Remembering 9/11

Remember 9/11

In Inspiring, National by rapsheet

In honor of the first responders that run towards danger, committed to serve and protect, willing to sacrifice their very lives, WE REMEMBER.

9/11 officers down

The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 caused more law enforcement line of duty of deaths than any other single incident in American history.

One officer was killed when United Flight 93 crashed into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania as he and other passengers attempted to regain control of the plane from the hijackers. 71 officers were killed when the two World Trade Center buildings collapsed in New York City. Dozens more have passed away in the years following 2001 as the direct result of illnesses contracted while working in the hazardous conditions immediately following the attacks in New York.

We pay tribute to the law enforcement officers, representing 10 different agencies, who died as a direct result of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
