Honorees representing current and former police, public safety and government organizations from a dozen countries are among the 2016 International Police and Public Safety 9/11 Medal recipients.

The honorees will gather in San Diego, Calif. on Oct. 14, 2016, the evening prior to the opening session of the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference, to accept awards in recognition of their commitment to fighting terrorism and transnational crime.
Presented by INTERPORTPOLICE – Morrone 9/11 Center for Counterterrorism and Public Safety, the 9/11 Award Committee recognizes those outstanding individuals for bravery, extraordinary achievement, and distinguished leadership in the fight against international terrorism.
On Sept. 11, 2001, Fred V. Morrone, the superintendent of police and public safety for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the highest-ranking official and police officer to die that day, perished along with 36 of his fellow officers. In addition to the Port Authority police officers, 23 New York City police officers gave their lives in what became the deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil.

These officers were the inaugural recipients of the 9/11 International Police Medal with Valor, presented in New York City in 2012. Morrone, at the time of his death, was also the incoming president of the Board of the INTERPORTPOLICE. His focus was terrorism and global collaboration.
“The officers we honor this year are following in the footsteps of inaugural 9/11 Award recipients,” said Jay Grant, secretary general, INTERPORTPOLICE. “The 9/11 Award program was established to recognize officers around the world who have distinguished themselves in the ongoing fight against terrorism.”
“Nominees in nine categories are selected by their peers as being among the world’s best law enforcement and public safety officials,” said Joseph “Joe” Lawless IPM, security director, Massport Authority Boston and 9/11 Award chair. “We honor these law enforcement officers and public safety officials who are fighting terrorism and protecting the transportation security networks globally. With pride and gratitude, we announce the 2016 9/11 Medal
honorees.
