New York City Department of Investigation

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.

Squad 1 is seeking an Assistant Inspector General. The Assistant Inspector General will be responsible for investigating fraud, corruption, and mismanagement relating to City agencies, employees, contractors and other organizations that receive City funding. The selected candidate will be expected to supervise highly confidential and sensitive investigations regarding allegations of fraud, bribery, sexual abuse, assault, and other corrupt activities involving, primarily, New York City Department of Correction (“DOC”) officials and persons or entities doing business with this agency. The selected candidate should have prior experience with a range of investigative techniques, including not only document review and witness interviews, but also wiretaps and controlled field operations.

The Assistant Inspector General will have primary responsibility with the “Telephone Monitoring Unit,” which has the responsibility of monitoring DOC inmate telephone calls for purposes of detecting and eliminating contraband within DOC facilities and investigating contraband distribution networks involving staff. The Assistant Inspector General will assist in supervising a staff of on-loan DOC employees and be responsible for coordinating these investigations with DOI staff, including the DOI K9 unit.

If selected, the candidate will be fingerprinted and undergo a background investigation. In addition for positions that have a law enforcement and/or investigative function, the candidate’s consumer credit history will be reviewed during the background investigation, and as otherwise permitted by NYC Administrative Code § 8-107(24)(b)(2)(A).
