While it's still not clear if the New England Patriots will be in this year's Super Bowl, it is clear that members of the Boston Police Department will be appearing in coverage of the big game.

Boston police officers who responded to the bombings at the Boston Marathon will appear in a taped segment to air during the pregame coverage on Fox, according to the department.

Newly named police Commissioner William Evans, Patriots owner Robert Kraft, former Patriot players Matt Chatham and Joe Andruzzi and other police officers taped a segment at the Boston Public Library in Copley Square on Friday. In the segment, current and former NFL players read the Declaration of Independence as a way to honor the country and great Americans, Boston police said.


According to the Boston Police Department, Kraft requested that Boston police officers joined him in the segment.

This year's Super Bowl will take place Feb. 2.
