“Chief” Graham Horowitz


“Attention on deck!”

A police announcement usually heard when a commanding officer enters a room full of officers. Today, however, the commanding officer was not your typical seasoned veteran. It was 5th grade Pierce School student Graham Horowitz who was the Brookline Police Department’s “Chief for a Day”.

“Chief” Graham Horowitz was the winner of an essay contest where fifth graders from the eight Brookline elementary schools competed to win the right to be Chief of Police for a day.

“Chief” Horowitz was sworn in, had a police escort to the police station, stood roll-call and made a visit to various divisions in the police station.

“Chief” Horowitz learned the process in lifting finger prints, firearm safety, and hosted a Command Staff meeting. He assisted in bike enforcement, and even made an “arrest”.

We hope “Chief” Horowitz had fun and learned a little about what the officers do at BPD.
