In 2016, Joseph A. D'Amico retired from a distinguished career in law enforcement which spanned more than thirty-five years. He served twenty-seven years with the New York City Police Department (NYPD) rising to the rank of Deputy Chief. He commanded many uniform and investigative units and prior to his retirement, served as Commanding Officer of the Police Commissioner's Real Time Crime Center, where he was instrumental in developing a state of the art, 24-hour investigative support center to assist detectives in solving violent crimes from the scene of the crime. The Crime Center was the first of its kind in U.S. law enforcement.
Following his tenure with the NYPD, he acted as the Chief Investigator for the Office of the New York State Attorney General for four years, where he oversaw and coordinated the efforts of 300 criminal and civil investigators assigned to statewide investigative units such as the Organized Crime Task Force, the Auto Insurance Fraud Unit, and the Medicaid Control Fraud Unit.
For the past five years Mr. D'Amico served as the fourteenth Superintendent of the New York State Police, where he was responsible for the overall management and policy of the second largest state police entity in the nation. As Superintendent, Joseph D'Amico commanded more than 5,000 troopers, investigators and civilian support staff who provide a full range of policing and public safety services to New Yorkers and other law enforcement agencies across the state.
In August of this year, he joined MSA Security and Investigations in New York City as Senior Vice President in charge of Operations. MSA specializes in providing niche security services such as explosive detection canine teams and bomb tech support for x-ray screening operations and serves clients all across the globe. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Management from the State University of New York and is a graduate of the Columbia University Police Management Institute. Mr. D'Amico resides with his wife Judy and their children in Rockland County.
