An officer can be fired for an incident that results in serious physical injuries, violates a restraining order or is part of a pattern of abuse.
Pontillo's group spent more than a year shaping the new guidelines.
They looked at five years of case outcomes to get a sense of penalties that had been applied and studied how other police departments — including Los Angeles, Denver and New Orleans — built their guidelines.
Misconduct complaints are investigated by the watchdog Civilian Complaint Review Board and the NYPD's internal affairs bureau.
If departmental charges are filed, an officer can either agree to a penalty or take the case to trial before an administrative judge.
The judge sends any punishment recommendations to First Deputy Commissioner Benjamin Tucker, who passes his recommendation to Shea.
