I have been handling traffic cases for just over 30 years.In that situation here in NC they would eventually dismiss the ticket if the officer was unavailable,but you might have to go to court a few times first.They would make an attempt to subpoena an officer who had retired or moved,and if they were unsuccessful in getting officer in after a few tries,it would eventually be dismissed . If they serve the officer with a subpoena,he has to appear or face contempt of court charges.They give you a workout first in that you have to commit the time, but you may eventually win.If NY throws it out the first time,that's great.
