“Taste of the Caribbean” fundraising for Hurricane Maria Survivors
Boston, MA: In collaboration with the city of Boston, the Boston Police Department and the Latino Law Enforcement Group of Boston
(LLEGO Boston), are hosting several fundraisers that culminate on Sunday, October 22, 2017 at 500 Morton Street in Dorchester.
LLEGO will host a “Taste of the Caribbean” lunch and dinner event on Sunday, October 22nd from 11am to 7pm.
LLEGO Boston is a social group of law enforcement officers and citizens that have come together to promote community policing, engage with the community and encourage young people to consider law enforcement as a career. We formed in April 2017 and now have nearly 200 members from Boston and will soon expand to include Latino firefighters, EMS personnel, security companies, colleges & universities and other entities TBA. We possess a working board of 18 members that reports quarterly to the general membership. This board is comprised of 15 law enforcement members with three community activists. Since our inception, we have worked with the city of Boston and the Boston Police Department on issues that concern Latinos in our field. We have been fortunate to be well received by Mayor Walsh and Police Commissioner Evans. Presently, we have eight members deployed to Puerto Rico with 17 additional members to be deployed in the next few weeks. We are proud to assist in the aid to Puerto Rico
as many of us have roots in the Caribbean.
LLEGO Boston mission is to unite the knowledge and experience of Latino Boston Police Officers to promote diversity in law enforcement by furthering partnerships with the community through recruitment, education, and trust.
