Uptown’s Ydanis Rodriguez Statement On Recent Promotions At The NYPD

Today Tuesday, January 9, 2018, Council Member Ydanis Rodriguez issued a statement on the NYPD’s announcement on recent promotions within its leadership:

Support Harlem World today. Thank you.
“NYPD Commissioner James P. O’Neill’s announcement of various promotions within the Department are encouraging. The changes in policing over the past few years have shown that having a police force that better reflects the population leads to safer city. While leadership at the NYPD does not yet proportionally represent the make-up of the city or the rank-and-file, the promotion of talented women and men of color, including Deputy Chief Nilda Irizarry Hofmann, Inspector Fausto Pichardo and Executive Director Maria Otero, sets the department on a good path to a truly diverse force and builds towards a more robust pipeline.”
