Thanks for the comments during and after the challenge.

This police officer was patrolling the streets during the Boston Marathon on April 20th. He seemed such the gritty character, I just had to photograph him.

I like the tones in this image. Nice DOF. Composition is well done (rule of thirds). This is my favorite of the bunch.

The bokeh (blurred background) looks funny. Like it was sharpened. Guess you can't selectively sharpen in Basic. Otherwise, I like it and it looks great in black and white.

The grizzled veteran cop is always a suitable subject for candid photography and this borders on being the perfect piece of photo journalism. The sense of concentration and "seen it all" visage is a homage to police officers who toil every day to protect and serve from the mundane traffic duty to preventing serious crime, this is an outstanding effort on the part of the author to portray an uncommon sympathetic view of law enforcement officers. One minor issue might be a little better crop on the left, but it certainly is very effective as it is. An excellant conversion only compliments the overall capture. Well done.
