Summer Safety Kick-off a success

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Revere Housing Authority Commissioners and Staff, we would like to extend heartfelt gratitude to all who donated their time and resources to our Summer Safety Kickoff, held on Sunday June 25. We want to expressly thank the Revere Police Department, in particular Officer Lauria, Officer Singer, Sargent Mason and K9’s Walsh and Chance, Detective Bruker, and Officer Salvati; the Revere Police Athletic League’s (PAL), Kris Oldoni and his team; and the Revere Fire Department’s Lt. Erin Leary and her team, for the Police K9 and Drone demonstrations, Humvee and Gator rides, the fire trucks, fire and bike safety presentations, basketball clinics and many recreational games.  We also extend our gratitude to Louise Viarella of the Patriot’s Club who sang the National Anthem. This event was made possible through generous donations from the following: Revere Police Athletic League, Kelly’s Roast Beef, Bianco & Sons, Market Basket, and Point of Pines Yacht Club.  Our residents greatly benefit from activities such as this as they serve to bring people together, allowing us to provide an atmosphere for creating a strong sense of community, spirit and pride. Once again, your assistance in providing for our residents is greatly appreciated.

An honor to serve

Dear Editor:

It is an incredible honor to be named Interim Chief of the Revere Police Department. I have dedicated my life to this Department and the City of Revere. I will do everything I can during my time as Chief to improve public safety for all Revere residents.

The Revere Police Department is committed to providing quality policing every day. I look forward to working with all of the residents, business owners, elected officials and members of the department in the months ahead.

I know that Mayor Arrigo respects and appreciates the hard work of the men and women of the Revere Police Department, and wants to give them the tools and training they need to succeed. He and I both want to see the Police Department continue its emphasis on building strong relationships in the community.

Under my leadership, the Revere Police Department will work collaboratively with those conducting the outside organizational review. I know that a review will show the great work the Department does on a daily basis and will also show areas where we need to improve.

Together, we will work to strengthen what we already do well, and address areas in need of improvement. I look forward to this important work.

My goal will be to improve our customer service to the citizens of Revere while this review takes place. The Police are asked to wear many hats in this day and age of policing and we strive every day to do our very best.

I look forward to the challenge ahead and look forward to making new partnerships as I forge ahead. The men and women of this Department will continue to make Revere the best place to live and work.


James R Guido

Chief of Police
