Nasir Saleem, a Pakistani-American police officer, has been picked to head the New York Police Department’s volunteer force. The 30-year veteran of New York Police dedicated this big achievement to his homeland, Pakistan.

Saleem has now become the first Pakistani and Muslim to be appointed as the Auxiliary Deputy Chief of the nearly 5,000-strong force. The force works in the city’s neighborhoods as ‘eyes and ears’ of the regular police force.

“I dedicate my new title to Pakistan,” Saleem told reporters after taking the oath of office as the Auxiliary Deputy Chief on Tuesday. He added it was a great honor that rendered him speechless.

The job of the Auxiliary Police Officers is to observe and report conditions that require the services of regular police assisting in non-hazardous and non-enforcement duties. Nasir Saleem was welcomed to his new post at a simple ceremony. The ceremony was attended by senior police officials and members of the Pakistani community.
