New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton has announced his resignation on Tuesday, ABC News is reporting.

Ahead of the announcement, Bratton, who had served twice as NYPC commissioner, had been pressured by groups associated with Black Lives Matter to step down. They organized protests in Manhattan on Monday, demanding accountability against what they view as police brutality against minority communities. Some even called the NYPD “terrorists.”  

The protesters insisted they wouldn’t go home until Bratton resigned. 

Despite these demands, Bratton's decision still comes as a surprise. He will officially resign next month to work in the private sector. 

As The New York Times is noting, Bratton is "the most widely recognized face in policing."
