Petition Summary & Background:
Since the inception of the Massachusetts Association of Minority Law Enforcement Officers (M.A.M.L.E.O.) in 1968, the City of Boston has resisted the reality of the persistent and prevalent lack of representation as it pertains to persons of color. Mayor Thomas Menino has falsely created a notion of a solid commitment to diversity. Though the Boston Police Department (BPD) has made small incremental increases, they have not been sustained and today in 2009 - the Boston Police Department has once again lowered the percentage of persons of color in key positions.
Action Petitioned for:
We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge our leaders to act now to address the lack of representation of persons of color in the command and supervisory structure of the Boston Police Department.
