Two high-ranking NYPD officials, including the department’s top lawyer, have quietly retired, the Daily News has learned.

Andrew Schaffer, deputy commissioner of legal matters, stepped away from his post on Nov. 30, officials said.

One of Schaffer’s chief responsibilities was making sure police initiatives — some of them controversial — fell within constitutional guidelines. The policies reviewed by his office include the stop-and-frisk initiative and the so-called Muslim surveillance program.
