In the days following the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001, Richard Wells, Jr., the current police chief, received a call for help – not from anyone in Milton – but from a friend in the NYPD Command Center. The voice on the other end of the phone was Inspector Jim Rogers, who was assigned to the Commissioners Office, and he was in need of supplies.

Kids will just come and hang out in my office during study hall; it’s an opportunity for them to vent. They …
