    Thousands of mourners, including Gov. Deval Patrick, attended the private funeral Mass at St. Peter Church to honor Maloney. The 17-year veteran was married with two teenage sons.
    Massachusetts State Police say at least 2,000 police officers from the state and beyond were at Maloney's funeral.
    The procession, lead by officers carrying Maloney's helmet beneath a huge American flag, went down Court Street to St. Peter's Church. Then, to the sound of bagpipes, the 44-year-old's casket was carried in for the service.
    He was buried at Vine Hill Cemetery in Plymouth.
    Hundreds gathered in Plymouth for his wake Monday at Memorial Hall. Citizens and first responders from around the region joined in supporting Maloney's family and friends.

    Uniformed officers marched in Maloney's honor, led by police bagpipers, while others covered for their Plymouth colleagues. Police Chief Michael Botieri said they are grateful for the support.

    I have video of the procession, but it is in wrong format to upload. I do have a couple of photos I can share for those who couldn't attend. 10177881_10152355575379669_1985974520349249853_n.jpg 1978902_10152345321739704_8601438785069574856_n.jpg 1979593_10152356084479669_1144375333032014732_n.jpg
