D'Iberville officer is proud of his Boston colleagues

D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) -

Much of America watched law enforcement's every move as they closed in on and successfully captured the Boston Marathon suspect, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Friday evening.

"It just gave me the overwhelming sense of pride in those officers there and sense of joy, not just to be a law enforcement officer, but also an American and to see that unfold last week," D'Iberville Police Lt. Tim Hendricks said. "The amount of coordination and collaboration between agencies local, state, federal. It's truly a huge undertaking and they did a great job."

Hendricks said the Boston community should also be commended for their help.

"We go out there everyday and try to do the best we can to serve the public," Hendricks said. "We want to catch the bad guys every time, but we are in partnership with community and if we don't get people to buy into that and help us it makes our job much more difficult and we don't get the best results then."

Now that Tsarnaev is in custody officials must shift their focus to legal proceedings and searching for a motive.

"I can't speak to any of the injuries or what state he is in now but it does play a part in when and how they can question him. At some point they will deem it appropriate and they can talk to him," Hendricks said.

While the case is far from over Hendricks said a major victory can already be felt across the country.

"It was just a great feeling from everything down with in you have that bubbling inside of you that joy that we got him it's part of a community, it's like we are a part of them also."
