The NYPD will be getting a high-speed combat vessel to respond to Mumbai-style terror attacks in New York Harbor, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said Tuesday.
More than $5 million in federal funding has been earmarked for the 71-foot craft, which can hit speeds of 40 knots and will be able to carry up to 30 police officers fully armed with heavy weapons, Kelly told a meeting of the City Council public safety committee. The vessel is expected to be delivered in about a year...
...The new high-speed boat will be outfitted with radiation detection equipment and infrared cameras, as well as a satellite communication facilities, the NYPD said.
