Want To See How The NYPD Disciplines Its Employees? Search For Yourself.

Officers' names. Disciplinary charges. Punishments. This huge trove of secret disciplinary records is available and searchable for the first time.

Posted on

The searchable database below includes information about roughly 1,800 of the New York Police Department employees who were accused of misconduct by the department between 2011 and 2015. In 2016, the NYPD removed these records from public view, citing a controversial state secrecy law. BuzzFeed News obtained the records, which are not a complete accounting of police discipline during these years, from a source who requested anonymity, and we are making them available here for the first time. For more information about how to navigate these documents, please read this story and BuzzFeed News’ previous investigation.

Each row in the data represents an individual disciplinary case decided by the department. You can click on the case number to learn about the accusations against the employee and to see how the case was resolved.
