New York City’s Police Commissioner James O’Neil made a dozen high-level promotions in a shakeup late Monday that also saw several minority officers and women moved into top spots, chiefs being asked to retire and scores of other commanders told they are being transferred.

O’Neill named Chief of Patrol Terence Monahan the new chief of department. Monahan replaces Carlos Gomez, who retired.

Chief Rodney Harrison, an architect of the Neighborhood Coordination Officers program, or NCO, is now chief of patrol. Deputy Chief Nilda Irizarry Hofmann, who runs the Risk Management Bureau, will become chief of community affairs. Hofmann is the first Hispanic woman in the NYPD to be promoted to three-star chief. The promotions take effect next week, the New York Daily News reports.

Transit Chief Joseph Fox, Community Affairs Chief Joanne Jaffe, Personnel Chief Diana Pizzuti and Citywide Operations Chief Thomas Purtell either retired or were asked to put in their papers, NYPD sources said Monday.

The department is also creating an Office of Equity and Inclusion, “to help develop strong women and minority candidates to assume positions of leadership,” O’Neill said.
