Criminal Intelligence Division

The Criminal Intelligence Division (CID) provides investigative assistance, intelligence, and information to other law enforcement agencies in joint efforts to promote public safety. Additionally, members of the CID conduct investigations into suspected terrorist activity and several CID members are assigned to work in FBI Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTF) and intelligence or fusion centers across New York. CID has investigators assigned to its Counter-Terrorism Unit, specializing in the prevention and detection of terrorist activity within the Department’s purview and will oversees the Department’s Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) program in which staff in correctional facilities and parole offices can report directly to OSI suspect behavior that may, for example, be indicative of radicalization of an employee, incarcerated individual, or parolee. CID also conducts threat investigations which include, but are not limited to, threats emanating from the incarcerated individual and parolee population and frequently concern the safety and security of Department staff. Additionally, CID’s Analysis Unit is responsible for the collection, analysis, and reporting of information, data, and intelligence related to the investigations and activities of the OSI’s Divisions.
