The RDNY came into being in April of 1955, when a small group of Retired New York City Detectives decided to get together for a social meeting. As a result of that meeting, the idea of forming an Association that could further assist retired Detectives with retirement benefits and to do charitable work came to fruition.
This group decided to meet again that following month to continue your efforts and also to begin a life long bond that law enforcement officers share, especially Detectives.
The RDNY Incorporated later that same year and became officially known as "The Retired Detectives of the City of New York". They adopted the motto "Fideliter Servivimus", which means "We have served faithfully". Today we serve 1400 members and we are recognized as a Fraternal Organization within the Law Enforcement Community.
The RDNY meets every second Wednesday of the month. The location varies from borough to borough. There will be notifications prior to the date.

Little Steven Van Zandt's Policeman's Ball was held on December 19, 2018 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City. This has been a godsend for fundraising and support for members of the NYPD. Little Steven works with RDNY Board Member Kevin Schroeder raising funds for the DEA Widows and Childrens Fund as well as the NYPD With Arms Wide Open Fund, for children with special needs. $250,000 was raised this year alone, and in the four years Steven and Kevin have been raising funds, they have reached One Million Dollars! It was an amazing night with Little Steven, the evenings MC, Vincent Pastore and Tony Sirico as well as many other luminaries, supporters of the NYPD and members of the NYPD. Entertainment was provided by Max Weinberg's Orchestra, Gary US Bonds and the NYPD Emerald Society Pipes and Drums.

All MOS, active and retired, who participated in the 9/11 rescue and recovery operations are strongly encouraged to enroll in the WTC Medical Monitoring Program. They are expert in assisting those who were exposed to materials that have thus far resulted in over 1700 NYPD Diagnoses of cancer. In addition, over 140 MOS have died as a result of 9/11 related cancers. Early testing, diagnosis and treatment is the key to helping ourselves and our families.
