A ceremony held Saturday honored service workers who died in the September 11th terror attacks.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly presided over the ceremony in SoHo.

SEIU 32BJ lost 24 members when the twin towers fell.

Merit awards were also handed out to private security officers who have excelled in the line of duty.

"You are in a better position than most to spot the indicators of terrorism. We depend on you. We depend on you to stay engaged,” said Kelly.

“I just want people to know that when they do see a security officer, male or female, their job is very hard, dealing with the public and what have you. Just give them the credit for what they're doing," said award recipient Edward Doctor.

Since the attacks, union representatives say they have improved training and increased health benefits and pay for workers.
