GUN10-22-18a.jpg

ONE LESS GUN: At about 7:40pm, on Saturday, October 20, 2018, officers from District A-7 (East Boston) were on patrol in the area of Maverick Landing due to numerous complaints from community members relative to loud activity, trespassing and public drinking in the area. While patrolling the area, officers observed a motor vehicle to be parked on property with posted signs clearly stating: Parking for Residents Only. While approaching the car, officers observed two occupants engaged in an activity consistent with the usage of illegal narcotics. While speaking to the occupants, officers immediately recognized the individual sitting in the passenger seat as a person they had encountered several times before. Specifically, the individual was known to carry weapons and had previously faced charges relating to the unlawful possession of firearms. While speaking to the suspect, officers noted that he appeared to be nervous as the pace of his breathing quickened and body language stiffened. In light of the aforementioned, the suspect was asked to exit the vehicle. However, instead of complying, the suspect became belligerent and bad-tempered. After repeated requests to exit the car, the suspect ultimately complied. With the suspect now outside the vehicle, officers detected a hard object while conducting a pat frisk of the suspect for weapons. A further search enabled officers to locate and confiscate a firearm (see photo) described as a Taurus Millennium G2 9MM Semi-Automatic Pistol with 8 rounds of live ammunition housed inside a 12 round magazine.

Officers arrested the suspect, an 18-year-old male from Boston, and charged him with the Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Carrying a Loaded Firearm on a Public Way, Possession of a High Capacity Feeding Device and Trespassing.

Thank You for Thanking Us: Captain McCormick and District A-7 Officers Receive Thank You Letter from East Boston Central Catholic School

THANK YOU: The Boston Police Department received a letter of gratitude and appreciation from the East Boston Central Catholic School and the Chavarria Family. On Tuesday, October 2, 2018, officers assigned to District A-7 (East Boston), MBTA, State Police, Revere Police, MDC, Massport, and EMS, provided an escort to a student battling Leukemia. To Principal Casaletto, the Chavarria Family and the East Boston Central Catholic School community, we at the BPD say: “Thank you for thanking us!”

Boston Police Department

East Boston, MA 02128 

Dear Captain Kelley McCormick.  

Words cannot express the gratitude and appreciation I have for the love and support you and your officers provided to East Boston Central Catholic School in support of our Cristopher’s Angels walk. 

Cristopher was diagnosed with Leukemia back in June and his doctors are optimistic that he will be okay, but he will be faced with three years of treatments. Right now, Cristopher is strong and able to attend school, but we don’t know for how long. We, as a school community, wanted to do something for Cristopher and his family.  

We decided to walk from our school to his house in Revere. At first that seemed like a nice idea, but not really something we could pull off without help. I reached out to Officers Derek Russo and Gary Marino who immediately jumped on board and brought me directly to you. To me, I felt like my requests were a little too much, but you went above and beyond what I could have possibly imagined.  

If your efforts to coordinate support from the MBTA, State Police, Revere Police, MDC, Massport, EMS, and the number of Boston officers on bikes and in vehicle were not enough, you also took the time out of your very busy schedule to walk the entire way with us. The escort back to school for Cristopher and his family is something that they will never forget! 

Today is the Feast of the Guardian Angels and you and your officers were truly our Guardian Angels. East Boston is lucky to have a Captain like you at the helm.  

On behalf of the Chavarria family and the entire EBCCS family, THANK YOU! 

Sincerely,

Robert Casaletto

Principal

BPD Officers Honored and Humbled to Provide Police Escort to Little Boy Battling Leukemia in East Boston

KELLEY.jpg

BPD in the Community: BPD Officers Honored and Humbled to Provide Police Escort to Little Boy Battling Leukemia in East Boston: Every now and again, the men and women of the Boston Police Department are asked to participate in a truly special, humbling and heartfelt event that allows them to be a part of something bigger than themselves while connecting with and caring for a community member most assuredly in need of some support, comfort and encouragement. For Captain Kelley McCormick and the officers assigned to District A-7 in East Boston, the opportunity to make a difference came yesterday, October 2, 2018, when the faculty and staff at East Boston Central Catholic approached the good Captain and his officers to ask and inquire if they'd be willing to provide a police escort to one of their students, a little boy battling leukemia.

Well, as you can see in the video which is linked below, the men and women of the BPD were more than happy to oblige a request that left a first-grader feeling like a million bucks and our officers even richer. And, to this young boy and his family, the men and women of the BPD would like them to know, we're always here to lend a helping hand or ride to school.

Super Vigilant Police Cadet Proves His Weight in Gold during Arrest of Liquor Store Robber on District A-7 in East Boston  

Super Vigilant Police Cadet Proves His Weight in Gold during Arrest of Liquor Store Robber in East Boston: For those unfamiliar with police jargon or call sign protocols within the Boston Police Department, every district station across the city has its own call sign. For example, officers who work at District E-13 in Jamaica Plain are known as ‘Jake’ units while officers assigned to District A-7 in East Boston are called ‘Gold’ units. Accordingly, a Boston Police Cadet assigned to District A-7 would be referred to as a Gold Cadet. Which brings us to our latest example of great police work and an incident involving a Gold Cadet in East Boston who is now being praised and credited for a gold-medal worthy response that led to the arrest of a suspect who may have gotten away with his crime were not for the quick response and composure-filled guidance of District A-7’s Gold Cadet. The facts and circumstances surrounding the original call are as follows: At about 9:30PM, on Friday, July 27, 2018, a Boston Police Cadet assigned to District A-7 (East Boston), herein referred to as the Gold Cadet, was in the area of 11 Bennington Street when he observed a white male wearing a light-colored shirt, baseball hat and black backpack sprint out of a liquor store juggling and clutching onto to several bottles of liquor. The Gold Cadet promptly approached an employee of the liquor store who confirmed to him that the individual seen running out of the store had, in fact, just stolen several bottles of liquor.

Sensing a golden opportunity to make his community safer, the Gold Cadet, quickly keyed the mic on his police radio and alerted officers in the area of the robbery, the suspect’s description and direction of flight. A short time later, thanks to the Gold Cadet’s good-as-gold broadcast, the suspect,a 36-year-old male from Boston, was apprehended in the area of 272 Meridian Street.

The suspect, who was issued a summons for Shoplifting, is expected to be arraigned in East Boston District Court at a later date. In the meantime, for his gold standard calm and composure while responding to a crime in progress, we offer thanks and praise to District A-7’s Gold Cadet.
