As the hardest working frontline police supervisors in the world, NYPD sergeants are guided by an unrivaled sense of justice, determination, courage, nobility, selflessness and commitment to duty. They work hard to help others while advancing the ideals of New York City, which is universally regarded as the Capitol of the World.

Becoming an NYPD sergeant requires a great deal of preparation. Newly promoted sergeants must have a minimum of 5 years of police service. Besides requiring a wealth of knowledge, they must display immense leadership qualities at all times.

Young police officers remember their first sergeants the way military recruits remember their first drill instructors. In order to lead by example it is crucial that NYPD sergeants possess the essential qualities of integrity, leadership, experience, objectivity, confidence, physical conditioning, motivation, promptness and consistency.
