Yesterday, members of the Boston College Police Department and the Department of Public Safety hosted its Annual Senior BBQ and Cook-out. Police and Public Safety personnel worked hard manning grills, and serving food to our seniors. This is always a well anticipated event and one that we have enjoyed doing for the past 8 years. Congratulations to our graduating seniors.

On this Peace Officer's Memorial Day, join us as we pay tribute to one of our very own and remember the sacrifice he paid serving this community. BC Police Officer Thomas Devlin succumbed to injuries on April 6, 2007 that he sustained in September 1988 when he was exposed to military-grade teargas that had been set off in the ventilation system of a college residence hall. Officer Devlin was one of the first officers to respond to the scene and immediately assisted with evacuating residents from the hall. The exposure to the chemicals caused Officer Devlin to suffer burns to over 65% of his lungs. He was hospitalized several times with viral infections as a result of the injuries. The person who set off the tear gas was never identified. His lungs suffered further damage in May 1999 when he responded to a fire in another residence hall and was exposed to the smoke while evacuating residents. He was hospitalized again after that incident and was forced to medically retire in 2004. Officer Devlin had served with the Boston College Police Department for 21 years. #LODD

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. Join us as we pay our respect to those officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect the communities in which they serve.

Earlier today, we recognized Ryan Little & Laine Langenbrunner, two Boston College students who provided conspicuous service to the greater Boston community during the 122nd Running of the Boston Marathon, on Monday, April 16th. On Monday, April 16th runners of the Boston Marathon ran along the same winding course the Marathon has followed for many decades ‍—‌26 miles of roads and city streets, starting in Hopkinton and passing through 6 Massachusetts cities and towns, to finish on Boylston Street in Boston. This year however, runners were faced with inclement weather where it rained throughout the day, heavy at times, with temperatures in the 40's and gusty winds. This type of weather certainly presented its challenges to runners. During the passing of the elite runners, several began experiencing signs and symptoms of hypothermia. Students Little, Langenbrunner along with Kaitlin Burt and James Carelli (not pictured) immediately recognized that runners being brought into the lobby were in need of assistance and jumped right in to assist with first responders caring for the patients. Students grabbed as many towels, jackets, blankets and other articles of clothing to help wrap runners up in and keep them warm, while keeping them in high spirits. The students were presented with certificates of appreciation, official BCPD shoulder patch, #WEAREBC lapel pin and $5.00 gift certificate to White Mountain Creamery. We are proud of these young women and man who demonstrated being "Men and Women for others".

Sharing for our friends at the Fort Worth TX Police Department. A little Mother's Day humor. Happy Mother's Day to all those Mom's out there that do their part to keep us safe.

BCPD would like to wish all of our students good luck on their exams! From all of us at the police department, keep up the good work in the final push, we know you will do great! #WEAREBC

Today, members of the Boston College Police Department and Boston College EMS were recognized on the field for the annual Boston College Baseball Public Safety game. Tossing out the first pitch were Boston College Police Department Officer Michael Wheeler and Boston College EMT Alex Statkevich. In March of this year, Officer Wheeler, along with Boston College EMS personnel, responded to a 911 medical call where a student was experiencing anaphylactic shock. Upon arrival, Officer Wheeler learned that a friend, while attempting to assist the victim, accidentally deployed the EpiPen on herself, thus presenting not just one medical victim, but two. Officer Wheeler and BC EMT Alex Statkevich quickly identified that the second individual needed medical attention and requested additional resources. While Officer Wheeler deployed his department issued EpiPen on the original victim, BC EMT Statkevich, along with his team rendered medical aid to the second victim, providing vital stabilization of oxygen until an ambulance arrived.

Yesterday, we spent a few hours at O'Neill Library sharing Coffee, Cookies, and Hot Chocolate with our hard-working students. We also walked on rounds in the library, identifying laptops and belongings left unattended, and stayed with them until their owners returned. Our goal was to spread awareness surrounding leaving items unattended in public places. Catch us next week during finals week back in the library!

Reflecting back on Autism Awareness Month, we at BCPD were very happy to host two events in support of the movement.
