It is with tremendous sadness that the MIT Police Department announces the sudden passing of Sergeant Brian J. Sousa. Sergeant Sousa served our community for 23 years and was promoted to the rank of Sergeant in 2011. Before being promoted, Sergeant Sousa served in various roles in the patrol division and was an integral part of the MIT Police Honor Guard Unit. Brian, you will be remembered for your friendship, leadership, your generous spirit and incredible smile.

Officer Sean Collier

On April 18, 2013 the MIT Police lost a brother and a friend, Officer Sean Collier.  In order to honor him, we set up a scholarship fund that would send one self-sponsored recruit through the Lowell Police Academy annually as a student officer. May 2018 will mark the fifth year of this great Scholarship.
