“They, and each of you, personify what is best about the city, this country and our ideals,” the 34th Precinct wrote on Facebook. “As we observe this 19th anniversary of the tragic events of September 11th, 2001, take pride in knowing that history will remember that the New York City Police Department demonstrated the highest principles of service and humanity in our response that day. May events never require us to do so again.”
