There are three (3) Highway Patrol Precincts in NYPD, as well as one combined unit in Staten Island. As well as traffic functions on the Expressways and Parkways, they also provide escorts for protective details. They have an investigative unit for MV incidents involving deaths, and a DUI testing capability. You will often see HWY in Manhattan on red light overtime details as well as Graffiti Patrol. Highway is a Detail, and thus coveted by certain people. Speaking as a cop and Patrol Supervisor (now retired), Highway rarely responded to accidents on the roads they covered unless it was a major incident. The only NYSP that operate within NYC are those assigned to the various Task Forces. Marked NYSP units did patrol for a period of time after the muslims attacked NY. They, along with some NG units provided back up at the various choke points. There is No NYSP Troop assigned to NYC. Note that NYC is not just, as the elitists are fond of saying, Manhattan. Staten Island has three Precincts, just one of which covers more area then Manhattan. Likewise Brooklyn and Queens are large cities unto themselves, and all the boro's (possibily with the exception of The Bronx could be stand alone large cities. There are multiple Parkways and Expressways running through and around the perimeter of NYC. So, why do you think it funny that NYPD has a Highway Patrol Unit?

Hey Pat, I think we're all finding humor in that not only did he get caught with ESU just down the street, but with the NYSP even getting in on the act. It was NOT his day...

Lumpy- OK, i can see where someone might find humor in that, but can you please tell me where NYSP is mentioned as being on scene? Aimless- like all marked RMP's, they are identified by command. Highway will have "HWY 1" for example, indicating Highway Patrol Pct 1, marked on the rear fenders. Additionally, because of all the spare time they have, many will have unauthorized pinstriping or other logos on the vehicle or light rack. Like most cops, i don't hold highway in high regard.

I noticed that the guy with the M4 has the perfect "cop mustasche." I bet he has a flawless crew cut too. [:D]

Its an M500a, and it is not one of the earliest ones based on the shape of the bezel, but I cant tell off hand if it is one of the very newest ones with the LEDs on the opposite side. You can also tell it is a nerer model Aimpoint, though I can not tell if it is an M2 or ML2...

Nice rifle! The perp is faced with looking down the barrel of an M4 or staring down the throat of a vicious police dog. I'd choose the dog too considering the options given!

Pat, Very last sentence of the linked news article.

"and a highway patrol unit nearby". I think that perhaps you are confusing NYPD Higway Patrol with NYSP.

Ahh...I see clearly now Pat. Too many years in AZ have habituated me to thinking "Highway Patrol" means State Police. Either way, a job well done.

Impossible to tell the difference. If I'm not mistaken, the M2 is exactly the same as the ML2 aside from the latter's lack of night-vision compatability. - BUCC_Guy

Roger Lumpy- remember that NYPD has appx 40,000 MOS. That is probaly more then the combined departments of some states. The reality is that NYPD has many units that most other departments don't have (or have a need for) such as the Movie and TV unit and so on. In many jurisdictions, where the state has a police department, they will have cognizance over things like Highway, Crime Labs etc. In NYPD this is reversed. The SP have cognizance over a lot of things upstate, but aside from having a few cops detailed to specific TF, they have zero presence in NYC.
