Paul is currently assigned to the office of the NYPD’s Chief of Transit, where he is part of a dynamic team that oversees the administration of the 2,600 sworn members who police New York City’s subways. Together, this team advances the NYPD’s neighborhood policing philosophy within the transit system and works to improve the bureau’s preparedness, response, crime prevention, and counterterrorism efforts. In 2014, Paul was selected as team manager for the Police Commissioner’s Reengineering Initiative, defining goals and recommending reforms that would lead to improvements in the agency’s human capital and morale.
Specializing in transportation security, he is principally responsible for executive and strategic communications, policy review, and managing the bureau’s digital media platforms. He has worked to improve the safety and security of New York City’s transportation network through effective collaboration with transit policing partners, and he has dedicated much of his career to understanding and reducing sex offenses in public transportation. Paul holds a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology, a Certificate in Criminal Justice Education, a Master’s degree in Public Administration, and is a graduate of the 254th session of the F.B.I. National Academy.
Born and raised in Long Island, New York, Paul comes from a family with a long history of public service. He now lives in New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley with his wife and three children.
