NYC Police Commissioner Jeffrey Maddrey tapped the best uniformed seat

NYPD chief Jeffrey Maddrey is set to take over as the department’s senior uniformed officer, The Post learned.

Maddrey, promoted from the Chief of Patrol, will take over as head of the department from Chief Ken Corey, who resigned from his post with less than a year in the new administration, according to an NYPD order obtained by The Post.

The order, which was circulated to all NYPD commands, named Maddrey as acting chief of the department as of Wednesday morning.

This will be Maddrey’s third transfer under the new administration.

It was unclear if the chief was the permanent choice for one of the force’s most public positions.

Maddrey was not without controversy during his tenure with the NYPD.

He came under fire late last year after stepping in and clearing up the gun arrest of a former NYPD officer, The Post previously revealed. The incident was referred to the Brooklyn County Attorney’s Office by the Civilian Complaint Review Board, but prosecutors said no criminal charges were warranted.

“A thorough investigation by our Office of Law Enforcement has found no basis to believe that a crime has been committed in this case,” a spokesman for the prosecutor’s office said Tuesday.

According to department chief Ken Corey, only 19% of arrests by neighborhood safety teams were for firearms.

It was unclear if Maddrey faced internal discipline over the incident.

The senior police officer was also previously accused of having extramarital affairs with NYPD subordinates.

One of the women, Tabatha Foster, sued the then-deputy boss, claiming he had relentlessly pursued her and manipulated her into staying in a years-long abusive relationship.

This lawsuit remains active in the Manhattan Supreme Court. NYC Police Commissioner Jeffrey Maddrey tapped the best uniformed seat
