Boston Police Department Adds Sweet Ice Cream Truck To Its Fleet

Law enforcement officers in Boston will be fighting…perceptions of the police with the newest addition to their vehicle fleet: an ice cream truck.

Announced by Mayor Walsh, Commissioner Evans, and Dick Parry of the Boston Police Foundation, the Ford Transit is the latest addition to the department’s Operation Hoodsie Cup, created in 2010 to enable officers to connect with thousands of kids in the community, while handing over free ice cream, donated by HP Hood Co.

If you had told me 30 years ago that the Boston Police Department would have an ice cream truck as part of its patrol force and my officers would be handing out Hoodsie Cups… I would’ve said you were crazy. But, I absolutely love the new truck and everything this program represents“, said Commissioner Evans, according to BPDNews. “The goodwill it generates between my officers and our city’s young people is undeniable and nothing short of remarkable and my only regret is that I wish we had started doing this 30 years ago.

Purchased by the Boston Police Foundation, wrapped with specific decals, and adorned with balloons to make it more child-friendly, the city’s latest and probably sweetest police cruiser has been unveiled during a special ceremony by the local authorities, with help from all the kids from Tobin Community Center.
