NYPD Patrol Guide

The NYPD's Patrol Guide contains the rules that NYC police officers must follow in carrying out their official duties. When the CCRB investigates a complaint of police misconduct, it focuses on the details of the encounter and determines whether or not the officer's actions were improper based on the Patrol Guide, New York State law and the United States Constitution.

On January 15, 2021, the NYPD published it's first disciplinary matrix. You can read the current disciplinary matrix as of January 15, 2021 here.
