The September 11 attacks (also referred to as September 11, September 11th, or 9/11) were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks launched by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda upon the United States in New York City and the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area on Tuesday, September 11, 2001.

Four passenger airliners were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists so they could be flown into buildings in suicide attacks. Two of those planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were crashed into the North and South towers, respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in New York City. Within two hours, both towers collapsed with debris and the resulting fires causing partial or complete collapse of all other buildings in the WTC complex, as well as major damage to ten other large surrounding structures. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, was crashed into the Pentagon (the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense), leading to a partial collapse in its western side. The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, was targeted at Washington, D.C., but crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after its passengers tried to overcome the hijackers. In total, almost 3,000 people died in the attacks, including the 227 civilians and 19 hijackers aboard the four planes. It also was the deadliest incident for firefighters in the history of the United States.

Law enforcement in the United States is one of three major components of the criminal justice system of the United States, along with courts and corrections. Although each component operates semi-independently, the three collectively form a chain leading from investigation of suspected criminal activity to administration of criminal punishment. Also, courts are vested with the power to make legal determinations regarding the conduct of the other two components.

Law enforcement operates primarily through governmental police agencies. The law-enforcement purposes of these agencies are the investigation of suspected criminal activity, referral of the results of investigations to the courts, and the temporary detention of suspected criminals pending judicial action. Law enforcement agencies, to varying degrees at different levels of government and in different agencies, are also commonly charged with the responsibilities of deterring criminal activity and preventing the successful commission of crimes in progress. Other duties may include the service and enforcement of warrants, writs, and other orders of the courts.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) is a bi-state port district authority, established in 1921 (as the Port of New York Authority) through an interstate compact, that oversees much of the regional transportation infrastructure, including bridges, tunnels, airports, and seaports, within the Port of New York and New Jersey. This 1,500 square mile (3,900 kmĀ²) district is the region generally within 25 miles (40 km) of the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor. The Port Authority is headquartered at 225 Park Avenue South in Manhattan.

Law enforcement in New York State is the responsibility of a very large number of law enforcement agencies. Law enforcement is conducted by police departments, fire departments, sections of other government departments, educational institutions, private companies and charities at federal, state, county, city, town and occasionally village levels. There are two types of law enforcement agents: "police officers" and "peace officers".

The following are defined as "police officers" by subdivision thirty-four of section 1.20 of the criminal procedure law. Where an entry is in bold, click the "show" link to the far right to see the full entry. Notes in italics are not part of the law.

NY, US-NY

New York is a state in the Northeastern region of the United States. New York is the 27th-most extensive, the third-most populous, and the seventh-most densely populated of the 50 United States. New York is bordered by New Jersey and Pennsylvania to the south, and by Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont to the east. The state has a maritime border with Rhode Island east of Long Island, as well as an international border with the Canadian provinces of Ontario to the west and north, and Quebec to the north. The state of New York is often referred to as New York State, so as to distinguish it from New York City.

The New York City Police Department (NYPD or NYCPD), officially the City of New York Police Department, was established in 1845, and is the largest municipal police force in the United States, having primary responsibilities in law enforcement and investigation within the five boroughs of New York City. The NYPD is one of the oldest police departments established in the United States; tracing its roots back to the first Dutch eight man night watch in 1625, when New York City was New Amsterdam.

Of the 2,977 people killed in the September 11 attacks, 441 were emergency workers in New York City who responded to the World Trade Center. This included:

This article lists those emergency workers from the three main emergency services, the FDNY, PAPD and NYPD, who died whilst fulfilling their duties at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

Communication problems and successes played an important role in the September 11, 2001 attacks and their aftermath.

The organizers of the September 11, 2001 attacks apparently planned and coordinated their mission in face to face meetings and used little or no electronic communication. This "radio silence" made their plan more difficult to detect.

In journalism, a human interest story is a feature story that discusses a person or people in an emotional way. It presents people and their problems, concerns, or achievements in a way that brings about interest, sympathy or motivation in the reader or viewer.

Human interest stories may be "the story behind the story" about an event, organization, or otherwise faceless historical happening, such as about the life of an individual soldier during wartime, an interview with a survivor of a natural disaster, a random act of kindness or profile of someone known for a career achievement.

The North Tower (also known as Tower 1, Building One or 1 WTC) was one of the twin towers of the original World Trade Center in New York City. It was completed in 1972, standing at a height of 417 metres (1,368 ft), and was the tallest building in the world until being surpassed by Chicago's Sears Tower in 1973. It was distinguishable from its twin, the South Tower, by the 110-metre (360 ft) telecommunications antenna on its roof. Including the antenna, the building stood at a total height of 527 metres (1,729 ft). The building's address was 1 World Trade Center, with the WTC complex having its own ZIP code of 10048.

The North Tower and its twin were both destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001; the North Tower was the first of the towers to be struck by a hijacked aircraft, at 8:46 a.m EDT, and it collapsed, at 10:28 a.m. Of the approximately 3,000 people killed in the attacks, over 1,300 were in or above the North Tower impact zone. The North Tower was replaced by the present One World Trade Center tower, which will open in 2014 as the lead building of the redeveloped World Trade Center site.

The South Tower (also known as Tower 2, Building Two or 2 WTC) of the World Trade Center in New York City, New York, was completed and opened in 1973 at a height of 415 meters (1,362 ft) to the roof, distinguishable from the North Tower by its outdoor observation deck and the absence of a television antenna.

The address of this building was 2 World Trade Center with the WTC complex having its own ZIP code of 10048. It was destroyed along with the North Tower (1 World Trade Center) in the September 11 attacks. The South Tower was the second tower to be struck at 9:03 AM and the first tower to collapse at 9:59 AM.
