Troop NYC was designated as an independent troop in 1982. Its origin can be traced to the early 1950's when, at the Attorney General's request, several Bureau of Criminal Investigation members were temporarily assigned to investigate organized crime on the New York City waterfront. The temporary detail gradually expanded, became permanent in 1961 and was renamed SP Manhattan in 1973. Troop NYC is the operational hub of numerous specialized units and details.
