The New York City Police Department (NYPD) operates 12 precincts in the Bronx. To find out which precinct you are covered by and where each precinct station house is located, click here. It will take you to a page on the NYPD’s website that shows you a map of where all the precinct station houses are located. Each is marked with a little blue bubble. Clicking on the bubble will give you the address of the precinct.

Note: The address locator feature on the website doesn’t appear to work and the phone numbers that pop up when you click on the little blue bubbles aren’t always accurate. For example, the number for the Bronx’s 52nd Precinct is actually the number for the 22nd Precinct.

Obtaining a copy of a crime report: 

Anyone who has filed a crime report with the Police Department can obtain a copy of it by going to your local precinct and requesting a copy. See addresses and phone numbers for all Bronx precincts above.

Filing a complaint about the police department:

There are two options if you want to file a complaint about police misconduct or corruption. Allegations of corruption and more serious allegations of misconduct should be filed with the Internal Affairs Bureau. Any other allegations of misconduct should be filed with the Civilian Complaint Review Board.

1) The Internal Affairs Bureau (IAB) investigates “allegations of corruption and serious misconduct against members of the NYPD.”

According to the NYPD website: The IAB Command Center office is open for complaint, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A complaint may be called in by phone to (212) 741-8401, by e-mail to IAB@NYPD.org, or by postal mail to Occupant, P.O. Box 1001, New York, NY 10014; to the Internal Affairs Bureau, located at 315 Hudson Street, New York, NY 10013 or in person at any Police Department facility.

2) Anyone who has knowledge of police misconduct can file a complaint with the Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB):

There are several ways to file a complaint with the CCRB:
--Call the CCRB Hotline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week: dial 311 (outside NYC dial 212-NEW-YORK; TTY/TDD - 212-504-4115).
--File in person at 40 Rector St., 2nd floor, Manhattan, Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
--File online using  the online complaint form.
--Write a letter to the CCRB at 40 Rector Street, 2nd floor, New York, NY 10006.
--Send a self-mailer complaint form (available by calling the CCRB).
--Visit any NYPD precinct to file a complaint. (See precinct addresses above.)

Precinct Community Councils:

Every precinct has an attached community council made up of volunteer members from local neighborhoods. Each month on a certain day (the fourth Thursday of every month, for example), the precinct councils hold public meetings at various locations inside the precinct’s designated confines, usually a church, school or community center. Anyone is welcome to attend and speak either publicly or privately with officers from each precinct. Often, either one of the commanding officers or one of their lieutenants attend these meetings and give reports on the status of crime in the precinct.
