1 Drug Unit; and a Strategic 
Planning Team that has provided a public safety plan that addresses the 
needs of the diverse communities represented on this committee. 

A-1 is home to 31,000 residents, and the weekday population swells 
to many times that number, as commuters come to work at the banks, 
other financial institutions and other major employers downtown. This 
adds another dimension to the diverse demands of downtown Boston 
and its adjacent neighborhoods.

Operation Squeeze is an anti- 
prostitution program first implemented 
in A-1 , and lias since been adopted city- 
wide. Thefocus is predominately 
geared towards the demand side. It 
involves female officers who act in the 

role of a prostitute. There are also 
officers who are in place for sun/eillance 
of the operation. Once the officers are 
solicited, the men are arrested. To serve 

as a deterrent for fijture activity the 

names of the offenders are made public 

via local newspapers 



GOALS FOR 1996 

• To promote morale for District One personnel and the community. 

• Influence increased resource allocation to Area A-1. 

• Improve line of communication internally and externally 

• Increase strategies relative to education and enforcement of sub 
stance abuse 

• Reduce adverse impact of Big Dig - Central Artery / 3rd Harbor 
Tunnel. 

Officers Mlaking a Difference 

Richard Estrella, Steve Green and Tom Hennessey are A-1 police 
officers who work in Charlestown. Day in and day out they work with 
the residents in the neighborhood to help solve public safety problems. 
No problem is too large and none is too small. They represented the 
valor of all the officers of A-1 when they rushed to the scene of a triple 
homicide in a local restaurant on November. 1995, running into the 
path of armed felons, making one on-scene arrest along with officers 
from the Everett Police Department. 



Community In Action 

Dick Adams, a leader of the Beacon Hill Civic Association, reached 
out to the community and police, opening lines of communication as 
well as developing a new found respect for one another. He has led by 
example, as a neighborhood leader who embraces the diversity of the 
district. 

Civilian Partner 

Irene Galvin was responsible for keeping the A-1 Strategic 
Planning Team, the A-1 Neighborhood Advisory Committee and the 
Homeless Committee viable and up to date. Her ability to keep diverse 
groups together is remarkable. She has been able to individualize the 
process by communicating with all neighborhood groups; Charlestown, 
North End, Downtown North, Downtown Crossing, Beacon Hill, 
Chinatown, and Bay Village. Her work is reflected in A- Is strategic goals 
for 1996.

continued a four-year trend in declining serious crime, with a 1995 total 
of 7,805 that was over 10 percent below the five-year average for the 
district. It was 22 percent below 1990's single-year high in that period. 

ACHIEVEIMENTS IN 1995: 

Deputy Superintendent Bobbie Johnson, commander of Area B, 
attributed the progress to "hard-working officers and determined citizen- 
partners." Leading examples of this commitment in 1995 were 
innovative policing initiatives in the Uphams Corner and Academy 
Homes sections of the district. 

The Academy Homes and Uphams Corner efforts are part of a larger 
district project, dubbed "One Step Closer." Also under the banner of 
One Step Closer, a number of police-sponsored activities have brought 
cops and at-risk kids closer together. Examples are: 

• Halloween Party and the Spring Dance for Academy Homes youth. 

• The summer Harbor Cruise Program. 

• The donation of equipment to the Youth Center in the Whittier 
Street Public Housing Development.

partners." Leading examples of this commitment in 1995 were 
innovative policing initiatives in the Uphams Corner and Academy 
Homes sections of the district. 

Officers Making A Difference 

At Academy Homes, Sergeant Mark Handrahan and Officer Jack 

Fee have worked closely with the tenants task force and the complex's 
200 families to address problems with disorder, that historically 
contributed to much victimization and crime. Out of the commitment to 
finding more effective strategies. Sergeant Handrahan uncovered a little- 
used state law that authorizes the housing court to enjoin individuals 
from entering the property of subsidized housing, if they have been 
demonstrated to have committed crimes there. The initiative has 
contributed to significant reductions in calls for service in the area. 

In Uphams Corner, Officers Tom Griffiths and James Coyne have 
successfully combined strong traditional police work with their ability to 
interact and communicate with the residential and business 



communities. They, too, get an edge from being innovative, constantly 
shifting tactics from walking to mobile, from plain clothes to uniforms, 
in order to increase their effectiveness. The merchants in this busy 
commercial district are grateful for Coyne and Griffiths, and credit their 
efforts for making Uphams Corner a much safer place than it was a year 
ago. 

On the enforcement side, B-2's decentralized drug control has 
delivered exemplary service, under the command of Sergeant-Detective 
Jeffery Chancy In Sgt.-Det. Chaney's first four weeks on the job in 
October and November, the squad executed five search warrants on 
ditig-dealing premises. 

The commitment of these officers to improving the quality of life 
across Roxbury was manifest in the work of B-2's Strategic Planning 
team. Highlights among the goals set are: 

• To make drug culture less attractive via positive community values. 

• To create and institute a community-wide standard of public order. 

• To recognize and promote credible leadership in the community. 

Civilian Partner 

Finally, the spirit of B-2 in 1995 is exemplified by Annie Wilcox, the 
tireless "right arm" in Deputy Johnson's office. During the Spring of 
1995, she spent many off duty 
hours at the district digging up 
the outside area and planting 
flowers in an effort to beautify 
the station. As a result of her 
efforts, other inside personnel 
and local youths became 
interested and together they 
created one of the better 
looking flower gardens in this 
area. As a spin-off to their 
effort the entire plaza of the 
police station, library and the 
court house became a 
beautification project and 
received raves from the 
community. Not surprisingly, 
Annie's is usually the first 
name mentioned when 
community residents articulate 
the good deeds of a District 
staff member.

