Norman Rockwell brought Ed Locke and Massachusetts state trooper Richard Clemens to the Howard Johnson's restaurant in Pittsfield to be photographed for The Runaway. In the decade's since the painting was first published, Clemens has seen it "become synonymous with law enforcement" conveying the mission to protect and serve. "Wherever you go, in state police agencies or law enforcement agencies, you'll find a picture of The Runaway hanging somewhere."
