The New York State Police Department held a special ceremony in which the American of Palestinian origin, "Palestine Sorour" was appointed to the command of the Bronx County, one of the five counties that make up New York City, with the rank of captain, to be the first woman of Arab descent to reach this rank.

The promotion of Sorour, who holds a Bachelor's degree in criminology and a master's degree in forensic psychology, and hails from the village of Beitunia in the Ramallah and Al-Bireh Governorate, came after her distinction in working with the New York Police Service, which is considered the largest in terms of police numbers in the United States of America.

It is worth noting that a number of Palestinian activists have assumed leadership positions in the past period, including Rashida Tlaib, who reached the US Congress, and Maher Al-Bitar, who was appointed Director of the Intelligence Service in the US National Security Council.
