The NYPD is committed to maintaining a welcoming environment for immigrant communities while also maintaining public safety for all. With this backdrop, the NYPD believes it is important to reiterate our immigration related policies.
- The NYPD does not inquire about the immigration status of crime victims, witnesses, or others who call or approach the police seeking assistance.
- The NYPD does not conduct civil immigration enforcement. Specifically, this department does not enforce administrative warrants issued by Immigration and Custom Enforcement agents or federal immigration judges solely in connection with civil immigration violations.
It is our city's resolve to remain a safe and welcoming place for all immigrants.
THE NYPD IS HERE FOR YOU.
