New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly will host a plaque dedication to Police Officers Ramon Suarez and Mark Ellis, who died during the attacks on the World Trade Center, at a ceremony on Thursday, October 24, at 3 p.m. The dedication will take place at Union Square in Manhattan.

Police Officers Suarez and Ellis were partners assigned to Transit District 4. Both were off-duty when the planes struck the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. However, upon learning of the attack, they commandeered a cab and raced downtown to help people escape the buildings. They went missing when the towers collapsed, and their remains were later identified during the recovery effort. Officer Ray Suarez was 45; Officer Mark Ellis was 21.

Following the speeches by Mayor Bloomberg and Commissioner Kelly, Carmen Suarez, Ray's wife, will deliver remarks.
