Law and Order

Deakins, Logan, Barek and Carver in front of the One Police Plaza.

One Police Plaza is the headquarters for the New York City Police Department, located on Park Row across the street from City Hall.

The NYPD's headquarters houses an anticrime computer network, essentially a large search engine and data warehouse operated by detectives to assist officers in the field with their investigations.

The Major Case Squad, Internal Affairs Bureau, Technical Assistance Response Unit, Special Frauds Unit, and Forensics Accounting Office are all located at One Police Plaza.


As the Major Case Squad is based out of One Police Plaza, it is shown in every episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

  • One Police Plaza is referred to colloquially by NYPD personnel as "One P.P." or (somewhat derogatorily) "the Puzzle Palace."
