He was previously Commissioner of the Philadelphia Police Department (1998–2002) and held a variety of positions with the New York Police Department (1967–96), including its Chief of Department (senior sworn/uniformed position) and First Deputy Commissioner (second position). He worked for the Ministry of the Interior of Bahrain as a police consultant. Timoney drew both international praise and criticism for his handling of mass protests.

- "Timoney, who is fifty-eight, has short reddish-gray hair and the ruddy face of an Irish boxer.

- "... John Timoney, the rough, smart red-haired guy with a big Irish mug..."…

- "With his red hair, ruddy complexion and square jaw, Timoney was Hollywood's image of a tough Irish cop."…
