Each year, we gather on the first Saturday in May at NYSFOP Headquarters to honor our fallen. On May 1, 2021, we will be having a closed ceremony to honor our fallen brothers and sisters from 2019 and 2020.
Every year we come together to remember our brothers and sisters who have made the supreme sacrifice. Since 1791, more than 22,000 heroes, across this Nation, have selflessly laid down their lives in the line of duty.
The NYS FOP Memorial Wall has enshrined upon it the names of more than 1,300 members of the NYS law enforcement community so that their names will forever be ingrained in our hearts. The names of 53 Officers from 2019 and 17 Officers from 2020 are being added to our Memorial Wall. Of the 53 Officers being honored from 2019, 2 Officers died from gunfire, 49 Officers died from 9/11 related illnesses, and 2 Officers died many years ago and their names have been recently discovered. Of the 17 Officers being honored from 2020, 10 Officers died from Covid-19 and 7 Officers died from 9/11 related illnesses.
This May the New York State Fraternal Order of Police will be honoring 80 Law Enforcement Officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving the citizens of NYS.
Every year we come together as a profession to remember our brothers and sisters who made the ultimate sacrifice. Since 1791, more than 22,000 heroes, across this Nation, have selflessly laid down their lives in the Line of Duty. The NYS FOP Memorial Wall has enshrined upon it the names of more than 1,200 members of the NYS law enforcement community so that their will forever be engrained in our hearts. In addition to memorializing the 3 Line of Duty losses we experienced this year and 9 Officers who have died in years past throughout the Empire State, we are humbly honored to report to you that we will also remember 68 of our brothers and sisters who have succumbed to 9/11 related illnesses and Terrorism. This year, our solemn ceremony will commemorate their loss and pay special tribute to their service.
