Boston Police District 7 Annual Basketball Tournament – Sunday, June 27 at LoPresti Park in East Boston

Each year the officers from District 7 and surrounding neighborhoods join forces to run a summer basketball camp and tournament for young kids and teens. Dubbed the Boston Ballers program, the day long tournament brings young kids together, most of whom are at risk, and teams them against peers their own age.

The program also is a way for East Boston officers to build a relationship with the kids that live in the community.

Throughout the day, District 7’s Captain Frank Mancini, Community Officers Gary Marino and George Carino and Danny Long stopped by to cheer the kids on, help serve some barbecued hot dogs and hamburgers and get to know the kids in the neighborhood.
