“On behalf of the Borough of the Bronx, I want to thank Police Commissioner Keechant L. Sewell for an extraordinary 18 months of service at the helm of our nation’s largest police force. A history maker as the first African American woman NYPD Commissioner with over 20 years of law enforcement experience, Commissioner Sewell began her tenure during one of the most challenging chapters in our city`s history and demonstrated exemplary leadership and commitment to keeping New Yorkers safe. From remarkable drops in overall crime to improving police and community relations, we are forever grateful for Commissioner Sewell`s service to our city. As she prepares for her next chapter, we wish her and her family the best during this time of transition.”
