Last night, our members, yet again, stood tall and faced a relentless and unruly mob at Carson Beach in South Boston. A number of these perpetrators were arrested in Boston, three of which were under the age of 15. Our members will continue to enforce the laws throughout the Commonwealth especially towards those who assault our Troopers. This is not just a reminder to those who participate in these activities, but also to the parents that have allowed their children and teenagers to cause mayhem. Our message today remains the same — We will not let the safety of our community be jeopardized. These actions are unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Thank you to our membership, be safe, be smart, and come home unharmed.Massachusetts State Police ... See MoreSee Less

On May 19 2022 around 2:00 am, our members from Station H-4, SP Boston arrested a 24-year-old male from Lawrence on numerous charges in the area of Charlesgate East and Commonwealth Ave in Boston following a traffic stop. In addition to the charges of OUI Liquor, Negligent Operation and marked lanes violations, he also now faces firearm and drug charges. Inside of the vehicle our members located a firearm as well as copious amounts of prepackaged marijuana. The operator of this vehicle did possess a license for the firearm, however his possession of it was illegal due to his intoxication. Strong work by all of our Troopers involved in this arrest. ...

Last night, our members responded to multiple calls for fights, disorderly and unruly behavior, fireworks, and underage drinking among other issues at both Carson Beach in Boston and Revere Beach. When our Troopers arrived, they were met with violence, disrespect, and criminal behavior. Scenarios like these are difficult to handle, but especially so with a Department that has critically low staffing levels.On Revere Beach, a total of seven people ranging from juvenile to 61 years old were arrested on various charges. Some of these charges included OUI, disorderly conduct and domestic violence. On Carson Beach in Boston, our members with the help of Boston, Transit, and UMass Police faced a similar situation. Thousands of beach goers refused to disperse after countless fights broke out. The unruly crowd became a major safety concern. Our Troopers were confronted with a large crowd, some of whom attacked the responding Troopers while they were effecting arrests. One member had his cover set on fire while trying to preform an arrest. A total of five people were charged in relation to the incidents at Carson Beach. Again, this included juveniles as well as adults with charges of assault and battery on a police officer, interfering with the police, and resisting arrest. Going to the beach with family, friends and loved ones is a longtime treasured New England tradition. Everyone should be able to enjoy the beautiful weather and beachfront at DCR properties the Commonwealth has to offer. It is disheartening that a group of individuals have created such an unsafe environment that families, and other communities members are not able to partake at the beach without fear of violence. The Association would like to thank all of our members who responded yesterday as well as our law enforcement partners who helped bring a chaotic situation to an end safely.Message to the Public: We will not let the safety of our community be jeopardized.