From the city line with Milton, up to the Frederick Law Olmstead- 
designed Franklin Park, District B-3 comprises Mattapan and Dorchester 
neighborhoods rich with diversity. Officers and citizens worked together 
in 1995 to craft a new strategic plan that emphasizes the concerns of 
young people. They seek to help youngsters become productive 
members of the community while also reducing crime and victimaztion.

GOALS FOR 1996: 

• To improve the quality of life and reduce youth related crime 

• To create new and enhance existing community partnerships. 

• To ensure acceptance of the strategic plan by police personnel and 
the larger community. 

• To reduce crime and fear of crime and create a safer environment 
for B-3. 

ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1995 

In 1995, the B-3 community and police made great strides in 
creating a Neighborhood Policing approach to solving local problems. 
Among our accomplishments during the year were: 

• The hiring of a civilian conununity organizer, JuUa Evans. 

District B-3 hired Ms. Evans to reach out and build partnerships with the 
Mattapan community. Ms. Evans also coordinates local press coverage 
of the B-3 activities and accomplishments and provides opportunities to 
highlight effective community efforts at crime prevention and 
intervention. 

• The establishment of the Auto Repair Shop Investigator. In 

response to a growing number of complaints from B-3 residents, the 
District has established a new resource to deal with problems such as 
abandoned cars, street side repairs with oil leaks, tire dumping and 
engine part debris, double and triple parking, and other nuisances 
related to auto repair shops. Unlawful activities being targeted through 
this new program include; unlicensed repair shops, hazardous waste 
violations, fire code violations, tax code violations, labor laws, and chop- 
shop operations. These are serious problems and the District has

and playground are restored as viable 

areas of enjoyment. 



enlisted Officer Bobby Connors to address them in partnership with the 
business and residential community of B-3. 

Officer Connors is establishing an interagency strike team to deal with 
these violations, nuisances and hazards. The team will include; the Fire 
Dept., the US Dept. of Labor, the City of Boston Inspectional Services 
Dept., the Boston Water and Sewer Commission, the Mass. Internal 
Revenue Service, and the Mass. Environmental Protection Agency. 

• Business District Walking Beats; In every business district, there 
are repeated requests for walking officers to work with shopkeepers to 
prevent and solve crime problems such as loitering, robbery, 
panhandling, shoplifting and other threats specific to the business 
communities. In 1995, the District added six new walking beats to cover 
three primary business areas. New partnerships are already being 
formed and the teams have made a positive impact on the business 
development in Mattapan. 

Officers Making A Difference 

Sgt. Tony Fonseca has been a Community Service Supervisor since 
1993, and during the course of his work at B-3 he has focused the 
resources of his staff and his office on meeting the special needs of 
Mattapan youth. Sgt. Fonseca handles regular CSO duties and he also 
volunteers countless hours and energy to the cause of improving the 
quality of life for local children. Some of the programs he that he runs 
on a volunteer basis include; Junior Achievement for elementary school 
kids, a Story Hour for elementary school children, mentoring programs, 
and aid to the deaf community. Sgt. Fonseca was recently honored at 
the 21st Annual Action for Boston Community Development Dinner for 
community service above and beyond the call of duty. 

Police Officers Bobby Duggan and David Johnson are 

commended this year for their courageous actions in apprehending an 
armed felon following the 1995 Caribbean Festival. Their quick and 
immediate response along with that of B-2 Officer Reid allowed them to 
apprehend the armed and dangerous perpetrator of a vicious violent 
crime and effect the removal of two firearms from the streets. 

A Comforting Presence 

Elaine SatcheU makes the B-3 community a family and sets a tone 
of warmth and human kindness in the face of relentless pressure and 
constant challenges. As a front desk clerk, she faces a constant flow of 
walk-in traffic for police business but somehow she manages to always 
keep a kind word and a smile handy, and she finds time to do all of the 
things needed to keep that family environment; including organizing 
special events, parties, and all of the attendant duties. 

An Outstanding Community Partner 

Ed O'Brien is a dedicated and active member of the B-3 community. 
He has been an invaluable panner in public safety through his work on 
the Applegrove Neighborhood Assocation and the B-3 Neighborhood 
Council, among many other community groups and affiliations. He was 
also a key member of the B-3 Strategic Planning team, and continues to 
always be there when we need him. We commend him for his dedication 
to making B-3 a better place in which to live, for all of us. 





7 Warren Avenue • Boston, Massachusetts 02128 • (617) 343-4270 

South End, Back Bay, Fenway 

D-4 is one of the most diverse police districts in the city, ranging from 
the shops of Newbury Street to the lively streets of the South End. People 
from every background come together around common concerns about 
public safety, through the leadership of Commander Charles Cellucci. 
The district's strategic goals reflect the commitment to working in 
partnership to eliminate disorder and crime and improve the quality of 
life for all. 

GOALS FOR 1996 

• Create safer, more livable neighborhoods and improve the quality 
of life by reducing fear and crime. 

• Create a comprehensive plan to provide positive alternatives to 
drugs and violence for the youth in our neighborhoods. 

• Deliver more efficient and effective police services to the citizens of 
D-4 with an emphasis on quality of life issues. 

ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1995 

District D-4 personnel were already delivering on their promises in 
1995. They expanded the number of regular beats and have had beat 
officers involved in community meetings in the neighborhoods they 
patrol. They achieved double-digit increases in the number of non- 
emergency reports taken over the telephone, helping to keep the same 
officers working the same neighborhoods. 

