New York -  The New York Police Department has marked the upcoming 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks with a parade to honor its 23 officers who died at the World Trade Center.

Friday’s parade through lower Manhattan also commemorated 99 officers who died of illnesses after participating in the rescue and recovery operation. Thirty-seven members of a port agency’s police department also died in the attack.

Police departments from around the United States and Canada joined the procession.

Bagpipers led marchers around the southern tip of Manhattan, ending near a memorial wall engraved with the names of the fallen NYPD officers.
