  • Multiple investigations say absolutely.

    Taking bribes (Knapp Commission) to downgrading offenses, to stop and frisk, to forcibly committing whistleblower Adrian Schoolcraft (NYPD Tapes). NYPD has a long sordid history of rampant corruption, brought to light in grand expose's that manage to penetrate the ever present Blue Wall. It's not a "few bad apples", it is a systemic and pervasive belief in the inherent superiority/immunity of police officers.

  • No they are not

    The NYPD as a whole organization is not corrupt. There will always be corruption in every occupation you can imagine, as it is unavoidable. Out of the whole police department of approximately 34,500 officers, there could be like 100 that would be corrupt, or probably less. That would not mean that the rest of the 34,400 are corrupt too. One bad apple tends to spoil the bunch, the old saying goes. One person has one bad experience with one officer, and automatically, every police officer is to blame in the minds of some people.

  • Yes and no.

    It's not just the NYPD, there's corrupt police officers all over the place in a lot of different states, not just New York. People tend to say police are corrupt, and they tend to say the general police department is, but this is not true. There are corrupt police officers, yes, but it's not the entire department.
