Muslim NYPD officer reinstated as department reviews its beard policy
by Erin Durkin, Thomas Tracy and Jennifer Fermino
A Muslim cop who was suspended without pay for sporting a beard has been reinstated as the NYPD reviews its policy on facial hair, officials said Friday.
Police Officer Masood Syed has been ordered back to work as the internal review begins, a spokesman for Public Advocate Letitia James said. The review should take about three months to complete, the spokesman said.
The NYPD confirmed that Syed was put back on full duty on June 24, but could not immediately confirm the department review.
