8 CAN’T WAIT
The Boynton Beach Police Department is compliant with #8CantWait, a project of Campaign Zero that seeks to bring positive change to police departments nationwide. The principles of this initiative are equally important to members of our community who have reached out to voice similar sentiments. Boynton Beach Police Chief Michael G. Gregory ordered a review of department policies to ensure our compliance and make revisions where deemed necessary. On July 21, he presented the agency’s response to the #8CantWait initiative during a City of Boynton Beach Commission meeting.
