Bangladesh-origin American Nessa has recently been appointed as Sergeant in the New York Police Department (NYPD), a first for any female Bangladeshi in the NYPD.

The official Facebook pages of NYPD and US Embassy Dhaka celebrated her joining on the occasion of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM).

Nessa immigrated to the US at the age of 21 and juggled two jobs while studying English, the US Embassy Dhaka wrote on Facebook on Thursday.

Eventually she joined the NYPD and became the first Bangladeshi-American female Sergeant, it said.

"During #AAPIHM we celebrate her trailblazing achievement," it added.

Meanwhile, Bangladeshi American Police Association (Bapa) congratulated the police officer.

In a tweet, the association said: "Sgt. Nessa is an inspiration to the Bangladeshi community and especially to our female Officers who aspire to move up the ranks. You are motivating our females to join #NYPD. #weareproud."

Earlier in January, Bangladesh-origin American Shamsul Haque was promoted to the rank of Lt Commander in the Detective Squad of NYPD, a first for any Bangladeshi in the police department.
