In the late morning of Monday, September 11, 2017, board members, staff, and supporters of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund gathered at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial for a 9/11 remembrance ceremony to honor the law enforcement professionals killed that day and those who died from subsequent illnesses related to rescue and recovery work at Ground Zero.

Memorial Fund President and CEO Craig W. Floyd officiated the ceremony and was joined at the podium by Deputy Assistant Secretary Aurelia Skipwith from the U.S. Department of Interior. "As we do each year on the anniversary of 9/11, we come together to honor and remember them all," Floyd said.

Following his brief remarks, the names of 160 fallen officers were read aloud, 72 officers who were killed immediately in the attacks of that day and 88 officers who have died from illnesses relating to their rescue and recovery work at the sites in the months following. The names of the 72 officers are engraved together on the Memorial’s west wall on Line 23 of Panels 9 through 22. During National Police Week in May 2017, 75 officers were added to the Memorial. A wreath was also placed in their honor.

"Not only our 9/11 officers, but today we have 900,000 men and women risking their lives for our safety and our protection," Floyd said. "We should be so honored and proud to have them serving us."

September 11, 2001, remains the deadliest day in U.S. law enforcement history when 72 peace officers were killed in the line of duty during the terrorist attacks that shook the nation. The names of 72 officers killed on 9/11 and the 88 officers who died from subsequent illnesses related to rescue and recovery efforts can be found on the Memorial Fund’s website at www.LawMemorial.org/911RollCall. The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial contains the names of more than 21,000 officers who have died in the line of duty throughout U.S. history.
