9/11 Memorial paying security firm $1M a month to patrol site

The National 9/11 Memorial and Museum pays one million dollars a month for unarmed guards to patrol the Memorial Plaza, though the NYPD and PAPD already provide protection, reports Susan Edelman for the NY Post.

The organization has a 36-month contract with SOS Security that costs $36.2 million.

Salaries for National 9/11 Memorial and Museum have long been criticized for being too high. President and CEO Alice Greenwald was paid $564,633 last year.

The foundation that runs the Memorial reported $108.7 million in expenses last year, while earning $87.1 million.
