DOCCS Office of Special Investigations (OSI)
Overview and Mission
Vigorously Pursuing Justice

The New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) Office of Special Investigations (OSI) serves as the Department’s investigative body, pursuant to Directive 0700 and Correction Law §§ 112 and 621. The primary mission of OSI is to advance the mission and statutory mandates of the Department; vigorously pursue justice through fair, thorough, and impartial investigations; and foster accountability, integrity, and safety within the Department.

OSI’s fundamental goal is to prevent, detect, and investigate abuse, fraud, waste, misconduct, corruption, and criminal activity, among other matters, and to help promote integrity within New York State’s correctional and community supervision system. OSI is a 24-hour a day, 365-day a year operation that is never “off-duty.” It is staffed with over 220 dedicated employees. OSI members respond to fatalities of incarcerated individuals; allegations of excessive force; sexual abuse and misconduct; narcotics and contraband smuggling; biological threats; counterterrorism, violent extremism, and anti-radicalization efforts; attempted escapes; fugitive apprehensions and transports, and much more. OSI not only responds to various scenarios, but also uses its significant investigative, technological, and tactical expertise to proactively conduct special operations such as inspections and monitoring to accomplish its mission. Further, OSI collaborates with outside law enforcement agencies and prosecutors to leverage resources and, when there is evidence of criminality, seek justice. As OSI looks to the future, it will continue to build its capabilities and serve DOCCS and the State as a premier investigative organization.

Values
Accountability and Integrity

The DOCCS Office of Special Investigations recognizes that accountability and integrity are essential to maintaining and promoting public trust in New York State’s correctional and community supervision system. Therefore, OSI advances the Department’s mission by fostering accountability, justice, and integrity within the Department. These goals are best served by OSI when its members follow the basic principles of integrity, objectivity without bias or prejudice, independence, confidentiality, professionalism, competence, courage, diligence, trust, honesty, fairness, forthrightness, transparency, accountability, courtesy and respect for others and themselves. OSI members are held to the highest expectations in maintaining and advancing these values. Furthermore, accuracy, objectivity, fairness, timeliness, and usefulness of investigative findings are cornerstones of OSI. 

Additionally, DOCCS’ OSI is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion by ensuring equal justice and opportunity without discrimination against any person based on their protected class: race, color, national origin, creed/religion, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions), disability (physical or mental), age (18 and older), citizenship status, predisposing genetic characteristics, marital status, familial status (being pregnant, caring for a child under 18, or seeking to adopt a child under 18), sexual orientation (including perceived sexual orientation), gender (including sexual harassment), gender identity, gender expression, military status, prior arrest/criminal record, prior convictions (unless certain requirements have been met), domestic violence victim status, and/or retaliation for filing a complaint.  

Finally, OSI recognizes the importance of being free from personal or external impairments to independence or conflicts of interest. The pursuit of justice must further be free from bias, prejudice, or any other impairment to objectivity. While part of the Department, OSI maintains an independent attitude to ensure impartiality and fairness in fulfilling OSI’s goals and functions. OSI and its members strive to adhere to the highest standards of conduct, training, and ethics to uphold these values and fulfill its mission.

OSI's Organizational Structure

DOCCS’ OSI is divided into five major Divisions: Criminal Intelligence Division, Fugitive Investigations Division, Internal Affairs Division, Narcotics Investigations Division, and Sex Crimes Division. OSI is led by a Deputy Commissioner/Chief, who reports directly to the Commissioner and Executive Deputy Commissioner. An Assistant Commissioner and Director of Operations, along with Deputy Chief Investigators, comprise OSI’s executive leadership. OSI’s investigative staff have a wide range of experience, education, and backgrounds, including those having worked in other state or federal law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies, and have extensive knowledge of the corrections and parole system.

Most Wanted
Be On The Lookout
Who is Most Wanted

Find out which individuals are wanted by the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision's (DOCCS) Office of Special Investigations who have been designated as its Most Wanted Fugitives. They should be considered ARMED and DANGEROUS.

How to Provide Leads and Tips

NEVER attempt to apprehend a fugitive yourself. If you have information on the location of any of these fugitives, you can contact OSI 24 hours a day / 7 days a week to report it. All leads and tips are treated as confidential information.

If an immediate response is necessary (e.g., the wanted person is spotted at a location), please call “911” and report it to the police.

A Message from OSI's Chief

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” This quote from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. captures the essence of what the DOCCS Office of Special Investigations embodies. OSI investigators vigorously pursue evidence in a professional, independent, objective, and fair manner. This pursuit of justice, consistent with the constitution we are sworn to uphold, is ultimately a means to hold the guilty accountable and exonerate the innocent. These investigations frequently start with a person filing a complaint with OSI. If you have filed a complaint or are planning to do so, please know that we appreciate you bringing the allegations and your concerns to our attention.  Each complaint is thoroughly reviewed so that we can address them in an effective and efficient manner.  

You should know that OSI is comprised of a highly trained, diverse group of professional investigators. I for one have over 25 years’ experience working in the criminal justice system, as an inspector general; prosecutor; and defense attorney. Through that experience, I’ve come to learn that integrity is vital for successful organizations. By promoting integrity within DOCCS, OSI helps foster a safe environment for incarcerated individuals, those under community supervision, and Departmental employees.  – Darren Miller, Deputy Commissioner and Chief of OSI
