The Inspector General (IG) for the New York City Police Department is a unit of DOI that operates independently of the NYPD. Pursuant to DOI’s Charter powers, the IG is charged with investigating corruption, fraud, waste and abuse in the NYPD. In 2013, the City Council – pursuant to Local Law 70 – expanded these duties to further require the IG to investigate, review, study, audit and make recommendations relating to the operations, policies, programs and practices of NYPD, with the goal of enhancing the effectiveness of NYPD, increasing public safety, protecting civil liberties and civil rights, and increasing the public’s confidence in the police force.

To carry out that mandate, the DOI Commissioner established the IG for the NYPD, which consists of approximately 40 investigators, attorneys, policy analysts, data analysts, auditors, and support staff. The DOI Commissioner has appointed an Inspector General to lead this team. The IG's office conducts outreach to New York City's communities, performs sophisticated data analysis to identify patterns and trends with respect to policing, and manages on-the-ground investigations that gather facts for IG reports and recommendations. NYPD is legally required to respond to IG's recommendations within 90 days. NYPD’s responses are publicly available on this website.
