40 Names Added To New York Police Memorial Wall

Members of the NYPD joined fellow officers from the New York area and beyond to honor 40 fallen police officers as their names were added to the New York Police Memorial Wall Tuesday in Albany.

Thirty-eight of the officers died from illnesses associated with their search and recovery work after the 9/11 attacks at the World Trade Center. Two officers died in the line of duty last year. Sergeant Paul J. Tuozzolo of the NYPD was shot and killed in the line of duty in the Bronx and New York State Trooper Timothy Pratt was killed in the line of duty after being struck by a vehicle while he was assisting a tractor-trailer driver stopped on the side of the road near Saratoga.

The officers’ names were added to the New York Police Officers Memorial Wall during the annual ceremony that is attended by families of the fallen officers, community, and elected officials..

“Each day, law enforcement officers selflessly put their lives on the line to protect the public,” Governor Andrew Cuomo said in a statement.

“Today, we honor the enduring legacy of those dedicated police officers who gave their lives to keep our communities safe and join in thanking their families for their bravery and service.”
