NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton will resign today, ABC News reports, just a week after Bratton announced he would retire in 2017.

Dozens of demonstrators, led by the Black Lives Matter group Millions March, “occupied” City Hall Park on Monday, calling for Bratton’s firing and the abolishment of the police, apparently hoping to touch off a sort of Occupy Wall Street-style movement on Mayor Bill de Blasio’s doorstep.

Bratton, the progenitor of the controversial “broken windows” theory of policing, has long been the target of civil rights activists’ ire, although it’s hard to say that his impending resignation has anything to do with the current protests.

The commissioner will be replaced by James O’Neill, NY1 reports, the current Chief of Department and a member of the NYPD since 1983. According to the Wall Street Journal, Bratton will return to the private sector.
