Chief Jeffrey Maddrey back in one of the NYPD’s top spots

NYPD chief Jeffrey Maddrey is back in one of the department’s most prestigious posts after being ousted from the spotlight just four months ago, The Post has learned.

Maddrey was named Chief of Patrol on Friday, a key position in the NYPD’s senior ranks, replacing Chief Kathleen O’Reilly, who has only been in office since January, according to a department memo obtained by The Post.

Sources told the Post that Maddrey had his eyes set on his new role before Mayor Eric Adams was sworn in – and after the election, he boasted to department members that the job was his under a new administration.

However, Maddrey was later pushed into a position as chief of housing, with controversy hanging over his head over his involvement in assisting a retired police officer cleared of gun charges in Brooklyn.

“Big fk to O’Reilly,” a source told The Post, adding, “Apartments are a dump.”

“You either go there as a placeholder before something better shows up, or go there after you’ve been dumped by something better.”
