Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly announced today the appointment of Philip Banks III as the NYPD’s new Chief of Department. The 26-year veteran of the force and its current Chief of Community Affairs will be officially installed as the Department’s highest ranking uniformed officer in promotion ceremonies at Police Headquarters.
“Phil Banks has proven himself time and again to be as outstanding a field commander, adept in managing police personnel and operations, as he has a consummate builder of community relations whose robust School Safety and Juvenile Justice Divisions, as well as New-Immigrant Outreach and Crime Prevention programs, flourished under his command.” Commissioner Kelly said.
Chief Banks, 50, joined the New York City Police Department in July 1986, and began his career on patrol in the 81st Precinct. He was promoted to Sergeant in March 1994; Lieutenant in May 1997; Captain in September 1999; Deputy Inspector in June 2001; Inspector in December 2003; Deputy Chief in December 2006; and Assistant Chief in June 2009.
