Today we remember Sean Collier

Sean was a member of the MIT Police Department when he was killed one year ago in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing. Prior to joining the MIT force, Sean had worked in a civilian position at the Somerville Police Department and would have joined the department as an officer last July. He was posthumously sworn in as a Somerville police officer in August.

The Public Safety Building will be open to the public for reflection, remembrances, or memorials in honor of Sean Collier and other individuals and families affected by the events in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon.
