Boston Police Captain James Hasson has been assigned to BPD District A-1 (North End / Waterfront, Charlestown, Chinatown, Beacon Hill and Downtown Boston) replacing Captain Thomas Lee who recently resigned to take the Chief of Police position in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. The announcement was made at the October 3rd North End Public Safety Meeting, chaired this month by Officer Teddy Boyle.
