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.
