New York Police Department Commissioner Bill Bratton will announce his resignation on Tuesday, multiple outlets reported.

Bratton will be replaced by the current Chief of Department James O’Neill, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing unnamed city officials.

Mayor Bill de Blasio is scheduled to announce the move at a joint news conference with Bratton at noon, according to the Journal.

Bratton will reportedly remain in his post until September — as his replacement transitions into the job — before he returns to the private sector.
