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 Servimus", 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.

Det. Jason Fernandez was appointed to the NYPD January 1, 2006, and retired on November 11, 2022, from the Bronx Violent Crimes Squad after he suffered a line of duty arm injury. Now, Jason has a bigger battle: ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a degenerative and rare disease, better known as “Lou Gherig’s Disease,” which attacks the neurological system, thus making it difficult to walk, talk, and eat. Thus far, there is no known cure for ALS.
Members of the service have created a challenge coin to honor and support Det. Jason Fernandez, his wife and his children. The coins are $20 each, and all proceeds will go to the Fernandez family to assist with Jason’s medical costs, as well as install a lift for Jason in the Fernandez home.
This film was produced by two Retired Members, RDNY member Tony Mok and Chris Suarez.

Det/Lt. Kevin M.Hallinan’s book speaks to a adventure-packed and insightful journey through the evolution of law enforcement, the rise of counterterrorism and the birth of modern sports security. His fascinating inside look at a life in law enforcement spans layers of history, explores evolutions in national security, and features game-changing heroes and eye opening innovations. Kevin’s life and learning are at once informative, thrilling, entertaining-and perhaps most of all inspiring.
