Rep. Jeffries Statement on the Appointment of Ben Tucker as First Deputy Commissioner of the NYPD

New York, NY– Today, Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (NY-08) released the following statement on the appointment of Ben Tucker as the First Deputy Commissioner of the NYPD:

“The departure of Chief Banks, which seems to have been unnecessarily provoked, left a gaping hole that the police department will struggle to fill. Ben Tucker has an interesting background, but there is no recent evidence of any meaningful community-based experience.  Let’s hope he will be successful, but the jury is out.”
