I met John Timoney several times while he was Philadelphia's top cop.  I witnessed Timoney's hands on management style while covering the street riots during the Republican National Convention in Philadelphia in 2000.

I later interviewed John Timoney for Counterterrorism magazine. You can read the interview via the below link:
