Ray Kelly: WTC Site To Get Nearly 700 Cops

NEW YORK (AP) — New York Police Department Commissioner Raymond Kelly says the World Trade Center site will eventually have 673 officers assigned to it.

Kelly spoke about the need for securing the site at an event Tuesday for the nonprofit Police Foundation. The 9/11 memorial will open on Sept. 11, 2011, and after that the new buildings.

Kelly has named a deputy commissioner for the World Trade Center command who is working on a security plan for the memorial service.

Kelly says the site needs special attention because it was attacked twice, and remains a target for terrorists.

    Thats way too many. Kelly is being paranoid. Get rid of the cops and use the military. Keep some helicopter gun ships on the roof. Anti aircraft missles and a few tanks will do. Kelly trying to beef up the welfare rolls on the NYPD.

  2. Tony Meiner says:

    Would not want to work there and deal with 700 cops and the TSA type security – that’s just ridiculous. Get ready for fondling like you get at the airport!!!

  3. NYCR-n-R says:

    What are 700 cops going to do against commercial airplanes?

  4. CSI says:

    Only if they put the same effort into securing the outer boroughs. At least a quarter of the effort they put into the WTC would be more then what they do now.
