Daughter of NYPD officer killed on 9/11 joins the force

A woman from Massapequa is following in her father's footsteps and has joined the New York City Police Department.



Brittney Roy, 22, was sworn into the NYPD alongside 473 other recruits on Thursday.



Roy's father, Sgt. Timothy Roy, rushed into the south tower on 9/11 before it collapsed. Roy's body was found months later.



Brittney was 7 years old when her father passed away and says she always dreamed of being a police officer.
