The New York Police Department (NYPD) published a six-page document that outlines its use policy for cryptocurrency transaction analysis last week.

The NYPD's use of such tools, sourced from unnamed "approved vendors," was not publicly known until now. The disclosure comes as part of a broader release of impact and use policies related to its surveillance capabilities. In the document, dated January 11, the NYPD said that it "utilizes cryptocurrency analysis tools to automate the search for information associated with cryptocurrency transactions in furtherance of criminal investigations."
