This police/community outreach initiative is a tremendous success and the kids truly enjoy the time with our officers at our Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. In addition, it was great to meet our new US Attorney for Massachusetts, Attorney Rachael Rollins. I want to thank her for coming out to Springfield for this wonderful police/community event and I am looking forward to working with her for the betterment of all our residents and business community.”
