The police department near Boston that had the entire city on lock down following the marathon bombing is now asking locals for photos of the manhunt for their yearly calendar.  Pictures of police forcing people out of their homes and driving tanks down the street will be proudly displayed in the calendars, which will be sold for 10$ a piece.

Boston.com reported that, The Watertown Police Foundation is asking residents to submit photos for a 2014 calendar based on images from the dramatic April 19 manhunt that culminated in the capture of alleged Marathon bomber Dzhokhar 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,” said Watertown Police Foundation member Steve Messina. “There were signs of gratitude everywhere in town, signs of relief, expressions of overwhelming respect for our officers. This calendar is meant to capture the best of those ‘snapshots’ all in one place while also continuing to raise funds for the work that our police do.”[1]

It was also reported by Bloomberg Business that it costed $333 million dollars per day to shut down the city of Boston.  The loss of business from this shut down could put many struggling businesses under or put them at risk of being short on their rent.[2]
