Welcome to Retired Detectives Police Department City of New York

About Us

Our History

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.

Present Day:

The RDNY meets every second Wednesday of the month. The location varies from borough to borough. There will be notifications prior to the date.

Go Fund Me

Retired Sergeant Richard Reers’ son-in-law is suffering from
genetic end stage kidney disease. At age 37, after a year of
grueling dialysis, Jonathan is about to undergo a kidney transplant thanks to his sister, Jillian. 
Jonathan has given 16-plus years of service as an EMT and Volunteer Firefighter of the
Commack Fire Department. Jillian continues to serve as an
This event will take a major financial toll on the family as Jonathan will be out of work and without pay for several months, and Susan, who is a Commack Middle School Special Ed teacher, will be docked each time she takes off from work to help care for their family. Jonathan and Susan have three sons, all toddlers. The family’s
friends and co-workers have set up a Go Fund Me account to
assist with their medical expenses. Any assistance rendered will be greatly appreciated.

WTC Medical Monitoring

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.
