NextImg:NYC Mayor Adams names Eddie Caban to take over as NYPD’s top cop

Tipping his hat to outgoing Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell, Mayor Adams on Saturday officially announced that First Deputy Commissioner Eddie Caban would temporarily take charge of the nation’s largest police department.

“Until we name a permanent replacement, Eddie Caban has taken the helm as acting police commissioner,” Mayor Adams said in an afternoon news release.

“Commissioner Caban is a consummate professional with over three decades of service in the NYPD. I know the hard-working men and women of our city’s police department have a strong leader in place until a more formal announcement is made in the coming weeks.” 

Sewell walked into Mayor Adams’s office in City Hall and resigned in a surprise move on June 12 — a day after The Post reported that she was unhappy because she didn’t have full power as the city’s top cop.

“Commissioner Sewell not only led the NYPD with distinction and honor every day, but she inspired millions of young girls and boys in her role,” Adams wrote. “… today, we are safer than we were on January 1, 2022, with most major crimes down, and that is thanks, in large part, to Commissioner Sewell taking a leading role in this administration’s tireless work to make New York City safer. All New Yorkers owe her a debt of gratitude, and we wish her the best as she embarks on the next chapter.”

This is a developing story.
