The agreement was created by viewing best practices in other municipalities across the country with input from police departments and officers, the BPD Social Justice Task Force, the Harvard Law Criminal Jus- rice Program, and through com- munity feedback. =This is a positive develop- ment that brings the Boston Police Department even closer to implementing this important pilot program in the city," Com- missioner Evans said.
