NEW YORK — The chief of the New York Police Department says city police could take down a plane, if necessary.
Commissioner Ray Kelly told CBS's 60 Minutes Sunday that after the Sept. 11 attacks, he decided the city couldn't rely on the federal government alone. He set about creating the NYPD's own counterterrorism unit. Kelly says the department could take down a plane "in a very extreme situation."
