Chief of Internal Affairs: Miguel A. Iglesias

The Internal Affairs Bureau (IAB) is dedicated to preserving integrity, which is critical to the function of the Police Department, and fighting corruption within the NYPD. The department cannot successfully serve the public without maintaining the public's trust. IAB helps to ensure that trust by detecting, investigating, and bringing to justice the small number of New York City police officers and civilians who engage in misconduct and corruption.

IAB operates its Command Center 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The bureau can receive complaints from the public and NYPD service members by telephone, email, and mail. Allegations of corruption can also be reported in person at any NYPD facility. Individuals who filed a complaint, can check on the status of their complaint by contacting the Internal Affairs Bureau. The department also maintains a non-recorded anonymous tip-line.

While IAB's investigations are not made available to the public, the NYC Commission to Combat Police Corruption provides oversight and a level of transparency through continual evaluation of the NYPD's anti-corruption programs and efforts.
