Arrest Procedures in New York City

  1. 1.  As a lawyer with the Lazzaro Law Firm in Brooklyn, New York, James Kilduff focuses on criminal defense. James Kilduff has served as a lawyer to clients accused of such crimes as robbery, assault, criminal possession, and murder. When New York City police place an individual under arrest, they first handcuff the person and take him or her to the local precinct. There, an officer obtains the individual’s personal information and fingerprints. After taking the person's valuables into custody and taking possession of any illegal items, the officer processes the arrest and seeks out any potential warrants for the person's arrest. During this time, typically lasting four to six hours, the arrested individual must remain in a holding cell.
  2. 2.  During the processing time, an arrested person may make up to three local calls or collect out-of-town calls. Once processing is complete, he or she travels to Central Booking for arraignment. This 8- to 12-hour process occurs at a courthouse and may include interviewing by the Criminal Justice Agency for court recommendation purposes. The person then may speak with an attorney before appearing for formal presentation of charges and rights, at which point the attorney must enter a plea of guilty or not guilty. After a not-guilty plea, the judge decides whether the person will be released on his or her own recognizance, also known as ROR, or on bail.
