Much-Anticipated Patrick Rose Report Calls For Changes But Doesn’t Name Names

Published on 29 Jul 2021, 22:15
Acting Mayor Kim Janey on Thursday released the much-anticipated report on disgraced former cop Patrick Rose, who remained on the force for two decades despite a criminal complaint and subsequent internal investigation in the 1990s into credible allegations that he had sexually assaulted a child. The report, however, focuses on general policy changes that are needed, rather than specific decisions made by key individuals — no officers besides Rose are named. In for Jim Braude, Adam Reilly was joined by Yawu Miller, senior editor of the Bay State Banner, and Saraya Wintersmith, who covers Boston City Hall for GBH News.
