Today marks 1 year. You will be honored today by MIT and the City of Cambridge and rightfully so. The MIT Police is a great department and I'm proud to be quite friendly with a number of those who work there. It is incredible what MIT has done to keep you in the forefront of everyone's memory. It's the right thing to do.

God Bless, now and forever, Brother.

I'm a criminal justice student with dreams of being an officer. I am currently in a Capstone class and was asked to dedicate it to an officer who has fallen while in line of duty. I did my research and was truly touched by your story. I aspire to be an officer like you Mr. Collier and go out of my way to help others. You are an inspiraton to me and because of that my capstone success I dedicate to you, may you rest in peace.

My deepest condolences to the family, members of the department, and those served, at the loss of this officer. May faith, family, friends and time join together to ease everyone’s pain at this time of loss.

While many other career choices were certainly available, this officer chose to protect his fellow man, and for this we give everlasting thanks. As the Good Lord hath said, “Blessed are the Peacemakers.”

Thank you for your service, your convictions and moral character, as well as your devotion to duty. May you now rest in peace, knowing your fellow brothers and sisters will watch over your family and continue the Watch!

Thank you sir for your service to the community and your willingness to fight against the very evil that took your life. May God welcome you home to a well deserved rest.

I know a lot of the people you met probably looked a little down on you for being a "campus cop" but your work with those students gave them an awesome example of what a LEO is supposed to be. You showed them that this profession is about much more than just writing tickets and breaking up parties. You may have been the first and only positive interaction some of those kids had with a cop, and for that you are owed a debt of gratitude by each and every member of the MIT community.

Your sacrifice meant even more and we will never forget the life you lived, the example you endeavored to be or the difference you made in the community.
