Commissioner Kathleeen M. O’Toole, BPD college liaison Captain William Evans, and members of the Boston Police Department met with representatives from student government associations and student media at Police Headquarters this past Monday afternoon. Among the schools represented: Boston University, MIT, Northeastern University, and Suffolk University.
Commissioner O’Toole and the students discussed topics such as: Operation Home Safe, the Family Justice Center, the new keg tracking ordinance, upcoming large events, the new laboratory about to be built in Boston, and safety tips for students to protect themselves against residential break-ins and property theft.
This was one of a series of informal meetings that Commissioner O’Toole has had with student leaders and student media to discuss issues of mutual concern. These meetings are part of Operation Student Shield, a program begun in 2004 to enhance student safety and quality of life in our neighborhood
