New York City Mayor-elect Eric Adams has tapped Keechant Sewell, the chief of detectives in the Nassau County Police Department, as his NYPD commissioner, making her the first woman to lead the nation’s largest police force.

In a statement sent by Adams’ spokesperson on Tuesday night, the mayor-elect described Sewell as a “proven crime fighter with the experience and emotional intelligence to deliver both the safety New Yorkers need and the justice they deserve.”

Sewell, a native of Queens, has served in the Nassau County police force for 23 years, with stints in the Narcotics Vice Squad and as a hostage negotiator, before her promotion to chief of detectives last year.
