Information Technology

Bringing the NYPD’s IT infrastructure up to higher operating level is an absolute priority. The department is committed to a city wide effort to complete the evolution of the NYPD from typewriters to computers. A major donation from the Police Foundation enabled the department to finish the project that includes:

  • Laptops in every Radio car: The NYPD will now have the capability to connect officers to their wide array of information including the Real Time Crime Center
  • Upgrades to NYPD facilities: Computer systems and infrastructure upgrades in 29 critical NYPD buildings.
  • Security Incident & Event Management: Security Monitoring System that provides a central detection and defense against any incident immediately.
