JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s first chief security officer is stepping down.

Joseph Dunne was hired in 2012 to fill the newly created position. Dunne is a former New York City Police Department first deputy commissioner.

The position was created to coordinate security efforts at the agency’s facilities and the local law enforcement. The Port Authority operates bridges, tunnels, airports and ports in the New York area.

Port Authority board chairman John Degnan said Wednesday that deputy chief security officer Thomas Belfiore is to be named to succeed Dunne.
