Highest-Ranking Yarmulka-Wearing NYPD Officer Promoted to Inspector

(Theyeshivaworld) NYPD Deputy Inspector Richie Taylor is being promoted to full inspector in an NYPD ceremony next week. Last year, Taylor made history upon his promotion to deputy inspector as the highest-ranking yarmulka-wearing officer in NYPD history.

Taylor, who lives in Flatbush, is currently the commanding officer of Community Affairs. He was previously the commanding officer of the Manhattan South Investigations Unit.

At the age of 15 he started as a police explorer in the 61st Precinct. In 2005 he was sworn in as a police officer. He was promoted to sergeant in 2010, lieutenant in 2014, captain in 2016 and deputy inspector in 2020.

Taylor has been recognized and honored by the NYPD on numerous occasions and was the recipient of the September 2016, 61st Precinct Cop of the Month Award for effecting a firearm arrest while solo.

Before becoming a police officer, he was a New York State Emergency Medical Technical and a member of Hatzalah. He responded to the World Trade Center on 9/11, arriving before the towers collapsed.
