SHERIFF TOMPKINS TAKES PART IN REVERE POLICE SUBSTATION OPENING

Sheriff Steven W. Tompkins addressed Revere residents and members of the law enforcement community during the opening ceremony for the Revere Police Department’s Community Resource Office substation.


Suffolk County Sheriff Steven W. Tompkins recently stood with Mayor of Revere Dan Rizzo, Revere Police Chief Joseph Cafarelli, other representatives of local law enforcement and members of the Revere community to help celebrate the opening of Revere’s new police substation.

A satellite office of the Revere Police Department, the intent of the Community Resource Office (CRO) is “to develop crime prevention initiatives by working closely with neighbors and businesses in identifying problems, establishing a partnership with them to help address these problems, and employing a philosophy of ‘problem oriented policing’ to help solve problems for the long term.” The CRO will also assist residents and businesses with “non–emergency” issues while returning a police presence to Revere’s central business district as part of a plan to increase public safety.

“I want to offer congratulations to Mayor Rizzo and Chief Cafarelli for the establishment of their Community Resource Office,” said Sheriff Tompkins. “This new substation will allow the Revere PD to bolster their efforts around community policing, which will ultimately increase public safety for the community.”

Along with the CRO, there will also be an increase in district patrol units in the form of walking, driving, and bicycle–riding officers on Broadway.

Also present at the event were former Boston Police Commissioner Paul Evans, Retired U.S. Marshal Dennis Moschella, At–Large Revere City Councilor Brian Arrigo and other elected officials and members of the law enforcement community.

To contact the Community Resource Office regarding any non–emergency issues or to get involved with Crime Watch activities, please contact the CRO at (781) 629–3627.
