9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Press Conference

Paul Nunziato, president of the Port Authority Police Benevolent Association, a police officer with more than 30 years experience and a September 11, 2001 first responder, offers his humble and emotional words in the United States Capitol after the U.S. Senate passed the continuation bill for the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund on Tuesday, July 23, 2019.

Police Officer Nunziato represents approximately 2,000 members of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department (PAPD) who hold the rank of police officer. On September 11, 2001, the PAPD suffered the greatest number of line-of-duty deaths in a single incident, 37 Port Authority police officers killed at the World Trade Center, in the history of American law enforcement. The PAPD continues to suffer with post 9/11 related line-of-duty deaths and illnesses.
