Chief of Risk Management: Matthew V. Pontillo
The Risk Management Bureau measures the performance of police officers and identifies officers who might be in need of enhanced training or supervision. Employing a data-driven approach with information taken from lawsuits, misconduct complaints, and internal probes, the NYPD can quickly monitor patterns of potential misbehavior and take necessary corrective action as part of an early intervention system. The bureau also assesses whether the department's training and policies are effective or are in need of revision.
The bureau works with the city's inspector general and other government agencies in a collaborative effort to improve policing and community relations.
