Mass. police to make calendar from bomber manhunt photos
Proceeds from the calendars will go to the Watertown Police Foundation
WATERTOWN, Mass. — A Massachusetts police association is asking for photos of the search for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to be included in a calendar dedicated to the April 19 manhunt.
The Watertown Police Foundation says it is looking for "positive" photos that "highlight the valor" of police in the Boston suburb of Watertown, which was locked down as authorities went door to door in search of Tsarnaev.
“While we will never be able to put into words our gratitude for what our police did, we can try to let the photos from that night in April speak for themselves. There were signs of gratitude everywhere in town, signs of relief, expressions of overwhelming respect for our officers," foundation board member Steve Messina said in a statement.
Proceeds from the sale of the $13 calendars will go to the Watertown Police Foundation. The deadline for photo submissions is Sept. 30, according to the group's website.
