Although Mullins's family are Bostonian to the extreme, Mullins seems not to have any trace of a Bostonian accent. And she seems to have grown up elsewhere: she uses the term 'submarine sandwich' whereas in Boston, it is called a 'hoagie'

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Levy tells Ashburn to go to the Boston Police's East Boston precinct, which is identified as G-5 in Area F; in reality it's A-7 in Area A. Also, a Boston Police district's identifier shares the same letter as the area it's in, so it should have been identified as either F-5 or located in Area G.

Plot holes 

At the end of the movie when Ashburn and Mullins arrive at the hospital to save Mullins brother, Ashburn is left in the foyer as Mullins races to the ward the brother was in. Part way to the ward, Mullins finds out the brother has been moved to another ward. However Ashburn goes directly to the "new" room even though she wasn't present when the doctor informed Mullin.
When Larkin reveals himself, Mullins is openly moving her hands around and even tries to untie her partner, in plain view of Larkin. He somehow doesn't seem to notice this; and when Julian comes back Mullins goes back to pretending to be tied up.
