BOSTON — In a touching example of community policing, detectives and officers from the Boston Police Department’s Hyde Park District E-18 recently went the extra mile to return a stolen bicycle to a child and repair the damages.

The bike was reported stolen from the Hyde Park area on May 18, and the officers were quick to respond to the theft.

After recovering the bike, they noted its condition and chose not to simply return it as is.

Instead, they arranged for repairs to ensure the bike was in good working order for its young owner.

The child’s joy and gratitude upon receiving the restored bicycle were clear, highlighting the positive impact of the officers’ thoughtful gesture.

The act of kindness by the officers not only returned a treasured possession but also reinforced the trust and connection between the police and the community.

The Boston Police Department is continuing its investigation into the theft and asks anyone with information to contact the District E-18 Detectives at (617) 343-5607.
