JOANNA SEYBERT, District Judge.
On August 29, 2014, incarcerated pro se plaintiff Gerald Jabbar Mobley ("Plaintiff") filed a Complaint in this Court pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 ("Section 1983") against the Nassau County Police [Department], Nassau County, P.O. William Bourguignon, P.O. Hector Bourren, P.O. Jason Collins, Det. Stephen Firestone, Det. Silvia Marquez, P.O. Leonard Mathewson, P.O Robert Phoneuf, and Sgt. Richard Soto (collectively, "Defendants"), accompanied by an application to proceed in forma pauperis.
Upon review of the declaration in support of the application to proceed in forma pauperis, the Court finds that Plaintiff's financial status qualifies him to commence this action without prepayment of the filing fee. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 1914(a); 1915(a)(1). Therefore, Plaintiff's request to proceed in forma pauperis is GRANTED.
Plaintiff's claim against the Nassau County Police Department is not plausible and is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE.
The Clerk of the Court is directed to forward copies of the Summonses, Complaint, and this Order to the United States Marshal Service for service upon the Defendants without prepayment of fees, and to serve notice of entry of this Order in accordance with Rule 77(d)(1) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure by mailing a copy of this Order to the pro se Plaintiff at his last known address. See FED. R. CIV. P. 5(b)(2)(C).
