As a parent of two MIT students, I want to let Sean's family and the MIT Police know how much I appreciate the extra care MIT Police have for all MIT students. While the Cambridge Police Department is awesome, it is the MIT officers who have the opportunity to form tighter bonds with the students, which leads to officers who have the advantage to do their job with a higher level of compassion and insight because they have the opportunity to get to know the students and the campus.Thank you.

To the family and loved-ones of officer Collier: I am deeply sorry for the loss of Sean who gave his life for our community, protecting it against harm and terror. He stood for, but those who killed him stood against the values of our community, above all the belief that lives are precious and that no one may take the life of another. His sacrifice will always be remembered as a symbol of our community's dedication to the principles for which he put his life in jeopardy to defend that higher principle. May his loss be the last such loss to our community and an example to others.

As an MIT parent, knowing that the MIT Police Dept.was always on duty to protect our children gave me tremendous comfort. As the daughter of a NYC FDNY Lieutenant, I thank Sean and all of the MIT Police for their service to the community they protect. Those that provide service to our communities are rare individuals, heros all, that run towards danger when instinct tells us all to run away. My profound condolences to Sean's family. May you find some comfort in the number of lives he's touched.
