The New York Dominican Officer Association recognized Aramboles as the highest-ranking Dominican-born officer.
Nicknamed "Rambo," he's also been the commanding officer of Washington Heights' 33rd Precinct and was a drug enforcement officer in the neighboring 34th Precinct earlier in his 30-year career.
He also previously worked in the NYPD Emergency Services Unit.
