Officer Driscoll,
On today, the 20th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of New York City and our Country as well. Not just as a Police Officer but also when you served with the USN. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I cannot say enough or offer enough tears or emotions for the numerous, numerous amazing men and women who gave so selflessly and heroically that day and for still many, the numerous days that followed over the numerous years to come. On this 19th anniversary of one of the deadliest days for American law enforcement I'd like to say to you all thank you, God Bless you and rest in peace always knowing that your service and sacrifice will never, ever be forgotten by your law enforcement brethren.

Stephen I think of you often. You are not forgotten you will be happy to know the FOP lodge 704 in your name has been going strong since 911 you were a good man and a better brother-in-law . I wish you were around to have more time together and to be able to bounce life’s issues off of you. You were always a good voice of reason. Secure those gates up in heaven

I was in the Academy with Steve in 1992 (I was in 92-28 with his friend Jeff Miller). I wasn't close to Steve, but I remember him as a good man, fun, full of life. I think of him often sinse 9/11 especially. Could have been me. He made a difference. He did! We should all be that fortunate. But God help and save his family. Our families. It is difficult for the ones left behind.

I purchased a flag today at a 9/11 memorial service. It had your name, age and where you gave the ultimate sacrifice. I looked you up on google because I wanted to know more. Thank you for your service, Sir. God bless you and your family. God bless your son, Barry, who joined law enforcement to protect and serve also.

To the Driscoll Family,

Years have gone by and on this 9-11 day as well as many in the past years,I reflect on the time I spent with Steve during my years with the Street Crime Unit. He was an excellent individual and a true hero. I have never forgotten that day nor will I ever forget Stephen as well as Firefighter Teddy White.My thoughts and prayers go out to your family as well as All Families that were affected that day.

Steve we wont ever forget.
We met when we served on the board of the New York Shields. You were an inspiration and and example to many. We never forgot those families and we will never forget yours.
The week that we got to serve together during my rotation through the " A " team was one of the best weeks of my career.
11 years ago, that was a terrible day for so many, and we will never know how many you were able to save because you had no quit in you, and it was always about others.
You were taken from us way too soon, but your memory and heart for others will live on forever. We love you bro.
Thank you Steve. Rest well.

10 years ago the department I worked for ordered memorial bracelets. I received one with your name on it. In the last couple of days I been thinking about what has happened sent you left us. You left a son behind,my son was an infant and is now 10 years old. I now have 2 other children and 2 stepchildren. What a tragedy that you couldn't be here to watch him grow up. Bin Laden has been taken care of and that is supposed to be a bit of comfort for everyone. I pray for your family that they remember all the good times they had with you instead of your ultimate sacrifice.
Rest in peace dear brother. We'll continue to take care of things down here.
I'm only a dispatcher...but losing an officer is like losing a brother to me also.
God Bless your family and brothers at NYPD.

I remember like everyone else the 1st day of high school was a very SCARY day.And the first day the 1st person I met was you.

We were such close freinds and we did everything together.
30 years later I still remember your humor.

And I thank you for the SACRIFICE you gave.
