K-9 units to fight NY subway crime


The New York Police Department has deployed the first K-9 units devoted exclusively to the subway, the city's top transit officer said Monday.

"We have four out there now, with another three to follow by mid-December," said James P. Hall, chief of the NYPD's Transit Bureau. "They won't work anywhere else but the subway."

The last K-9 unit dedicated solely to mass transit was disbanded in the 1980s, but Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly revived the idea in January.
