( – On Tuesday, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney announced that the city’s Police Commissioner, Danielle Outlaw, is going to be leaving her position and moving to a new job at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

In her statement, she pointed out that Outlaw has been working in her position for three and a half years and that she has faced many of the city’s crises. She proceeded to note that the police commissioner needed to be praised for her commitment to reforming the department and addressing the gender discrimination and racism that had been present in the department previously. Finally, she wished Outlaw success in her newest position and thanked her for the dedication she has shown over the years to Philadelphia residents.

In February 2020, Outlaw became the first Philadelphia Police Department commissioner to be a black female. She is going to continue serving in her position until Sept. 22, at which point she is going to become the Deputy Chief Security Officer at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. In her new position, she is going to have oversight over tunnels, bridges, airports, and transportation infrastructure in New York City.

Outlaw was also quoted as expressing gratitude for the opportunity to serve during Keeney’s administration and to have worked with the Philadelphia Police Department. She also praised her team for their “hard work, resilience, and professionalism” and how tirelessly they have worked for their community even when faced with adversity.
