The New York Police Department inducted its first female turbaned Sikh auxiliary police officer. Her induction aims to motivate others to join law enforcement and help create a better understanding of Sikhism.
Gursoach Kaur will join the NYPD as an Auxiliary Police Officer (APO) after graduating last week from the New York City Police Academy.
“We are proud to welcome first Sikh turbaned female Auxiliary Police Officer in the New York Police Department. APO Gursoach Kaur and other Auxiliary Police Officers graduated from the academy. We are proud of you. Stay safe. #sikhsinlawenforcement,” the Sikh Officers Association tweeted.
