On details, BHI leads the way

Seeking to address a nearly $20 billion infrastructure shortfall, Governor Deval Patrick, Senate President Therese Murray and House Speaker Salvatore DiMasi expressed an interest in reforming the state's costly police detail system at a press conference yesterday. Excessive police detail costs have been identified in the past by a 2004 Beacon Hill Institute study, Police Details: Protection or Perks?

Here's a November 2007 Globe op-ed by David Tuerck on police details.
