The mayor of Rochester, New York named the city's first female police chief on Saturday, weeks after firing the previous chief amid protests over the death of a Black man in police custody. Cynthia Herriott-Sullivan, a top official at the Rochester Housing Authority who previously served as a city police officer for more than 20 years, takes over as interim head of the police department on Oct. 14, Mayor Lovely Warren said. The mayor fired the last chief, La'Ron Singletary, on Sept. 14 as racial justice demonstrations boiled over the department's handling of the asphyxiation death in March of Daniel Prude, 41, who was having a psychotic episode when he was arrested.
