Boston officials outline plan to fight summer crime

Fifty-five Boston police ­recruits will be deployed to walk streets and interact with residents in hot spots across the city this summer, one of many components of the city’s sweeping strategy to prevent violence during the months when it typically spikes.

“I’ve directed my summer safety team to do more this year, to be more proactive, more visible, and more available to the public than ever before,” Mayor Thomas M. ­Menino said during a press conference at City Hall to ­announce his plan to combat ­violent crime in the upcoming months.
