The Chicago Police Department is sending five detectives and a sergeant to Boston Friday to help with the investigation of the marathon bombings.

Police News Affairs said in a statement the detectives and sergeant are being sent at the request of Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis as the manhunt continues for the second bombing suspect.

Supt. Garry McCarthy said he spoke with Davis Friday morning and "reiterated our offer of assistance and resources as Boston deals with unique challenges to solve a despicable crime."

Detectives will travel to Boston later Friday to assist Boston Police in the investigation, McCarthy said.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel, in Washington D.C., said he too offered assistance to Boston as needed.

"What happened in Boston this week has affected all of us and we must stand together in
the face of these cowardly acts," Emanuel said. "Chicago stands in solidarity with Boston and we are ready to help in any way we can."
