I have made arrangements with Aliza Rodriguez, from the Boston Police Department’s Neighborhood Crime Watch Unit, to have 100 police whistles dropped off at The Nazzaro Center sometime today.
The number of whistles being made available is currently dictated by supply. Ms. Rodriguez said we will see what the demand looks like and go from there.
The whistles will be made available (to adults) at the front desk of the Nazzaro Center (just ask the attendant) during their regular hours of operation:
-Monday through Friday: 6.00am – 9.00pm
-Saturday: 10.00am – 5.00pm
***FID Card / pepper spray update: In response to my inquiry to Sgt. Lema RE: residents wanting to be able to apply to get their FID card for pepper spray at the local A-1 police station (on New Sudbury St.), rather than having to go down to the Ruggles police headquarters:
“David, Unfortunately, everyone that applies must be fingerprinted at headquarters. It takes 6-8 weeks after the processing to actually receive the card. Sgt Tom Lema”
