Lawyers from the NYC Law Department represented the NYPD. That’s how it works. The Law Department is like the NYPD’s law firm.

The NYPD could decline representation by the Law Department if they wanted to. They don’t, because the Law Department knows what they’re doing.

They can self-represent or hire private outside counsel if they want. They just usually don’t, because their internal lawyers don’t usually handle these sorts of cases, and private outside counsel is expensive while the Law Department is free.
