The latest report indicates that 65 law enforcement
officers are still missing in New York City as a result of the Sept. 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
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 (Wisc.) police officers were killed
in a bomb blast at their police stationhouse.