Captain Cellucci said, "As police officers, we get called in when 
things are at their worst. In the past, we were asked too many times to 
come in as strangers and settle community conflicts. Having the same 
officer dealing with the same neighborhood on a daily basis will help 
build trust, confidence and familiarity among the police department and 
the neighborhood. Officers will get to know the citizens of the 
neighborhood, thus helping them recognize strange faces and the hot 
spot areas for crime." 

Officers Making A Difference 

One officer who has come to the defense of the neighborhood's most 
crime-impacted sections is William Reynolds, a 10-year veteran, who has 
served for the past seven years in the Anti-Crime Unit at D-4. The 300 
arrests per year that Officer Reynolds has made have been high-quality, 
apprehending offenders responsible for the problems prioritized by the 
community. He logs even more community meetings than arrests. He 
symbolizes the districts commitment and that of the Department to work 
in problem-solving pannerships with community stakeholders.

District 4 has formed 

partnerships with housing 

developments within the 

district, as well as the MA 

Housing Authority (MFHA), 

and the Housing and Urban 

Development Office (HUD). 

This partnership has 

decreased the level of crime 

occuring in the housing 

developments targeted. 



The mission of prevention and deterrence permeates all the work in 
the district, but in no place more than the area of youth services. Youth 
Service Officer John Ridge, a highly-commended anti-crime officer, is 
one of the YSO's making a difference with youngsters in the South End. 
Officer Ridge has developed many new partnership programs, including 
the summer and winter basketball leagues and the flag football league 
at Ramsey Park. These programs are made up of youth throughout D-4 
and include members of each of the five housing developments that are 
located in D-4. Officer Ridge has also set up strong pannerships with the 
YMCA, Cooper Community Center, and the Salvation Army. 

Civilian Partner 

The work of all the officers in the district is supponed by dedicated 
civilian staff like David Isberg, who, under the federal Comprehensive 
Communities Program helps implement the Neighborhood Policing 
Program in the City of Boston. Mr. Isberg has worked very closely with 
the Strategic Planning Team, in helping devise a plan that best suits the 
needs of the District 4 community. 

The Community in Action 

The Ringgold Park Crime Watch, exemplifies the kind of 
community involvement that suppons Neighborhood Policing. The 
Crime Watch came together in August 1994 in response to a gang-related 
shooting of a 15-year-old in the small playground between Hanson and 
Waltham streets in the Eight Streets Neighborhood Association. The 
volunteers worked with police and cit)' officials to clean up the park and 
clear it of drug dealers. The city removed graffiti and trimmed trees for 
better visibility; a police cruiser stood watch at least once a night. The city 
closed the park at 10 p.m., 90 minutes earlier than other parks and 
allowed the crime watch to lock its gates. "It's become part of the 
neighborhood again," says Mark Hohhouse, Eight Streets president. 
"People came together over the issue."

In an effort to reduce vehicle 
break-ins in the area, the Car 

Safe Vehicle Warning Program 
was developed. If an officer 
sees that a resident has left 

valuable property in his or her 

car, has left the vehicle 

unlocked and unattended a 

"ticket" is left on the windshield 

indicating to the citizen that he 
or she is inviting a thief to break 
into the vehicle. The ticket 
contains the number for the 
District's Community Service 
Office for further information 
regarding personal security. 



The officers of H-5 protect the public safety in the neighborhoods of 
Jamaica Plain, Roslindale and West Roxbury. They did a great job of it in 
199S, in partnership with the community, and they have ambitious plans 
to do even more in 1996. 

GOALS FOR 1996 

• hiiprove the overall quality of life in the community, reduce fear of 
crime, and have citizens play a pro-active role. 

• Enhance understanding and communication among area residents, 
the courts, and the police. 

• Increase public safety and reduce crime through community 
awareness. 

ACHIEVEMENTS OF 1995 

• Increasing the network of crime watches by encouraging 
community residents to form neighborhood crime watch programs and 
assisting in their organization. 

• Implemented a program encouraging people to register their 
bicycles with the police department in an attempt to decrease theft. 

• The Car Safe Vehicle Warning Program. The program was 
developed in an attempt to reduce car breaks in the area. If an off^icer 
sees that a resident has left valuable property in his car, a ticket is left on 
the windshield indicating the the potential risk of theft. It is presently 
being implemented city wide. 

• Bike patrol. Two Police Officers have been assigned bicycles to 
patrol the Jamaica Plain business area with the goal of reducing crime in 
the area. 

• Home Survey program. The survey analyzes and suggests what a 
home owner can do to reduce the chances of being victimized in a 
breaking and entering. 

• Robberies in Area E-5 have been reduced by identifying the affected 
areas and increasing police presence in these areas through foot patrols. 
The area drug unit has played a crucial role in these effons by focusing 



on and arresting area drug dealers and buyers. Many weapons have 
been seized by the officers during these arrests and investigations. 

Officers Making A Differnece 

Officer Mike O'Connor was the first officer to volunteer for Area 
E's bicycle patrol. Over the last year he has developed a devoted 
following who attribute the reduction of robberies in the Jamaica Plain 
Center area to his presence. The car safe program, developed by 
Lieutenant Detective Lydstone and Officer Richard Laham, was 
implemented by Officer O'Connor with rave reviews from the 
community. 

Officer Richard Laham has been certified by the Criminal Justice 
Training Counsel as a Crime Prevention Officer and uses repeat call 
analysis to identify and resolve many problems proactively. He has 
developed a very successful program that conducts home and business 
surveys for area residents, in an attempt to reduce housebreaks in the 
area. Officer Laham attends meetings with area businessmen, speaks at 
local interest groups, and teaches child safety. 

