Description Description

The New York City Department of Investigation (DOI) is one of the oldest law enforcement agencies in the country with a mission of combating municipal corruption. It serves the People of New York City by acting as an independent and nonpartisan watchdog for New York City government, City agencies, and City employees, vendors with City contracts, individuals and entities that receive City funds.

The Technical Services Unit (TSU) is seeking a full-time Technical Investigator. The selected candidate will be expected to assist on all tasks related to the supervision of the agency’s covert equipment and the preservation of evidence. Some of the tasks include but are not limited to, conducting authorized or court-ordered covert electronic recordings; the handling and archiving of electronic evidence; and the use of photographic equipment. In addition, the candidate will also be expected to establish and preserve the chain of custody for electronic and digital evidence; the logging and securing of property; assisting with field assignments involving the use of electronic recording devices; and photo-documenting locations during the execution of search warrants.
Furthermore, the candidate will support the programming and installation of Internet Protocol (IP) video cameras and related recording devices.

If selected, the candidate will be fingerprinted and undergo a background investigation. In addition, because the position has a law enforcement and/or investigative function, the candidate’s consumer credit history will be reviewed during the background investigation, as permitted by NYC Administrative Code § 8-107(24)(b)(2)(A).
