Welcome to the Official Website of the NYPD Monitor

Welcome. As you browse through our site, you will be introduced to our team and learn how the monitorship came about, the monitor’s role, the reforms required by the court, the progress that has been made in reaching those goals, and what is left to be done.

From the outset, our approach has been to work collaboratively with the NYPD and the plaintiffs in the lawsuits that led to the creation of the monitorship and to reach out to others--e.g., advocacy groups, community members, police unions and individual officers--who have a stake in the successful implementation of these reforms and in building trust between police officers and the communities in which they work. Currently, we are working with the parties on enhancing our community engagement to better listen and to hear, directly from the community on issues concerning the Monitorship in an effort to build trust and transparency.

Please check back with our site periodically because we will be updating and adding content as the process moves forward.
