MACJ students team with the BPD for safer neighborhoods

Vandalism. Larceny. Illegal drugs. Aggravated assault. These are just some of the many forms of blight crime affecting our neighborhoods today.
To help find solutions to reduce blight crime in a Roxbury neighborhood, the Boston Police Department (BPD) sought out the Master of Arts in Criminal Justice (MACJ) Program at Curry College as its academic partner for a third consecutive year.

“This project has become a huge opportunity for us and Curry College to jointly leverage our resources in a positive way to benefit the community,” said BPD’s Sgt. Samil Silta.
"If I could do it, anybody can do it."
