Another lost Hero, Thank You, From our President

Our nation has laid to rest another Hero. 

 Officer Sean Collier, police officer at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was tragically killed in the events of last week which led to the capture of the Boston Marathon bombers.  At the young age of 27, Officer Collier had always wanted to be a police officer, and chose to do so protecting the campus of MIT.  At the Maryland Classified Employees Association, Inc., we have the honor of representing University police officers across the State, from Salisbury University, to Bowie State University, to Frostburg State University. These are not "campus security guards,", rather, they are sworn police officers, with all the responsibilities and pressures of law enforcement. They are a presence on and
off campuses, in rural and urban areas of our state, ensuring the safety of students, faculty, and members of the public - during major sporting
events, minor campus incidents. and often very volatile situations. University police officers protect campuses and communities, and they, like Officer Sean Collier, deserve our respect, our admiration, and our thanks.
