Commander of PBQN named

Assistant Chief Diana Pizzuti has been named as Borough Commander of Patrol Borough Queens North, succeeding Assistant Chief James Tuller.
“Chief Pizzuti has over 25 years of experience serving the Police Department and the city,” Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said.
“Chief Pizzuti has presided over the most extensive transformation of the Police Academy’s curriculum, its rigorous physical education program, and recognition by national accrediting bodies for its overall program and for the acceptance by higher educational institutions of Police Academy courses for college credit,” continued Kelly. “Together with her other, extensive Department experience, Chief Pizzuti will be a great leader for the administration of police services in Queens North.”
In addition to her previous assignment, Pizzuti has commanded the 17th and Midtown North Precincts, as well as the Corruption Prevention Division of the Internal Affairs Bureau. She also has served as Executive Officer of the 13th Precinct.
A graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, Pizzuti holds a master’s in Education from Seton Hall University.
She succeeds Assistant Chief James Tuller, who became Borough Commander of Manhattan South earlier this month.
