NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton on Wednesday named Ben Tucker his first deputy police commissioner.

The appointment of Tucker, who has worked as deputy commissioner of training since January, follows the unexpected resignation of Philip Banks, who stepped down as police chief days before he was due to be promoted to the deputy commissioner spot.
