The Metropolitan Transportation Authority announces appointment of a new MTA Chief of Police, John Mueller

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has announced the appointment of a new MTA Chief of Police, former Yonkers Police Commissioner John Mueller.

“John Mueller is everything the MTA needs to lead a growing police force that riders depend on to keep our transportation system safe,” said MTA Chief Safety Officer Patrick Warren. “John’s experience in leading and developing police operations, and ability to effect positive change was what made him such a strong candidate. In his time at Yonkers PD, he understood the importance of community collaboration that built trust and helped reduce crime nearly in half in the third largest city in the state.”

Mueller started his career in law enforcement with the NYPD in 1992 before joining the Yonkers PD two years later as an officer in the 4th Precinct. During his decade at Yonkers PD, the city saw a 45% reduction in crime. The reduction was credited to focused community engagement by officers, a program pushed by Mueller during his time as Commanding Officer.

Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano says, “John Mueller is an exemplary police officer in every way, serving 28 years for the residents of our city with honor and respect. As Commissioner, he strategically led Yonkers Finest to become one of the top police departments in the nation, making us one the safest cities of our size with his laser–focus approach to fighting crime, including increased community engagement and precision policing. I am confident his transparent and dedicated approach to law enforcement will transition well to the MTA Police in providing greater public safety for all.”

Congratulations, Chief Mueller, on your new appointment and on your exemplary career thus far and continuing commitment to public service.
