Bernard Kerik - Biography

As New York City’s 40th Police Commissioner, Bernard Kerik was on the scene just minutes after the first hijacked airliner slammed into Tower One of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. He worked tirelessly with Mayor Rudy Giuliani to oversee the NYPD’s response, rescue, recovery, and the investigative efforts of the most substantial terror attack in world history. He has spent ten of his thirty-five year career working in the Middle East, and has been recognized in more than 100 awards for meritorious and heroic service, including a presidential commendation for heroism by President Ronald Reagan, two Distinguished Service Awards from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, The Ellis Island Medal of Honor, and an appointment as Honorary Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
