Penalties imposed on police officers founds guilty of charges alleging wrongful arrest
Police Department v Popovic, NYC Office of Admin. Trials and Hearings, OATH Index No. 544/00

Administrative disciplinary charges may be filed against a police officer alleging that he or she made an arrest in bad faith. The Popovic decision lists some of the penalties recommended by New York City’s Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings where a police officer is found guilty of such charges.

Penalties for bad faith or retaliatory arrests range from 10 to 30 days, depending upon the degree of infringement of the civilian’s rights. Some examples follow:

1. Loss of 25 vacation days for bad faith arrest in retaliation for complainant’s vulgar retorts to the officers’ provocative behavior;

2. 30 days’ suspension and disciplinary probation for bad faith arrest and strip-search of a civilian;

3. Loss of 10 vacation days for bad faith arrest in retaliation for past incident of arrogance to officers and displaying a falsified license;

4. Loss of 15 vacation days for bad faith arrest following argument about a police report;

5. Loss of 13 vacation days for bad faith arrest after civilian attempted to record the police officer’s badge number.
