MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A number of ceremonies were held across Miami-Dade on Wednesday to mark the 12th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the United States Pentagon.

At Tropical Park on Bird Road, Miami-Dade Police and Fire Rescue hosted a “We Will Never Forget” remembrance ceremony for police officers and firefighters killed in the attacks.  Of the more than 3,000 people who died, nearly 350 were New York City police officers and firefighters who sacrificed their lives when the World Trade Center Towers collapsed around them.

Guest speakers at the event included Mayor Carlos Gimenez, Miami-Dade Police Director J.D. Patterson and Fire Chief Dave Downy.
