The Department is saddened by the recent ruling of the United States District Court for the District of Rhode Island reducing the sentence Alfred Trenkler stemming from a conviction for his involvement in a 1991 bombing which killed Boston Police Officer Jeremiah Hurley and seriously injured Boston Police Officer Frank Foley. Our thoughts remain, as they always have, with the families of these officers and with the countless members of the Boston Police Department who put their lives on the line every day.
