Memorial To The Fallen Police From 9/11 through 2010

I have written several articles law enforcement. A list of links have been provided at bottom of this article for your convenience. This article will, however address different aspects on Law Enforcement.

This is going to be a two part article, the first part is a memorial tom the police and the second is going to be to the military. You may ask why I have left out the firefighters? That is a good question. I believe that they have received a lot of acknowledgment already. While their sacrifices on 9/11 will not ever be forgotten, I want to recognize those that have received less recognition.

The terrorist attacks on September 11th, 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.

In this article I pay tribute to the law enforcement officers starting from the beginning of 2001, mainly because they deserve it and the web pages I am using for reference do not allow me to separate the year 2001 from 9/11 and later, so as not risk leaving anyone off the rolls, I would rather acknowledge all the fallen officers for 2001. As I already stated, they certainly deserve the recognition.
