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.
