NY1 VIDEO: On September 27th of 1993, the Mollen Commission opened hearings on police corruption within the NYPD. The first day included bombshell testimony from Michael Dowd - a police officer who broke the so-called blue wall of silence to discuss in detail his own corrupt acts while on the force. As we take a look back at 20 years of NY1, the station re-visits Karim Hajee's report from the hearing.

NY1 FOLLOW-UP: The Mollen Commission would issue a scathing report on the NYPD's handling of corruption within the department. It included more than 100 recommendations - including the creation of an independent board to monitor the department's anti-corruption efforts. The Commission to Combat Police Corruption was created in 1995. As for Dowd, he would spend 10 years in prison on drug and racketeering charges. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
