City appoints first NYPD inspector general
There’s a new sheriff in town — so the New York City Police Department better stay in line.
With the appointment of Philip Eure on Friday, the long-discussed inspector general position overseeing the NYPD has become a reality.
“Providing oversight that enriches police work and fosters greater understanding between law enforcement and the public has been the focus of my career. I will ensure that we conduct thorough investigations to effect reform that strengthens this City’s law enforcement efforts and the public’s confidence in its police force,” said Eure, 52.
Eure has worked as the head of the District of Columbia Office of Police Complaints since 2000. He begins his inspector general responsibilities on May 27.
