Excerpts

Excerpts

A New York police officer was one of the first to report the tragic events of September 11, 2001. Rushing to the scene, officers were instrumental in saving thousands of lives, while sadly losing members of their own ranks. Law enforcement officials also played key roles in determining that the events were, in fact, terrorist attacks by Al-Qaeda, a terrorist network headed by Osama bin Laden. Learn more about the heroic efforts of law enforcement on September 11th and throughout our country's history.
