Norwood PD Assist in Boston Marathon Security Measures

Members of the Norwood Police were present along the Boston Marathon route today in different capacities. The race traverses eight communities along more than 26 miles, and so no single law enforcement agency can handle it alone, especially given what occurred last year.

Officers Wennerstrand and Baguma worked alongside the Boston PD bike officers unit in the area of Hereford Street throughout the day. Officers Lopes and Fundora, deployed with Metro SWAT, provided security at an undisclosed location along the route. Detective Sergeant Rinn and Detective Giacoppo worked in a surveillance and intelligence capacity.

Chief Brooks thanks the officers of the NPD who were deployed in support of the police departments along the Marathon route for their long hours of hard work.
