NYPD Chief: Police Could Take Down Plane if Needed

NEW YORK (AP) — The chief of the New York Police Department says city police could take down a plane if necessary.

Commissioner Ray Kelly tells CBS' "60 Minutes" 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 counter-terrorism unit. He says the department is prepared for multiple scenarios and could even take down a plane.

Kelly didn't divulge details but said "obviously this would be in a very extreme situation."
Other measures include sending NYPD officers abroad, using radiation detectors and creating a network of surveillance cameras in Manhattan.
The interview airs Sunday evening.

It comes two weeks after the tenth anniversary of 9/11, when hijackers flew planes into the World Trade Center and Pentagon.

What he's saying is the NYPD have in its possession a couple of SAMs missiles. I like the way he's keeping this a secret, though.

Mr Kelly refused to give details of whether the NYPD has surrface-to-air missiles or armed helicopters with the capability of bringing down a plane.

Police sources told the New York Post that Mr Kelly was referring to a weapon that can be mounted to almost any police helicopter.

The NYPD reportedly has had a Barret .50 caliber rifle, which is capable of bringing down a planes, for the past four years.

The weapon is stored in an NYPD safe and only deployed in high-risk situations, such as when the President is in the city.

Deputy commissioner Paul Browne last night confirmed that, 'NYPD Aviation has weapons that could be deployed with that capability'.

Oh wow, they just got anti-air rockets? I've seen them with NYPD Corvettes parked outside the municipal buildings.
