Break in the Case

New York City Police Department
True Crime

Welcome to Break in the Case, the true crime podcast written and produced by The New York City Police Department in conjunction with the New York City Police Foundation. Listen as we follow the world’s greatest detectives to crime scenes—some which you may know, some which you certainly don’t. In Season 2, retired Detective Sergeant Wally Zeins joins Break in the Case as our new narrator. Wally worked at the NYPD from 1973 to 2003, ending his career on Night Watch, an exclusive team that investigates all the homicides and high-profile crimes between the hours of midnight and 8 a.m. Prior to joining Night Watch, Wally also served on the hostage negotiation team and became a commanding officer.

  • Keeps evolving!

    Love this podcast! There were great episodes in Season 1like my faves : Monique, Queens Sniper! Liked Baby Hope but narration was long, like hearing the real voices rather than audio book style. Season 2 is FAB! Keeps getting better with exciting stories, more diversity and incredible writing!

  • Potential

    Season 1 was the best true crime podcast ever created, hands down. Season 2 paused for well over a year and loss all momentum and the entire format changed for some reason. Months between episodes, less interesting topics like the dark web, and shorter episodes. Please be consistent with interesting NYC cases where the list is endless, longer episodes, real audio from the interview room, and even bring back the original music and sound effects. That break in the case theme is memorable and g... more

  • Well done.

    Down to earth, no frills, just the story. So tired of podcasts that are full of commercial, this is a refreshing change. I like the safety commercials too. Thank you for your public service and commitment.

  • One of the best podcasts!

    The narrator is an AMAZING and engaging story-teller. The interviews are very natural and never sound rehearsed. I love hearing these stories and wish there was a lot more content. In our current cultural climate, this podcast stands as an important reminder that the justice end of true crime necessarily includes the heroism and dedication of our people in blue. I’m not a New-Yorker, but I always feel a lot of admiration for the NYPD listening to these retellings.
