New York police commissioner to step down from 'a job that consumes you'New York Police Department Commissioner James O’Neill will step down to take a new job in the private sector, he said on Monday, about three months after his decision to fire an officer accused of using a banned chokehold that caused the death of a black man. Dermot Shea, currently the NYPD’s chief of detectives, will replace O’Neill. “This is a job that consumes you,” O’Neill said at a news conference attended by Shea and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
