Politicians, well-known figures and family, filled Saint Patrick’s Cathedral Tuesday afternoon at the funeral of John Timoney — who was known as a cop’s cop and who once stood among the top of the NYPD’s brass before leaving the Big Apple to lead police departments in Philadelphia and Miami.
“John Timoney was one of a kind. He was also the last of his kind. How fortunate for us. How fortunate for this great city,” NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said at the start of the rites as hundreds of people filled the grand cathedral’s pews in Manhattan.
Timoney, 68, joined the NYPD in the 1960 and served as a cops in the tough 44th Precinct in the Bronx, Bratton pointed out.
