NYPD Announces the Publication of its 2023 Strategic Plan

January 25, 2023

At today's annual "State of the NYPD" breakfast hosted by the New York City Police Foundation, New York City Police Commissioner Keechant L. Sewell announced the release of the department's 2023 Strategic Plan, a detailed guide for charting the brightest possible future for the NYPD and the people it serves.

The plan comes at a pivotal moment for the department as the Police Commissioner, and the newly installed executive leadership team, reflects on the significant achievements of 2022 and positions itself for continued success. The plan, as Commissioner Sewell said, invites all NYPD employees to "Step Forward" with her.

The Strategic Plan reflects the department's continued mission to fight crime and improve the quality of life of all New Yorkers, while working in partnership with the community. Upon that foundation, four primary goals - considered integral for the department's continuing evolution - are detailed.
These goals are:

  • Strengthening our workforce by seeking diverse talent, promoting wellness and providing effective training.
  • Transforming policing in New York City through continuous improvement and innovation.
  • Engaging our community partners to enhance relationships with all members of the public.
  • Promoting public safety and respect through the evolution of Neighborhood Policing.

Within the plan, each of the four goals is accompanied by focused objectives to accomplish them, and initiatives to provide actionable measures to be taken by the department.

"We must remain open of heart and mind to truly adopt this Step Forward philosophy since, at its core, it requires us to never stop innovating," said Police Commissioner Sewell. "We can never accept what we have as final and we must always strive to exceed expectations. This is what the NYPD has been built to take on, and through its professionalism, experience, and willingness to meet any challenge, I know that this philosophy will become engrained in the culture of our great organization."

Susan Birnbaum, the President and CEO of the Police Foundation, an independent nonprofit organization, said the Police Commissioner's address was a reminder of the decades-long partnership the NYPD and Foundation maintain to ensure a safe city.

"We're proud to support the NYPD and to help advance the strategic vision laid out by Police Commissioner Sewell," said Ms. Birnbaum. "This public-private partnership advances programs to prevent crime and thwart terrorism, build bridges in the community, and pilot new technologies."
