Gordon Hallett came upon the aftermath of a rental truck rear-ending a car on South Huntington around 6:20 p.m. today.
have the authority to investigate traffic accidents?
For that matter, why do we persist with this wasteful and bureaucratic nonsense of special police departments for every City agency?
They don't . They most likely passed by and saw it before BPD got there . They are probably being helpful with traffic until BPD gets there .
Understaffed in the first place and recently endured some serious cuts to their department.
Remember...none of these people are human. No story, no family....
Label it beurocracy then attack it.
I like the way you think!
Does it really say "Housing Lice" on the car door? ;)
They should have a "School Lice" car!
That is hilarious and possible a deliberate placement on the part of someone who saw this?
Aren't Boston Housing Authority Police officers Special Boston Police Officers/Deputy Suffolk County Sheriffs, giving them jurisdiction anywhere in the city, or county for that matter?
No their jurisdiction is limited to specific public housing projects . They also do not have the ability to make motor vehicle stops ( ch 90 powers ). Same idea as campus officers.
Many campus officers are actually full fledged police officers - they can arrest you and everything. BU, Northeastern and MIT, for example.
