On May 15, 2015, the NEIT Criminal Justice Club took a field trip to Boston to visit the Massachusetts Law Enforcement Police Memorial. This trip coincided with National Police Memorial Day. The memorial, located in Ashbury Park, is just steps away from the Massachusetts State House. The names of all Massachusetts police officers killed in the line of duty are inscribed on the memorial including the most recent name to be added, that of Off. Sean Collier of the MIT Police Department who was killed by the terrorists responsible for the Boston Marathon Bombings. A police officer is killed in the line of duty in the United States approximately every 56 hours. May, 2015, saw 16 line of duty deaths nationwide. The students also visited the finish line of the Boston Marathon, which has taken on a new meaning since the events of April, 2013.
