Officer Eberlein, it has been 105 years since you were taken from us. I am sorry that it has taken this long to discover and memorialize the sacrifice you, your family and the Boston Police Department made for the city. I am honored to be the first to recognize that sacrifice.

New England law enforcement has continued to thrive, learn and become safer due to the traditions and sacrifices you, your family, and many others have made for us. Thank you for your law enforcement service.

Chief (Ret) Steven Marshall
