First Parish Dorchester is pleased to announce that Boston Police Commissioner William Gross will be attending our monthly Community Dinner on January 11, 2019. We invite neighbors to join us for the pot luck dinner. Please bring something to share or just come and enjoy an evening of food and conversation with the new Commissioner.   We look forward to hearing from the Commissioner on his plans for policing in Boston.

Commissioner Gross is the City of Boston’s first African-American Commissioner. He is a 33-year veteran of the Boston Police Department, joining in 1985. He grew up on Esmond Street in Dorchester after moving with his mother and two sisters from Maryland in 1975 when he was twelve. As Deputy Superintendent, Gross served as the Commander of Zone 2, which is comprised of Area B-2 Roxbury and Mission Hill, Area B-3 Mattapan, Area C-11 Dorchester, and Area C-6 South Boston. In this role, he coordinated with District Captains in their development of strategies to address crime trends and attended community meetings to address specific neighborhood crime concerns.
