WASHINGTON, D.C. (NLEOMF) --- The latest report indicates that 65 law enforcement officers are still missing in New York City as a result of the September 11 terrorist attack. They include 37 officers from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department, 23 officers from the New York City Police Department, three officers from the New York Office of Court Administration, one FBI special agent, and one Secret Service master special officer.
This is by far the single greatest tragedy in law enforcement history. Prior to September 11, the deadliest incident in policing occurred on November 24, 1917, when nine Milwaukee (WI) police officers were killed in a bomb blast at their police stationhouse.
