Dermot shea

New York City Police Commissioner Dermot Shea has filed for retirement, sources confirmed to WNYC/Gothamist, ending a two year run as the NYPD’s top cop that’s been marked by disruption and controversy.
City officials explain the lengthy exemption process and why so many unvaccinated workers have been allowed to stick with weekly testing rather than immediately take the shots.
The police commissioner sits down with our race & justice editor, Jami Floyd, for a wide-ranging interview.
The police commissioner and the mayor blame bail reform and the court system, but experts say the pandemic's effect on society cannot be understated.
At a City Council hearing on Tuesday morning, the NYPD’s leadership declined to publish more comprehensive data on police misconduct investigations.
The release falls far short of the sweeping transparency reforms promised by Mayor Bill de Blasio during last year's protests.
De Blasio will not support an effort by the City Council to remove the police commissioner's final authority over disciplinary matters, breaking with progressive lawmakers.
Among the 11 proposals: stripping the police commissioner's final authority in disciplinary matters and ending qualified immunity for officers who commit misconduct.
One organizer called the comments "ridiculous, insulting, and enraging."
Appearing on NY1 on Monday morning, Police Commissioner Dermot Shea revealed that there was an "investigation active on one member" of the police department who may have joined the pro-Trump riots.
In a tweet, the department said that Shea is "doing well," and is running the police force remotely while working from home.
"If the department had any kind of problem with him or others like him, they would put their careers in a box," one now-retired supervising officer said.
