E13 Captain\’s Message

District E-13 is a community oriented neighborhood police station of the Boston Police Department. We are committed to improving the quality of life and ensuring the safety of the neighborhoods we serve.

Our Community-Policing philosophy calls for progressive twenty-first century police-community practices. We aspire to create strong and vibrant partnerships with residents and businesses and to address the public safety issues in our neighborhoods. We continue to seek innovative ideas that will discover and establish the best practices available to work together with you, the community, in our quest to create a safer environment, solve problems and improve the quality of life of all of our residents and visitors.

We are very involved with the youth in our community. We have partnered with community centers and offer many youth trips, special events, and Holiday Parties. We are committed to working with the schools to educate the youth about the dangers of gangs.

I want to extend an invitation to you to join us at the Monthly Police-Community Relations meeting held on the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm. At this meeting, we will report on Part I Crime in our area on a monthly basis and address any community concerns. The meeting is held at Area E-13 on odd months and at Curtis Hall, 20 South St on even months.

We also hold a monthly District-wide Strategic Planning Committee meeting that takes place on the third Thursday of each month at District E-13 at 7:00 pm. The community-based Committee is made up of Boston Police personnel and community members. Recently, the committee put into place a formative plan, which centers attention on five identified focuses. Each of these focus groups has a sub-committee that work tirelessly to accomplish the goals and objectives listed in the plan. Attending these meetings will allow you to voice your opinion and help us attain our mission. Thank you for your time, and consideration.
