An Answer To My Prayers

James Boulay

James Boulay
Patrolman, Bridgeport (CT) Police Department


On May 9, 2017, Officer James Boulay was the answer to my prayers. He responded with incredible courage, honor and self-sacrifice while displaying a well-disciplined skillset that indicated integrity. While in pursuit of two suspects in a stolen vehicle, he demonstrated cultural competency as he worked to diffuse the event by presenting multiple opportunities for compliance. Although he ultimately had to discharge his weapon because his life was in danger as was mine, it was a last resort.

I am submitting this today to genuinely thank him for being an honorable man; he is an asset to the Bridgeport, Connecticut community and deserves the upmost respect. I am a true witness to his performance.
