Boston Herald Story- "Advocates urge BPD to promote Hispanics"

Boston Herald Photo
Boston, MA- A very important aspect of the mission of the MLPO is to create a professional association that provides support, advocacy, individual and professional development to its members; to improve and increase diversity in Law Enforcement, and to bridge the gap between the community and the police.

On Thursday December 4, 2014 the Boston Herald published an article (click here to view) featuring MLPO President and Founder Jacobo Negron carrying out that mission as he highlighted the Association's advocacy of the Latinos in the Boston Police Department who are eligible to be promoted to the rank of Sergeant.

This is a concerted effort to support and advocate for our members and potential members, as well as to support the Boston Police Department in its efforts to be representative of the community it serves. Commissioner Evans has made it clear that he is committed to diversifying all ranks within the department and the MLPO applauds his efforts to date and will continue to advocate for more representation going forward.
