First Responder Friday honors NYPD Captain Jamiel Altaheri

NEW YORK (WABC) -- This First Responder Friday we honor NYPD Captain Jamiel Altaheri.

Captain Altaheri was just named the new commanding officer at the 115th Precinct.

He is the first Yemeni-American to hold the position.

He will be serving the northern portion of Queens including Jackson Heights, East Elmhurst, North Corona.

Captain Altaheri is also a member of the First Fraternal Organization representing officers of Mideast and Turkish descent.

We thank him and his family for his service to Queens and New York City.



Whether it's helping out, celebrating a milestone of service, or a first responder in need -- we want to hear about it!
