Two of Boston's finest were honored in New York Thursday night for their heroic actions in the search for the Boston bombing suspects.

MIT Police Officer Sean Collier was posthumously awarded the Sergeants Benevolent Association's heroism award.

Officer Collier was shot and killed in his squad car after the marathon bombings during the search for the Tsarnaev brothers.

Also honored was Transit Officer Richard Donohue.

He's still recovering from wounds he suffered during a shootout with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