A Civilian Partner 

Marguerite Cullen has met with area leaders and residents over the 
last several years and has developed an extensive working knowledge of 
problems that are of most concern to the citizens. Mrs. Cullen 
coordinates community meetings with the various organizations in West 
Roxbury, Roslindale, and Jamaica Plain and sets up meetings that are 
attended by the CSO officers during the week. She also has attended 
community meetings and promotes the proactive community policing 
philosophy. Mrs. Cullen is well respected by community leaders. She 
recently received acknowledgment from the residents of Jamaica Plain, 
Commissioner Paul Evans, Representative John McDonough and Mayor 
Thomas Menino for her service over the last year to the community. Mrs. 
Cullen has been the only civilian so honored with this award. 

Community In Action 

Area residents from the South Street Jamaica Plain community, 
lead by Barbara Gibson, have taken a pro-active approach in dealing 
with illegal drugs and graffiti issues in their community. They formed 
The South Street Survivors to give area girls an opportunity to better 
themselves. With the assistance of representatives from city hall, the 
community group removed graffiti on several different occasions to 
develop a graffiti free zone. When graffiti was put back, they removed it 
again. Working closely with Sergeant James Lynch, residents successfully 
helped to arrest and convict several area youths for defacing properties 
in the community with graffiti. 




101 West Broadway • South Boston, Massachusetts 02128 • (6l7) 343-4730 

In 1776 the British were driven from Boston by cannon atop 
Dorchester Heights in what is now South Boston, and 219 years later the 
officers and citizens of "Southie" work with the same zeal to improve the 
quality of life in the neighborhood, hi 1996 they have set out a visionary 
agenda of partnerships and improvements in the quality of life. 

GOALS FOR 1996 

• To partner with the business community to restore and revitalize 
the central business district and increase the perception of public 
safety. To coordinateprograms, a District C-6 officer was selected 
to serve on the "Main Streets" revitalization program. 

• To reduce accidents and injuries to people through an Accident 
Reduction Program that involves increased enforcement, 

• To reach out to seniors through a new Senior Citizen Outreach 
Program. Senior citizen liaison officers are assigned to all tours, to 
work with the district's Senior Response Officer. A new level of 
coordination includes the establishment of a new Senior Council. 

The new goals for 1996 build on the district's commitment to 
partnership, with a special focus on children. 

ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1995 

With school staff. Officer Neva Coakley has initiated a specialized 
program for troubled children at the Perkins Elementary School, the 
Gavin Middle School and at South Boston High School. Officers counsel 
the students and become reliable authority figures in their lives. 

The district's Community Serv ice Office, supervised by Sgt. Kevin 
Rodday along with Officer Joseph Gray, Officer Richard Doherty, 
Officer William Hasson and Civilian Community Officer Dennis 
Flaherty, administers a number of programs with community partners. 
They include: 

Work with the South Boston Little League providing Department 
D.A.R.E. funds to support umpires. Several hundred local youth 
participated in this program. 

A Teen Alternative Program that brings together young people to 
discuss alternatives to drugs and alcohol. The focus of this group is 
problem solving among peers. 

South Boston Summer Collaborative from June - August, 1995.

In order to effectively deal with problems 

related to public underage drinking. 

District 6 along with the assistance of 

vanous community groups and the 

District Court formed the Public Drinking 

Diversion Program. Before the 

development of the program the 

response was to arrest a juvenile for 

public dnnking. The youth would be 

processed through the court system and 

shortly thereafter be back doing the same 

thing. The Diversion program requires 

the youth and parent or guardian to 

attend an alcohol awareness program. 

The program is spread over several 

separate meetings. 



A 



Neighborhood House. Focus on scheduling and 
prioritizing youth activities to keep youth off the 
streets and make South Boston a safer 
Community. 

Captain Crowley is also proud of the work 
his officers have done in addressing one of the 
community's most strongly-expressed priorities: 
youthful public drinking. The district's new 
Public Drinking Diversion Program was a result 
of community input from all phases of the 
Strategic Planning project. The police developed 
the program and met with District Court and 
Probation Department personnel who agreed to 
implement it. 

Of the thirty-six youths who were involved in 
this program in 1995 there were no repeat 
offenders. The neighborhood experienced one 
its quietest summers in several years. 

Officers Making A Difference 

The work of Officer James Happnie, a 27-year veteran, illustrates 
the effectiveness of the principle of "same cop, same neighborhood" that 
the Department is working towards for the total patrol force. Jim has 
been the beat officer in the McCormack (Old Harbor Development) for 
the past several years. His experience, effectiveness, and dedication to 
partnership with the community is shown by the high esteem the 
residents of the Development have for him. Fairness and integrity 
displayed in every day performance makes officer James Happnie a role 
model for all working police officers. 

A Civilian Partner 

Karen M. Egan was appointed as a School Traffic Supervisor from 
November 1987 through November 199-i. On 11-30-94, Karen was 
appointed as a Clerk-Typist at District Six — Primary Assignment at the 
Front Desk. Karen, with a minimum of supervision, has adapted to and 
performs all the duties of this assignment in an extraordinary manner. 
Karen's intelligence and personality shine through in her dealing with 
the public — in often adversarial situations- and has benefited the 
Department and residents of South Boston in immeasurable terms. 

Community in Action 

As trust developed and the residents began providing information to 
the police, police were able to take appropriate action in dealing with a 
large gang that was using the neighborhood for illegal activities. As a 
result of court complaints and monitoring, this gang was broken up and 
left the area. And on September 26, 1995, the McCormack Civic 
Association, in a show of appreciation for the officers of District Six, 
presented a Certificate of Appreciation to the officers of C-6. 





