NYPD Detective Brian Moore was laid to rest yesterday afternoon at St. Charles Cemetery in East Farmingdale.
Moore, who was posthumously promoted to Detective 1st Grade by NYPD Commissioner William Bratton, was shot nearly a week ago and died two days later.
Thousands of police officers lined the streets around Chapey and Sons Funeral home in Bethpage and St. James Roman Catholic Church in Seaford to bid a final farewell to Moore, a five-year veteran of the force.
A sea of blue surrounded the church and inside “Amazing Grace” was played by bagpipers as the flag draped casket was carried outside, passing thousands of officers standing at salute.
All along the funeral route, dozens of fire trucks from all over Long Island were set up with their arched ladders draping American Flags over the roadway.
Moore, who lived in Massapequa, was 25. He was remembered by many as a talented street cop assigned to the NYPD 105 Precinct’s Anti-Crime unit.
