Timothy Motto, Tim always wanted to know what he could do to help a fellow officer. He provided support whenever a brave family member of blue was lost.
Fully aware of the danger, Tim went to ground zero without hesitation. In doing so, he was taken too early from us.

The following spoke Council Member Vikie Paladino, who sponsored the street naming bill in the council, she went on to say she, she stands with NYPD Officer Timothy Motto and all the NYPD Officers.
