Boston Police targeting summertime crime

Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis said Thursday that he hopes to cut gun crimes in half this summer during Boston’s most violent months: July and August, when the city typically sees about 37 shootings each month.

The department’s ranks were boosted as 28 members of the force were promoted and one new officer was named to the force during a ceremony Thursday.
