‘A cop’s cop:’ Decorated NYPD chief dies from 9/11 illness
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — William Allee was a cop’s cop. The decorated officer slept with his shield under his pillow when he rose through the ranks and became chief of detectives. But that didn’t mean he was running things from a cushy office. He was instead on the streets helping his cops, and above all, his beloved city. The Willowbrook native sifted through the wreckage at the Fresh Kills landfill after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and fought against drugs, gangs and prostitution in the Lower East Side. “It was always in his heart,” said his daughter, Diana Allee-Fulton. Allee, 76, died last month from a 9/11-related illness at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. He is the highest-ranking uniform cop to die of a Sept. 11 illness, his family said.
