Liverpool’s main street was blue on Monday as NSW Police turned out in force to farewell a young constable who died following a tragic car accident in Sydney’s south.
Family, friends and members of the NSW Police Force gathered at All Saints Catholic Church in Liverpool on Monday morning for the funeral of 29 year-old Const. Timothy Proctor.
The funeral was presided over by Liverpool assistant priest Fr Tom Stevens, who also delivered the homily.
Const. Proctor was given full Police Force honours with the entire NSW Police command forming a guard of honour down George Street, Liverpool’s main thoroughfare, as his casket left the church.
Marching police officers and members of Const. Proctor’s family escorted the hearse as it processed down George Street, accompanied by mounted police, VIP motorcycles and a marching band.
Const. Proctor had been critically injured in a four-car crash at Lucas Heights on 31 January and died in hospital on 3 February.
NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller, who visited Const. Proctor while he was in hospital, had described him as being “absolutely loved” by his colleagues.
