Erica Rivera, 27, was fired from the force last August for dating a man with a criminal record after a two-year investigation by the Internal Affairs Bureau that included questioning her about sex partners and secretly trailing her while off-duty. In addition to her relationship status, cops also used evidence of her taking her cousin, a convicted felon, to a train station as well as parking too close to a fire hydrant near her grandmother's building as part of their case to fire her. Rivera's troubles began when she was a rookie officer on Aug. Rivera was called on the carpet by her commanding officer and explained that the photo, taken in , was to celebrate "Throwback Thursday" — where people post old photos to the social media site. She added that she hadn't had any contact with Perez in three years. After the photo was taken, Perez went to prison for a nonfatal stabbing, Rivera told the Daily News.

Woman officer takes on NYPD over policy and wins – Women in the World
An NYPD highway cop is expected to be charged for allegedly wining and dining a Bronx woman he arrested for drunken driving, the Daily News has learned. Officer Carlos Becker was stripped of his badge and gun last month and is facing criminal charges for the alleged misconduct, according to two sources familiar with the case. The Bronx district attorney's office and the Internal Affairs Bureau launched probes after the year-old woman, Erica Noonan, reported to authorities that she blacked out after a March 24 dinner date with the cop at a Westchester County sushi restaurant followed by drinking in a Bronx bar. Cops are prohibited from associating with people they arrest to prevent the practice or appearance of illegally influencing the criminal case. Noonan turned over to investigators more than text messages she exchanged with Becker beginning March 14 — three days after he busted her for DWI. In the series of personal messages, the lovesick officer asked her out on dates, offered to cook her dinner, ran a computer check on her driver's license and claimed he had ordered a mini-police shield for her to carry in her wallet. Noonan's lawyer, Eric Sanders, said she was going public and planned to file a lawsuit to "empower herself as well as other silent victims to assert their civil rights against police abuse and misconduct.
