The Year of Global 9/11 Remembrance 2001 - 2021

Under Construction, Come Back Soon

We honor our fallen colleagues and all those who continue the fight against terrorism and other serious crime within our global communities.  We celebrate those officers and officials from around the world who make a difference each and every day. Often unknown to the public, these officers and officials provide a safe community, Nation, and the world in their fight against organized and lone act terrorism.  

We, therefore, recognize those who are amongst the most distinguished in the world, making it a safer place and honor their ​efforts.

Fred V. Morrone was out of harm's way when terrorists attacked the World Trade Center on Sept. 11. The superintendent of police for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey was not in his office on the first floor of the Twin Towers that morning. Instead, he was working in an office in Jersey City. But when the first airplane crashed into a tower, he jumped into a car and sped to the other side of the Hudson River. There, he plunged into the job of helping to evacuate the buildings. Friends and family members say Mr. Morrone was last seen near the 45th floor of One World Trade Center, the first building struck. Employees of the authority were coming down the stairs, escaping offices on the 66th and 67th floors. When they passed Mr. Morrone, he was still heading up. No one who knew him during his long and distinguished career in law enforcement was surprised by that news.
