New District A-1 Police Captain Jim Hasson Talks With Residents About Loud Parties at North End Public Safety Meeting [Video]


Captain James “Jim” Hasson talked with residents this week at the November North End Public Safety Meeting along with Sgt. Thomas Lema from Boston Police District A-1. Captain Hasson previously worked in the North End about nine years ago before being promoted to captain in Roxbury and then West Roxbury. Going way back, Hasson was once a lifeguard at the North End Mirabella Pool.

The number of serious crimes are down significantly in the North End. In October, only five “Part I” crimes were reported versus 25 last year. Quality of life complaints remain high with 22 loud party calls in the last 30 days.
