On April 15, 2013, less than a mile from the offices of American Police Beat partner Blauer, the world was shaken by the horrific Boston marathon bombing. Seconds after the blast hundreds of local and state law enforcement and emergency medical personnel made the decision to run towards the sites to assist the wounded and control the scene.
This level of bravery was maintained throughout the weeks following as local, state, and federal officials worked to ensure public safety and order while searching for the criminals who perpetrated this horrific act of terrorism. We salute the men and women of the Boston Police Department, MA State Police, Boston Fire & EMS, and the local and federal FBI agents for their selfless work in protecting the public during this tragic event.
Blauer went a step further and invited Boston Police Officer Rachel McGuire to appear in their 2014 catalog. You may have seen her picture on the cover of the Marathon issue of Sports Illustrated with David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox. Rachel is the newest addition to the Blauer team of models, all of whom are active duty law enforcement professionals. www.blauer.com
