Some of these initiatives include Operation Impact, Operation Family Matters and Operation Responsibility & Accountability.

Please contact the Community Service Office at (617) 343-4278 for further details.

Key Programs Offered: 

* Operation Impact is a bi-weekly meeting with representatives from the district, citywide units, BHA, MBTA Police, District Attorney's Office, Attorney General's Office, U.S. Attorney's Office and Probation officials from Roxbury District Court. The focus of this group is on the identification of strategies to reduce the gun violence and the retaliatory shootings that often occur as a result. * Operation Family Matters is a weekly meeting of detectives and officers from the Community Service Office (CSO) that discuss the unsolved shootings. The officer from the CSO is responsible for maintaining a positive relationship with the victim and their family and urges them to share information that is crucial for investigators. Officers also rely upon the assistance of the Clergy, YSPN, BCYF Street workers and mentors from the community to assist in this program. * Operation Responsibility & Accountability is a district-based initiative that involves the assignment of all patrol officers to one or more Reporting Areas (R.A.) on the district so that each shift has an officer assigned to every RA. The officers, working under the direction of a beat team supervisor, assume ownership and responsibility for addressing crime and quality of life issues that occur on their RA. The officers from the CSO are also involved in many programs that are designed to improve and foster the relationship between the youth and police officers. An officer conducts Officer Friendly presentations to after-school programs in various schools throughout the district. In addition, the officer, in partnership with the Police Activities League (P.A.L.) equips a B-2 Fun-Day Van that visits the parks and community centers on the district and provides games, music and other fun activities for the children. An officer from the CSO is also involved with the "Youth & Police Partnership" (YPP), which is an entity of the Children's Services of Roxbury. This is a program that has proven to be effective in discussing and restoring relationships between the youth and police officers. A key component of this program is the "KNOW THE LAW" play that the youth and officers perform and which emphasizes the pressures and consequences to any negative decisions that are made. Some of the other programs that the officers from the CSO are involved with are the B-2 Youth & Family Safety Day, B-2 Christmas Party, Junior Police Academy as well as fishing trips and outings to amusement parks such as Canobie Lake and Six Flags.
