The plan comes at a pivotal time for the department as the Police Commissioner and newly installed leadership team reflect on the significant accomplishments of 2022 and position themselves for continued success. The plan, as Commissioner Sewell said, invites all NYPD employees to “step forward” with her.

  • Transforming New York City policing through continuous improvement and innovation.
  • Commitment from our community partners to improve relationships with all members of the public.
  • Promote public safety and respect through the development of neighborhood policing.

Within the plan, each of the four goals is accompanied by focused goals to achieve them and initiatives to provide actionable actions to be taken by the department.

“We need to keep our hearts and minds open to truly embrace this Step Forward philosophy because, at its core, it requires us to never stop innovating,” said Police Commissioner Sewell. “We can never accept what we have as final and must always strive to exceed expectations. This is what the NYPD was built for and through its professionalism, experience and willingness to rise to any challenge, I know this philosophy will be ingrained in the culture of our amazing organization.”

Susan Birnbaum, the president and CEO of the Police Foundation, an independent nonprofit, said the police commissioner’s address was a reminder of the decades-long partnership the NYPD and the Foundation have to ensure a safe city.
