Boston PD Seeks Jurisdiction Over Waterfront

June 02, 2011  | 

Following a Memorial Day weekend melee that caused authorities to swarm Carson Beach, city officials are seeking to claim police authority over Boston's waterfront, territory that now belongs to State Police.

Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis said yesterday that city police are better equipped to respond to crimes in areas such as the Seaport District and Carson Beach that technically are part of Boston but that fall under State Police jurisdiction.

"What I'm looking for is to have Boston police police neighborhoods in Boston,'' Davis said in an interview. "It just makes sense, because we have the contacts in the community, the relationships in the community, and the day in, day out interaction. It's logical.''
