Patrol Guide


Administrative Guide

New York City Local Law No. 129 of 2016, mandates the New York City Police Department to publish the Patrol Guide online for the public to view. Currently, the Department is revising the Patrol Guide by relocating polices that are administrative in nature to our Administrative Guide. To continue our commitment to transparency, whenever a procedure is relocated from the Patrol Guide to the Administrative Guide, that procedure and its corresponding section will be posted on the Department’s internet website. Ultimately, when the revision of the Patrol and Administrative guides are complete, the Administrative Guide will be published online in its entirety.
