Deputy Inspector Adeel Rana

Adeel Rana has made history, by becoming the first Pakistani-American deputy inspector of the New York Police Department. Rana has been promoted from the post of precinct commanding officer.

“What a great moment to hear cheers of coworkers, friends, family & community members when my name was called for promotion to Deputy Inspector. A historical moment indeed
This promotion making me the First #Pakistani #American to achieve this rank in #NYPD History!,” wrote Rana on his Facebook page and a Tweet, announcing his historic promotion.



Last year, Rana made history by becoming the first Muslim police officer to be appointed as a local precinct commander in the New York Police Department.

Rana is hugely popular and well-respected in the New York-based Pakistani-American community. He has inspired a new generation of Pakistani-American youth which is increasingly joining the city’s police force.
