With all the stories about tension between police and citizens, the Harvard Police Department has come up with a bonding idea I haven’t seen before.
Can anyone imagine a better way to humanize police officers than Harvard has come up with?
The following is the Department’s press release about its August 2nd National Night Out celebrationL
