Trials

Deputy Commissioner of Trials: Rosemarie Maldonado

The mission of the Office of the Deputy Commissioner of Trials is to conduct fair and impartial de novo disciplinary trials, to issue well-reasoned reports and recommendations to the Police Commissioner that comport with all applicable laws, and to ensure the efficiency of the adjudicatory process in a manner that safeguards the due process rights of Department members. Matters heard in this forum range from minor administrative infractions to serious offenses. NYPD disciplinary trials are governed by Title 38, Chapter 15 of the Rules of the City of New York and §14-115 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York. Pursuant to those provisions, disciplinary trials are open to the public.

All NYPD Disciplinary Trials are held at One Police Plaza, 4th Floor, New York, NY.* Please allow ample time to get through security screening.

As we emerge from the public health crises caused by the Coronavirus, the Deputy Commissioner- Trials has authorized the resumption of Departmental disciplinary trials. Our goal is to do so in a manner that reduces the impact of COVID-19 on members of the public and on members of the service. Accordingly, DCT will follow the social distancing guidelines set forth by the CDC and NYS Department of Health when assessing the maximum capacity of each trial room. The following steps will also be taken to protect the health of all participants:

  • Anyone entering a Department facility will be required to:
    • Wear a mask. A mask or face covering is a protective covering that covers the nose and mouth (e.g., surgical masks, N-95 masks, etc.)
    • Consent to Thermal Screening with a no touch infrared or forehead thermometer.
  • Each trial room will be carefully marked to ensure proper physical distancing.
  • The trial rooms will be regularly sanitized.
