New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg And Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly To Host Plaque Dedication For Police Officer Glen Pettit Who Lost His Life At The World Trade Center On Monday, November 11

New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly will host a plaque dedication for Police Officer Glen Pettit, who died during the attacks on the World Trade Center, at a ceremony on Monday, November 11, at 1 p.m. The dedication will take place at the Police Academy at 235 East 20th Street in Manhattan.

Police Officer Pettit joined the Department in 1997, and served in the 10th Precinct before joining the Video Unit at the Police Academy in 2000. Pettit, who had been a volunteer firefighter since he was 16, was an ardent photographer and videographer. He freelanced for many media outlets, including The New York Times, New York Newsday, and News Channel 12 cable TV in Long Island.

When the planes struck the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, Pettit joined the front line of the rescue effort and helped hundreds of people escape the buildings. He went missing when the towers collapsed, and his remains were later identified during the recovery effort. Officer Glen Pettit was 30.