Captain Cuiuiuigbain, 
Commander A-7 



69 Paris Steet • East Boston, Massachusetts 02128 • (6l7) 343-4220 

District A-7 was a leader in 1995 in building partnerships for crime 
prevention. The strategic goals they are now working toward in reflect 
the commitment to partnerships and prevention: 

GOALS FOR 1996 

• To aggressively fight crime to make East Boston safer. 

• To work to strengthen the partnerships between District 7 and the 
stakeholders of East Boston. 

• To improve the quality of life in East Boston. 

ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1995 

The collaboration flows from community pride that is illustrated 
when the people refer to A-7 as the "East Boston Police Department." 
The partnerships already have begun to pay dividends for the district's 
33,000 residents. 

For example, street prostitution was cited by residents as a major 
problem. Over the course of the past year a vigorous collaboration 
among District A-7 officers, local crime watch members and the Suffolk 
County District Attorney resulted in a major reduction in the problem as 
measured by a nearly 50 percent decrease in street-level prostitution in 
the neighborhood. 

The commander. Captain Bob Cunningham, said, "The 'same 
officer, same neighborhood' concept is one of the cornerstones of 
community policing. It exacts a measure of responsibility from both the 
beat officer and the neighborhood residents. The result is a working 
partnership based on mutual respect and trust." 

Officers Making A Difference 

officer Joseph Favale is the walking beat officer assigned to the 
Maverick Square Public Housing Development. Where residents once 
lived and walked in fear, they now take comfort in the fact that Officer 
Favale is in the neighborhood. He has worked with the residents and 
management to improve the quality of life in the development. 

The same values prevail in Orient Heights, where Officer Kevin 
Finn drives the beat. Whether responding to a radio call or helping 
neighbors with a community problem, Kevin is respected as a working 
cop who embraces ownership and accountability.

When Attorney General Janet Reno came to Dorchester in 1994, she 
said, "I don't know of any community in the country that involved so 
many disciplines - hospital workers, police, community activists, social 
semce - as Dorchester." The partners in Boston's most populous 
neighborhood kept up the great work in 1995. They have applied their 
achievements as staging for even more progress in 1996. 

GOALS FOR 1996 

• Create safe, secure, and livable neighborhoods. 

• Continue to police Dorchester with a continued commitment to the 
community. 

• Increase the communication, access, and mutual assistance 
between all groups working for the good of Dorchester 

• Maintain the professionalism, skills and knowledge of the person 
nel assigned to C-11. 

ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1995 

Captain Robert Dunford describes the district's governance 
structure, the Neighborhood Advisory Council, as a board of directors, in 
which he serves as executive director." In this spirit, the district 
measured progress in 1995 by outcomes on the street. They conducted 
a survey that found: 

• A 10 percent increase over 1994 in people reporting that they were 
not afraid to go out at night. 

• Quality of life crime was the major concern of the neighborhood as 
identified by respondents. 

• The Street Violence Reduce Program show a 25% increase 

in arrests over 1994. The arrests translate into a 8.4% decrease in 
violent crime district-wide and an estimated 15% decrease in violent 
crime in the target area. 

Officers Making A Difference 

Dave Holleran is the sector officer for the Savin Hill neighborhood. 
Officer Holleran worked hard in addressing a group dealing drugs and 
harassing people in the Deer St./Melvinside Terrace area. Working with 
the Daniel Marr Boys and Girls Club and other neighbors, and utilizing 
the resources at the district. Officer Halloran was able to identify the 
trouble makers. With a team effort he was able to not only arrest the 



major violators but create an environment where their behavior was not 
tolerated. On December 19th, the Marr Club took ownership of 3, 5, 
and 7 Melvinside Terrace for use by the Club. 

Walter Fahey is the ambassador of good will to the residents of 
C-11, greeting new residents and protection a convent of nuns of Mother 
Theresa's Order. Without fanfare Officer Fahey has organized clothing 
and food drives, aided residents and citizens in need and has done it all 
with compassion, empathy, and good nature. His energy level and 
enthusiasm exceeds even the most enthusiastic despite his 40 years of 
service. 

Civilian Partner 

Civilians are key to C-ll's success. Kay Farrell has worked at C-11 
since 1975. During that time she has been instrumental in organizing 
the administration of the District and Area. The quality of administrative 
and investigative reports submitted by the District is due to her editing 
skills. In particular the documentation and control of 2400 Abuse 
Prevention Orders has been one of her major tasks. 

Community in Action 

The Bentham Road Neighborhood Watch has achieved results 
the same way. They have been the sentries of their neighborhood for the 
past two years and have helped to make a major impact on the quality of 
life in their neighborhood. In addition to the expected activities of a 
neighborhood crime watch they have gone one step funher by adopting 
nearby Ronan Park. The group assists in clean up effons on a voluntary 
basis as the need arises and they also insure that the proper city agencies 
are notified when maintenance is required. This group of citizens is an 
embodiment of what Neighborhood Policing is all about.

In an ongoing effort to remove graffiti, D- 

1 4 officers with assistance from the 

Brighton District Court, and Allston 

Board of Trade have combined efforts to 

create an Anti-Graffiti Program. A reward 

is given for information leading to the 

arrest and conviction of graffiti writers. 

Once the offender is processed, he or 

she is sentenced to 1 00 hours of 
community work. Community Service 
Officers request permission of building 

owners to remove graffiti from their 

buildings. Once permission is given the 

offender begins graffiti removal under the 

supervision of the Boston Police. 



• Educate members of the community as to how the police 
department works in order to promote partnership, reduce fear 
and fight crime. 

• Improve Partnerships and cooperation with other city agencies in 
order to improve Allston-Brightons quality of life. 

• Recognize and encourage creative problem solving by both police 
officers and stakeholders. 

• Improve the partnership between youth and police to fight crime. 

ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1995 

Underage drinking and the disruption it causes is a major concern in 
this district. To this end, the District worked cooperatively with the 
owners of liquor stores and liquor distributors. A grant enabled this 
district to provide undercover police details to seven major liquor stores 
during September and the advertising materials enabled the district to 
creatively and effectively communicate our message that alcohol would 
not be sold to people under the age of 21. Both colleges and liquor 
stores were pleased with the program; one liquor merchant remarked 
that he experienced at least a 300% decrease in minors attempting to 
purchase alcohol. 

In a continuation of this effort to educate residents, particularly 
students, about the underage drinking law. District I4's community 
service office and Boston College and Boston University's community 
relations representatives negotiated with local liquor merchants to 
control delivery of beer kegs in Allston and Brighton. As a result of this 



effort, liquor retailers have agreed not to deliver kegs of beer to 
designated addresses on the District which have been sites for loud and 
disruptive activity by primarily underage drinkers. 

Officers Making A Difference 

Sergeant Detective Kevin Mullen supervises the work of 
detectives assigned to the first half tour of duty and, in this capacity, 
oversees investigations into a wide variety of crimes. Sgt. Mullen does his 
job well, and has displayed both a sensitivity to the concerns of the 
residents of Allston and Brighton, and an ability to coordinate his efforts 
with those of the patrol force. Sgt. Mullen has particularly shown these 
qualities in his response to the problem of B&E's, underage drinking 
and graffiti. 

Sgt. Mullen's efforts are greatly appreciated by a community which 
recently cited " public drunkenness" and "noise" as the second and third 
most common problems in their neighborhoods. 

Officer Albert Terestre. This district used grant funds to provide 
a day time walking officer in the Union Square neighborhood of Allston. 
Officer Terestre volunteered for this assignment and quickly became an 
invaluable asset to the neighborhood. Officer Terestres daily routine 
include visits to the Jackson Mann School and the Jackson Mann 
Community Center, the West End Boys and Girls Club, the Allston 
Nursing Home, and the merchants in the Union Square business area. 

Officers Robert Zingg and Daniel Duff patrol D-14 as a rapid 
response unit on the morning watch tour of duty. Officers Zingg and 
Duff are highly motivated officers with good street instincts whose arrests 
are often the result of motor vehicle stops or street observations. Officers 
Zingg and Duff have recently been commended for their arrest of two 
armed carjacking suspects and their arrest of two men wanted for 
assault by means of a gun. 

Civilian Partner 

Kara England joined District I4"s staff in June as a civilian 
community service officer. Ms. England has accomplished a great deal in 
a very short period of time and has proven a great addition to this district. 

Community in Action 

Paul Berkeley, President of the Allston Civic Association is an 
individual who has gone out of his way to involve himself with both his 
community and his local police district. Paul's work with the A.C.A. puts 
him in a unique position to monitor the pulse of the Allston-Brighton 
community. He stays in close contact with D-14, passing on any 
problems or concerns local residents may have. In the partnership with 
Mr. Berkeley, officers from this district have solved numerous problems 
affecting the quality of life in our area. 




1249 Hyde Park Avenue • Hyde Park, Miissachusetts 02128 • (617) 343-5600 

In District 18's Hyde Park and Readville neighborhoods, 
Neighborhood PoUcing is practiced on a retail basis, with much one-to- 
one contact between police commanders and officers and citizens, hi 
1995 this yielded continuing decreases in crime and a new plan for 
1996. 

GOALS FOR 1996 

• Reduce crime and fear of crime. 

• Expect Respectful behavior in youth. 

• Decrease fear around racial differences: Promote stability. 

• Improve appearance and vitality of E-18 business district. 
ACHIEVMENTS IN 1995: 

During the summer months of 1995 the Youth Service Officer at 
District E-18 began a baseball league for local youth ages 5-7. The 
program, Hyde Park Rookie Ball was supported by the Boston Red Sox. 
At the league's kick off event the Boston Red Sox arrived with hats, team 
shirts, bats, balls, gloves, helmets, and catchers equipment. All 144 
players, their coaches and families were treated to a cook-out supplied 
by the Boston Police Athletic League. 

As a result of the Strategic Planning Initiative, E-18 will establish a 
Neighborhood Enhancement Council, which will be comprised of 
representatives from each Crime Watch group in the District. With the 
encouragement of the E-18 Community Service Office, seven new 
Neighborhood Watch Groups have been formed during 1995. Crime 
Watch Groups are also being planned for businesses areas. The Council 
will meet on a bi-monthly basis with officers from District E-18 to discuss 
District wide concerns, exchange information, and formulate solutions 
to problems. Ideally, this Council will function in a manner similar to 
the Strategic Planning Council. 

In response to the serious concerns of the residents and business 
people relative to graffiti, the District E-18 Community Service Office 
acquired three graffiti removal machines. On November 17, 1995, 
Community Service Officer Coreen Thomas partnered with the Main 
Streets program and organized a clean-up day, targeting graffiti. Civilian

The Office of the Police (Commissioner (OPC) consists of 
officers and civilian personnel who have responsibility for 
providing support to the Police Commissioner in strategic, legal, 
policy, resource development, media, and research issues. 

During 1995, the OPC managed a series of initiatives to 
support the goals of Neighborhood Policing across the City. 
Strategic planning and resource development strategies were 
employed to achieve the goals of increased partnership, problem- 
solving and prevention throughout all areas of the Department's 
work. Some important accomplishments included: 

Tlie Strategic Planning and Community Mobilization Project 
was conducted. This process involved bringing over 400 internal 
and external stakeholders together to chart the future of 
Neighborhood Policing in each of the City's police districts, and 
within the Department in five functional areas. The project lasted 
eight months, and resulted in a sixteen volume Strategic Plan for 
Neighborhood Policing, written by a broad mix of residents, police 
officers, business leaders, religious and civic leaders and 
community service organations. 

