Bill Belichick is supporting the Watertown Police Department with a personalized touch. The New England Patriots coach got a Watertown Police Department hooded sweatshirt and customized it with a Patriots logo, Boston Strong ribbon, and cutoff sleeves, of course.
The Watertown Police said that they got a special request from the Patriots during the week for some police hats for team employees to wear during the draft. According to Watertown Patch, there was a joke at the time that a request would come in for a hooded sweatshirt. Sure enough, the call came in the next day.
Belichick showed off his hoodie during a press conference on Friday to discuss the team’s draft picks.
“To support the Watertown police. Unbelievable job they did … to support the people that protect our safety & our freedom … it’s what makes it possible for us to do what we do. I’m behind them all the way,” Belichick said of the sweatshirt, via the Patriots’ Twitter.
Watertown police apparently used to say they were part of Boston. But after the events that took place last Friday where they apprehended Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the whole world now knows who they are. We love the support from Belichick and the Pats.
