ACS Commissioner Carrion resigns
The commissioner of the city Administration for Children's Services announced her resignation Monday.
Mayor Bill de Blasio, who accepted Gladys Carrion's resignation shortly after, acknowledged her four-decade tenure in public service.
But the move comes following several high-profile cases of child abuse in the city. One of those involved the death of a 6-year-old Harlem boy, Zymere Perkins.
Investigators say the boyfriend of the boy's mother killed him. The family reportedly had a long history of involvement with ACS.
The ACS, which has a nearly $3 billion annual budget, said it will emphasize the safety and well-being of New York City's children in its search for a new commissioner.
