Twelve more names were added to the 9/11 memorial wall at 1 Police Plaza, making the number of officers dead from 9/11-related illness greater than the number of officers killed in the terror attacks.
The city honored its fallen heroes this week in a moment of solemn remembrance in Battery Park.
“The six men we honor today were heroes,” said Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. “They gave their lives in service to the public, to the cause of making New York City safe for all. Today they join the roll call of honor that is our Hall of Heroes.”
