Commanding officer of the NYPD’s Public Information Office Kim Royster is making history with a promotion.

The NYPD Chief Deputy is reportedly being transferred to the department’s personnel division where she will be over recruitment where she will be in charge of brining new officers into the NYPD.

She plans to increase diversity in the department. The NYPD has been under scrutiny for its low number of Black and Latinos. The latest class to graduate from the police academy was one of the most diverse ever.

Royster is a 30-year veteran of the NYPD. Her promotion makes her the highest ranking Black woman in the department ever.
