SUFFOLK COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT TAKES PART IN NATIONAL NIGHT OUT


Boston – Suffolk County Sheriff Andrea J. Cabral received warm welcomes across Boston Tuesday, August 1, at sites of Boston’s 2006 National Night Out. After attending the Coffee with the Chiefs at Fenway Park, Sheriff Cabral rode in the cavalcade with Boston Mayor Tom Menino, Acting Police Commissioner Albert Gosin, officers from the Sheriff’s Department and Sheriff’s Department K-9 unit, officers from the Boston Police Department, and others, to visit National Night Out celebrations in China Town, the South End, Jamaica Plain, Dorchester, and Roxbury.

Volunteers from the Sheriff’s Department also took part in National Night Out activities. With the help of Judith Wright, Director of the Boston Police Department Crime Watch Unit, and Joe Porcelli, Civilian Community Service Officer for the Boston Police Department, the Sheriff’s Department was able to set up tables at all twelve National Night Out sites in Boston. Officers and civilian staff handed out safety tip coloring books and plastic junior deputy badges to children and also provided child ID fingerprinting for parents to take home in case of an emergency.

“National Night Out is such a wonderful event,” said Sheriff Cabral. “It is so encouraging to see members of the community coming out and coming together, despite the heat, to show their support for peace. I’m honored to be able to be a part of this.”
