The Philadelphia Police department is mourning the death of a man who helped re-shape the department more than 20 years ago.

Former police commissioner Kevin Tucker died Tuesday morning in Marlton, New Jersey after a long illness.

Tucker took over the police department in 1986 following the "Move " bombing that left eleven people dead.

Tucker is credited with fixing many of the problems that plagued the department.

He resigned in 1988.

Kevin Tucker was 71 years old.
