(09/08/10) BROOKLYN - Three court officers who ran into the Twin Towers to help on 9/11 were memorialized by the Brooklyn Supreme Court.

Sgt. Thomas Jurygens, Capt. Harry Thompson and Sergeant Mitchel Wallace fell with many others on 9/11. The court was filled with faces to honor them today.

Jewel Williams, the chief of the Department of New York Courts, says the court system tries to instill new officers with the same values as the three fallen men.

Williams says each year a leadership award is given in Capt. Thompson's name.
