Earlier this month, Port Authority Police Officers Marcus Credle and Leland Rogan saved the life of an 86-year-old man by reviving him with a defibrillator at the Newport PATH station in Jersey City
Life renewed itself in the World Trade Center PATH station as Port Authority Police Officer Brian McGraw holds baby girl Asenat Abdrabo whom he helped deliver when her mother went into labor at the PATH station. The event was immediately hailed as the first birth at the WTC site since 9/11
The Port Authority Police’s George Washington Bridge Command was honored during a ceremony in Fort Lee for saving lives at the span this year. From left: PAPD Lt.

Some of the bravest and best people in the world wear the Port Authority uniform and badge, delivering babies, defibrillating ailing hearts, pulling people from car wrecks and preventing people from taking their lives. Yet for every story of heroism that we read or watch on television, there are countless unsung heroes who perform quiet acts of service everyday that don’t draw much attention, but make a big difference in people’s lives. In this photo gallery, Portfolio celebrates the singular acts of service of just a few heroes, but we are saying thank you to all the special men and women who protected this region and placed their lives on the line for us in 2015.
