VIDEO: Thousands Attend Funeral for Slain NYPD Officer

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton promoted slain New York City Police Officer Randolph Holder to detective Wednesday, as family, friends and fellow law enforcement officers said their final goodbyes.

The funeral for Officer Holder was held Wednesday afternoon at the Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York in Jamaica, Queens.

Holder’s body will later be sent to his native Guyana for burial. About a dozen NYPD officers will represent the department at Holder’s burial, CBS2’s Tony Aiello reported.

At the funeral, police Commissioner Bill Bratton emphasized that Holder devoted his life to keeping people safe.

More than 10,000 officers from all over the nation lined the streets outside the Cathedral for a final salute to Officer Holder.
