This week, Police Commissioner James O’Neill will retire from the NYPD. He sat down with NY1 Criminal Justice Reporter Dean Meminger to discuss a wide range of issues, including former Mayor Bloomberg’s recent apology for stop-and-frisk.
This is a very good interview from the man who recently led the NYPD. He is a good model of being a police leader and worth emulating.

I served over 20 years as the chief of police in Madison (WI), four years as chief of the Burnsville (MN) Police Department, and before that as a police officer in Edina (MN) and the City of Minneapolis. I hold graduate degrees from the University of Minnesota and Edgewood College in Madison. I have written many articles over my years as a police leader. After retiring from the police department, I answered a call to ministry, attended seminary, and was ordained as a priest in the Episcopal Church. After 25 years leading two Episcopal Churches in Portage and North Lake, Wisconsin, I now serve as Associate Pastor in a growing, dynamic, and Spirit-filled Lutheran congregation in nearby Mazomanie.
