NYPD Give 'Final Salute' to Slain Police Officer Wilbert Mora

Rows of uniformed police officers stood silently along Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue during the funeral procession for Officer Wilbert Mora, who was eulogized at St Patrick’s Cathedral on Wednesday morning, February 2.

The service included words from New York City Mayor Eric Adams, NYPD Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell, NYPD PBA President Patrick J Lynch, and family members of the 27-year-old officer, who was killed in Harlem last month while responding to a domestic disturbance incident.

Video taken from outside the cathedral shows officers giving a final salute.

Commissioner Sewell said Mora was posthumously promoted to Detective First Grade.
