Ernie's dad Sam was the auxiliary coordinator when I was on the Braintree Auxiliary....super nice guy, but from what I heard, he was a broken man after Ernie was killed. I can't say I blame him. I've heard stories that the rainbow fleet was so that citizens would know which color cruiser was assigned to their neighborhood, so they could report any officers out of their area. That doesn't make sense, since I often get sent to areas of Quincy I haven't seen in ages when the priority calls start getting stacked. Kilv, were you on BAPD when the Dianne DeVanna murder happened? I'm thinking about using that incident as a case study for school, and as I'm sure you know, the first officers on-scene that night were auxiliaries. I may have to pick your brain via PM. Here's a trivia question for you.....when Braintree PD retired the rainbow fleet and went to blue & white cruisers, what was the motto on the sides of the cruisers?
