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 accepts the city's IDNYC as a valid and recognized form of government-issued identification including for the issuance of summonses and Desk Appearance Tickets.

  • The NYPD does not inquire about the immigration status of crime victims, witnesses, or others who call or approach the police seeking assistance.

It is our city's resolve to remain a safe and welcoming place for all immigrants.  
 



THE NYPD IS HERE FOR YOU.
