Members of the Boston College Police Department took part in a special event this month that honored some of the area’s most exceptional athletes and their families. Eight BCPD officers and two civilian volunteers joined fellow law enforcement representatives from across the state for the fourth annual “Cruiser Convoy” to provide an exciting and colorful kickoff – along with a giant helping of heartfelt support – to athletes in the Massachusetts Special Olympics competition on June 18.
“Every officer who participated left the event humbled,” said Patrol Officer Jeffrey Postell, who helped to organize the department’s role in the convoy event. “We have never been so personally rewarded as we were that day.”
Three BC cruisers joined the convoy of more than 80 law enforcement vehicles that converged on the Allston athletic fields of Harvard University from the west, north and south – all arriving with lights flashing and sirens wailing, to the delight of the athletes and their families just as the day’s competitive events were starting.
The police officers, representing departments from Pittsfield to Provincetown as well as a number of campus and special service forces, spent the day with the athletes and their families, cheering them on in their competitions and presenting medals, certificates of achievement and small gifts to those who participated in the various athletic events.