Over $10 million in grant funds were acquired to support the 
implementation of the goals in the Strategic Plan for 
Neighborhood Policing. These funds enabled each District to take 
on new challenges such as the Safe Neighborhood Initiatives, and 
the Comprehensive Communities Program, as well as new anti- 
violence and illegal firearms tracking programs. These resources 
were also used to support "same cop, same neighborhood," 
strategies for keeping beat officers in the same areas a minimum 
of 60% of the time. 

In 1995, the OPC's Office of Research and Analysis completed 
the 1995 Public Safety Survey, a comprehensive approach to 
gathering data on city residents' perception and fear of crime, and 
to engage their direct participation in guiding Department 
initiatives. The survey assessed the levels of public support for 
various Neighborhood Policing initiatives as well as residents 
perceptions of police and crime in their Districts. 



Joseph C. Carter 
Superintendent 



Development of new public private partnerships for youth 
violence prevention was a key priority in 1995. Through the 
generous support of the YMCA of Greater Boston, the BPD offered 
over 400 at-risk youth the opportunity to participate in productive 
summer programming. The John Hancock Corporation 
continued to support youth through the Summer of Opportunity 
employment training program for urban teens. These programs, 
among others, continue to make Boston safer and provide 
positive opportunities for all youth. 

The OPC's Office of Informational Services works closely with 
the media to ensure that the public gets clear updates on new 
initiatives and important public safety issues. Through televised 
programming, such as Call the Cops, the residents of the city can 
interact directly with officers on a weekly basis. 

Each of these initiatives represents a comprehensive 
commitment to Neighborhood Policing. In 1996, The OPC will 
continue to seek the participation of all internal and external 
partners in sustaining and strengthening Neighborhood Policing. 

In 1995, the City hired 168 new police officers Neighborhood 
Policing. Promotions were also made, with four to Lieutentant 
and ten to Sergeant Detective.

OPERATIONS DIVISION 

GOALS FOR 1996: 

• To implement alternative ways to respond to 9-1-1 calls for service 
besides sending a police car; 

• To utilize the CAD's "triage capability" to instruct the 9-1-1 Call 
Taker to ask IF and OR questions that help to determine the 
appropriate response to the call; 

• To improve feed back to the citizen requesting service and to the 
Officer responding to the call concerning information on context, 
response time or status of the call; 

• To use Operations personnel to survey caller satisfaction with the 
police response to 9-1-1 calls; 

• To identify the source of turnover of 9-1-1 personnel and to devise a 
plan to remedy the problem; 

• To train Operations Division personnel and implement "call 
stacking" to enhance Neighborhood Policing by maintaining sector 
integrity; 

• To create the position of CSO (Community Service Officer) in the 
Operations Division to establish and maintain a partnership with 
Community Organizations for the purpose of improving caller 
satisfaction. 

ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1995: 

• During 1995, the Operations Division increased its ability to take 
phone reports through the Neighborhood Interaction Unit (NIU), freeing 
up hundreds of officer hours per week in support of the Neighborhood 
Policing initiative. Additionally, the Operations Division trained and 
certified all 9-1-1 Call Takers in APCO (Association of Public-Safety 
Communications Officers) resulting in a higher quality of service to the 
community. 

• Over the course of 1995, the Operations Divisions Training 
Coordinator has responded to several District stations to provide 
additional CAD training to district personnel who requested it. Also, 
Operations continues to act as a resource for other units who frequently 
call the Division to ask questions about CAD (Computer Aided 
Dispatch), MDT (Mobile Data Terminals), LEAPS (Law Enforcement 
Agencies Processing System) or NCIC (National Crime Information 
Center). 

• A questionnaire designed to identify the source of turnover of 9-1-1 
personnel has been distributed to all Operations Division personnel 
and the results were tabulated by the Office of Research and Analysis. 

• A questionnaire designed to survey caller satisfaction with police 
response to 9-1-1 calls has been designed and will be distributed to 
callers in 1996. 



Officers Making A Difference 

officer Joseph Brady, the Area A dispatcher, sent a service unit to 
East Boston, to assist an ambulance relative to a man (later identified as 
Lieutenant Jose A. Garcia, assigned to District 7) having a heart attack. 
Officer Brady learned that the victim required immediate transport to the 
hospital through the Sumner Tunnel during morning rush hour traffic. 
Officer Brady quickly coordinated all police response units on Area A, 
strategically assigning them to traffic posts on both sides of the tunnel. 
The dispatcher's efforts helped ease the ambulance through the heavy 
traffic to the Massachusetts General Hospital in a matter of minutes. 

Because of Officer Brady's calm professionalism in the presence of 
crisis along with his quick thinking and demonstrable knowledge, 
Lieutenant Garcia recovered. 

Officer Richard Ingersoll, the Area D dispatcher, sent units to an 
explosion and fire in the transformer room of the Copley Place Mall. 
Officer Ingersoll strategically assigned police units to traffic posts 
around the area while coordinating the arrival of the Boston Fire 
Department, the Hazardous Materials Officer and the Boston Gas 
Company. When the Boston Fire Department lost its radio 
communications, Officer Ingersoll handled their radio messages until 
the BFD Mobile Communications Unit arrived, arranging for the 
evacuation of approximately two thousand people. 

