NYPD Oversight Law - Establishing independent oversight of the NYPD (Local Law 70)
- Assigned responsibility for NYPD oversight to the Commissioner of the Department of Investigation. (In NYC, the DOI currently oversees about 300 city agencies - including the Fire Department, Department of Education and Human Resources Administration – but not the NYPD.)
- Oversight includes reviewing NYPD operations, policies, programs and practices.
- Reports will be made public and revisited annually to see if recommendations have been followed.
There is independent monitoring of the FBI, CIA, LAPD and every major New York City agency except for the NYPD.
