Rest well, Officer Collier, your sacrifice saved many lives and set into motion the events that ended their cowardly attacks. Whether the bombs were meant for the campus itself or another target, you prevented them from having the time to harm those whose lives you swore to protect. A hero's welcome awaits you.

The MIT police are true community police in the best sense - protecting the bubble of MIT from the world without and creating a place safe from the demons so we can pursue our better angels. It is a terrible tragedy that Officer Collier lost his life literally guarding that line and keeping the campus safe. I hope his family, friends and fellow officers find some solace in this time of grief.

It's your time to rest in paradise, we will continue to serve and protect our schools, cities, and counties throughout the United States and I will never forget your courage and sacrifice. God Bless You & Your Family.

Dear Sean,
I am a MIT student's parent. My son, Max Tang, was a good friend of yours. My whole family mourns for your death and praise highly for your honorable deeds.

I didn't know Officer Collier, but I do know the MIT police.

I've been a member of the MIT community for almost 15 years; my entire adult life. Even as a freshman, on my own for the first time in a new city, I have always felt completely safe on campus, knowing that the CPs were just a blue light phone call away.

I'm incredibly sad that we've lost one of our brave and kind protectors. Officer Collier's family and all of the MIT Police have my sympathy and my gratitude.

As a wife and mother of MIT graduates, I cannot express how grateful I am to Officer Collier and the entire MIT Police Department for all they do to protect our students who work, study, and play all hours of the day.

Thank you for helping a mother feel her daughter is in good hands when she is so far from home. Our family is deeply indebted to you, and our prayers and thoughts go out to Officer Collier’s family and friends. He has left his mark on the world by the way he lived and the difference he made in the lives he touched.

Whether it was true or not, when I was a student at MIT we were told that if we should ever get in trouble (including with the Boston or Cambridge police) that we should call Campus Safety and that they would come and get us. Unlike at other colleges, our Campus Safety existed to keep US safe, not to protect the campus FROM us.

I wish I had known Sean when I was a student - he seems to have brought so much joy as well as security to the lives of all those he protected.

We grief as does the entire MIT family for the loss of Sean Collier, a member of our extended MIT family. Our prayers and thoughts are with his friends and family.

My sincere condolences to the family of Sean Collier.

The MIT Police serve the MIT community so graciously. I have had the honor of working with the MIT Police as a Crew Chief for MIT-EMS and can say that each and everyone of the officers puts the well-being of the MIT community before his own. MIT would not be the fine institution it is without the MIT Police and officers like Sean Collier.
