WEST ROXBURY -- Dozens of young Dedham residents allegedly partied with booze in Millenium Park earlier this month and were caught by police.
Boston Municipal Police corralled and detained 42 Dedham residents, ages 15 to 20, who were reportedly drinking alcohol and trespassing in the West Roxbury park at about 11:30 p.m. on Nov. 1.

All will be summoned to West Roxbury District Court Nov. 28 and charged with trespassing, public drinking and being a minor in possession of alcohol, said Municipal Officer Keith Kaplan.

The Boston Municipal Police is separate from the regular police force. Its officers patrol anything owned by the city, including parks and public schools. Every night, the police secure Millenium Park at 8 p.m., locking the gate, Kaplan said.

About 10:30 p.m. on Nov. 1, Kaplan said he received a call from an off-duty municipal officer, who said a large group of kids were in the park.

Kaplan and officers Kyle Wilcox, Joseph Pepicelli and Julia Moreshead, of the anti-crime unit, responded. They noticed that the gate was open and unlocked. Cars were also blocking the fire lane, Kaplan said.

Several officers went to the top part of the park. Another two-man team responded.

"There were hundreds of kids everywhere," Kaplan said, adding that some fled as police approached. "They were drinking and sitting in the middle. It was like a huge party."

The youths reportedly had kegs of beer with them, and cans and bottles were littered about. Moreshead nabbed more than 20 youths near the entrance and escorted them to the top, Kaplan said.

The officers took the youths' identification and instructed everyone to sit in a circle, Kaplan said. Then they made them clean up the mess in the park.

"(The kids) were saying they were being pushed out of Dedham by the police, so they went to West Roxbury," Kaplan said.

District E-5 Police Capt. Timothy Murray said he is very grateful for the assistance of the Boston Municipal Police.

The district has a zero-tolerance policy with regard to underage drinking, Murray said. With a large area to patrol and finite finances and manpower, Boston Police's law enforcement partnerships, such as that with the Boston Municipal Police, are the "wave of the future," he said. \:D/

What happened? I saw yesterday on Channel 7 @ 6 O'Clock that the dozens of Dedham kids arrested at Millenium Park were at West Roxbury District Court and all the cases were thrown out. Nobody was there to bring forth the complaints it seems.

Sounds like a great job was sidelined by the Mass Trial Court. It would seem to me either paperwork was lost or faxed to a wrong place. I think the cases warrented going forward & maybe dismissal if a small charge was levied. Seems like the same old Mass politics as usual. I wonder how many of those kids parents were cops...................... :-k

Teens off hook for park party
By Daily News Transcript
Saturday, November 29, 2003


Forty-two Dedham teens busted for drinking at Millennium Park in West Roxbury earlier this month were let off the hook in court yesterday, as long as they stay out of trouble for the next three months.

During a closed-door, show-cause hearing, a clerk magistrate at West Roxbury District Court ordered the case continued without a finding, according to a spokesman for the Suffolk County District Attorney's office.

Since those little jerks like our parks so much they should have been forced to clean them up for the next 6 months or more . That would have been the least I would have made them do. :evil:

Did this line elude everyone? I just read a whole article about BMP's complete involvement in this. Shouldnt the BMP be thanking BPD for staying away?

Why should they thank BPD for staying away? It was BMP's primary area anyway.

BPD should be saying "Good Job"..not "Thankful for their assistance"... it was ALL BMP.

GOOD WORK BMP!!

All CWOF's?? well that sucks.
