Job Description


The New York City Department of Investigation (DOI) is one of the oldest law enforcement agencies in the country with a mission of combating municipal corruption. It serves the people of New York City by acting as an independent and nonpartisan watchdog for New York City government, City agencies, and City employees, vendors with City contracts, individuals and entities that receive City funds.

The Department of Investigation's Office of the Inspector General for the New York City Police Department (Office or OIG- NYPD) is authorized to investigate, review, study, audit and make recommendations relating to the operations, policies, programs and practices of NYPD, with the goal of enhancing the effectiveness of NYPD, increasing public safety, protecting civil liberties and civil rights, and increasing the public s confidence in the police force.

The Deputy Inspector General for Investigations (DIG-Investigations) will support the Inspector General by overseeing the Investigations unit, which conducts investigations into allegations of misconduct and corruption as well as deficiencies in the operations, policies, programs and practices of NYPD. The Unit assists in providing the evidentiary foundations for OIG- NYPD's reports and recommendations. The DIG-Investigations will also manage the Investigations Unit's complaint intake function, through which members of the public can make complaints regarding police operations, policies, and other issues.

The DIG-Investigations responsibilities include managing and supervising all facets of investigations, from complaint intake (if the matter arises through that mechanism) through the drafting and review of the Office's investigative and other reports concerning systemic issues within NYPD. The DIG-Investigations is also expected to establish and update investigative protocols for the Office and ensure that investigators are properly trained and performing their duties in conformance with those protocols. Managing the Investigations Unit's staff of investigators and Assistant Inspector Generals is a core responsibility of the DIG's position. This includes overseeing the assignment of work, driving individual performance, and other managerial functions. Under the DIG-Investigation's supervision, investigative staff will handle individual complaints, conduct significant investigations as a team, and collaborate with OIG-NYPD's Policy Analysis and Legal Units to identify, investigate, and produce public reports and recommendations concerning systemic issues involving NYPD. The DIG-Investigations will work closely with the Inspector General and First Deputy Inspector General, and, along with the Deputy Inspector General for Policy Analysis, will serve as part of OIG-NYPD's executive staff and will assist in managing the Office's overall operations.

Other responsibilities of the DIG-Investigations may include:
· Supervising, planning, and conducting reviews, studies, and audits of NYPD operations and policies;
· Drafting and editing OIG-NYPD's reports and recommendations;
· Working with OIG-NYPD's executive staff to develop and update OIG-NYPD's policies, protocols, and priorities;
· Liaising with relevant staff at NYPD (including the Internal Affairs Bureau), the Civilian Complaint Review Board, prosecutor's offices, and other City and law enforcement agencies to collect evidence, manage investigations, and stay abreast of current NYPD policies, procedures, initiatives, and operations;
· Recruiting, interviewing, and supervising full-time investigators and investigative interns; and
· Performing such other investigative tasks as the Inspector General deems necessary to fulfill OIG-NYPD s mandate.
