A husband and wife have become the first couple in NYPD history to become captains on the same day. 

Alex Sarubbi-Barcia and Luis Barcia walked back to back onstage at a swearing-in ceremony at NYPD headquarters in Manhattan Friday, drawing loud cheers and applause. 

The two met in 2002 as recruits in the police academy, NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill said at a ceremony marking the promotions of 100 members of the force.

"It seems they might have a lot to thank the police department for, actually," O'Neill joked.
