To the family and coworkers of Officer Collier,

I am truly sorry for your loss. I understand the pain and emptiness associated with losing an Officer. April 17, 2003 my department lost its first officer, a cherished loved one and valued coworker, Officer Mary Ann Collura was killed while coming to the aid of another officer.

Since 1997, I have been an active participant with the Police Unity Tour, a L.E. charity whose mission is to "Ride for those who died" helps to raise awareness for and money to support the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington DC. Each year I ride, I do so in the memory of a fallen comrade. This year I would like to honor your officer by riding in his memory. I know this helped me when I lost my officer, I hope it will do the same for you. My thoughts & prayers are with you.

Fraternally yours,
Sgt. Rich Schultz (ret)

Officer Collier,

As a young officer starting my own career I can't help but see how similar we were with your passion for this profession and desire to protect the good from the bad. Today on this Easter Sunday I want to take the chance to say that you are, and will always be remembered for the ultimate sacrifice you made.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. May you rest in peace and may the lord give peace and strength to your family and to your associates in the law enforcement community at this one year memorial.

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.
