12 NYPD officers given posthumous honor
A dozen New York City police officers were honored today during a dedication ceremony to have their names inscribed on the Police Memorial Wall in lower Manhattan.
The 12 officers join hundreds of others on the wall in Battery Park. One of the officers, Omar Edwards, died after being shot by fellow officers. The other 11 honored officers worked at Ground Zero and have since died.
"Millions of visitors will come to this sacred precinct to pay their respects and give thanks for the courage and sacrifice of those whose names are inscribed here," says NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly.