Officer Curtis Carroll, as the Area C dispatcher, sent units to 
Dorchester relative to a domestic disturbance. During the incident, the 
husband armed himself with a high powered rifle and threatened his 
family. When the first units from District 1 1 arrived on scene, the 
suspect fired a round in their direction through the living room window. 
When additional units arrived. Officer Carroll, who was instrumental in 
coordinating the entire effort, assigned them to secure a perimeter, 
blocking off adjacent streets and reinforcing the units already on scene. 
The incident concluded without injury and with the arrest of the suspect. 

A Civilian Partner 

Communications Equipment Operator Roberta Goodman, 

assigned to the Operations Division as a 9-1-1 Call Taker, received a call 
from a woman who stated that she had just been attacked and almost 
raped by a male suspect. After obtaining a detailed description of the 
suspect, CEO Goodman quickly entered two calls into the CAD system: 
one for an Assault and Battery report at the victim's home address and 
one for Investigate Person giving a detailed description of the suspect. 
Within minutes, an Officer on foot patrol in the area observed a possible 
suspect. The victim was transported to the scene where she made a 
positive identification. The suspect was arrested.

Accomplishments of Individual police officers: 

Police Officer Catherine Doherty (Ikillistics Unit) — HO. Doherty 
works Willi our Intcgralctl Ballistics kic'iitification System, and has made 
our system a model for the rest ot the nation. She has designed 
protocols which have been adopted for national replication by the 
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF). 

Lt. Detective Steve Murphy and Lt. Detective Tun Murray 

(Cold Case Squad) These two Lt. Detectives have worked on some of the 
toughest cases in Boston, with continuing success. Though they've also 
solved "real time" homicides, their work on the (.old Cases is exemplary 
and they are recognized both by victims' families and police for their hard 
work in 1995. 

Accomplishments of a civilian employee: 

Marie Sconsoni : Marie works in Field Reports, and took 1995 as an 
opportunity to train District personnel in the protocols for gathering and 
using crime data on a national level, through the Uniform Crime 
Reporting system (UCR). Ms. Sconsoni developed a course for District 
personnel and brought it to each police District over the past year, 
helping the whole depanment to enhance our data collection and 
management for Neighborhood Policing. 

CRIME STOPPERS 

GOALS FOR 1996 

• Make the community more aware of the resource our anonymous 
crime tipline offers; 

• Assist in solving more violent crimes than in 1995; and 

Achievements as related to Neighborhood Policing 
for 1995: 

• Crime Stoppers helped to solve over 25 cases of violent crime that 
had been unsolved; 

• Crime Stoppers formed positive partnerships with members of 
Boston's major media; 

• Crime Stoppers engaged the citizens to assist in the effort to make 
their neighborhoods safer, in a safe manner. 

Benefits of having a designated beat officer patrol 
the same neighborhood: 

That officer can gain a special awareness of the needs of the 
neighborhood if he/she is there regularly. 

Accomplishments of individual police officers: 

Officer Bernard Graves is a hard-working, dedicated and 
enthusiastic addition to Crime Stoppers, which certainly could not 
ftmction without his devotion and energetic support. 



Detectives Paul Martin of Area B, John Martel of Homicide, and 

Danny Keeler of Homicide have utilized Crime Stoppers to halt violent 
crimes. 

Det. William HUl of D4 has, in his spare time created a computer 
data base for Crime Stoppers that has significantly increased the office's 
efficiency and accuracy of record keeping. 

Accomplishment of a civilian employee: 

The late Paul Greene has helped significantly with creating a radio 
format for Crime Stoppers, as well as devoting time and effort to the 
video unit portion of "Call the Cops" and the depanment in general. He 
uses his professional training as an actor/announcer to enhance many 
of the Crime Stoppers and video unit productions. 

George Keenan of ISG has been a tremendous help getting the unit 
computerized. 

Accomplishments of a citizen or citizen's group in 
partnership with district: 

The Louis D. Brown Peace Curriculum, organized by the parents 
of murder victim Louis Brown, Joseph and Clementina Chery, have been 
instrumental in supporting the efforts of Crime Stoppers not only to 
solve the homicide of their son, but to engage the community to utilize 
Crime Stoppers to make Boston safer. 

COLD CASE SQUAD 

GOALS FOR 1996 

The major goal for the Cold Case Squad is to solve previously 
unsolved murder cases. The spirit and tenacity of purpose exliibited by 
the members of the Squad is probably best reflected in their team motto 
"Justice will Prevail." 

ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1995 

In approximately four years, the two member "Cold Case 
Squad" has cracked a total of 44 murder cases, including four 
cases from the 1960s. These 44 cases have remained opened 
or unsolved for more than a total of 400 years all together. 

One question that usually arises in relation to the arrests made 
in these "Cold Cases" is: "How viable are these cases in court 
after so many years ? The "Cold Case Squad" has a conviction in each 
case that has gone to trial. 

In addition, in 1994, Superintendent John Boyle, the Chief of 
the Bureau of Investigative Services, instructed the "Cold Case 
Squad" to concentrate their efforts on 27 long-term "Wanted" Rape 
Fugitives. These were individuals for whom an Indictment Warrant, 
charging them with the crime of Rape, was issued years ago but 
the Defendant jumped bail and fled. After an 100 day Operation, 
Superintendent Boyle announced to the public at a press 



confeivncv that (he 'Cold Case Squad" had tracked down all 11 
long iciiii 'Wanictl" Rape i'ugitives. These fugitives, which 
accounted for more than 20% of all the Rape Warrants on 
file at the Warrant Unit, had been wanted and "on the run" 
for a combined total of more than 300 years. 

Accomplishments off individual police offficers: 

Lt. Det. Stephen Murphy is the senior most Lieutenant 
Detective in the Boston Police Department. He is a graduate of 
Northeastern University and has handled well in excess of a 100
