Patrolling Haiti: New York style

Plan was established before the devastating quake

    The New York rescue team finds two children alive in the Haiti rubble.

    Haiti's national police force will soon be getting some intense training... by New York's finest.  The NYPD and the federal government have formalized a plan, established before the devastating quake in Haiti, to train the force.   

    The agreement signed by Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and U.S. Assistant Secretary of State David Johnson provides an undetermined amount of federal funding for the effort. 

    The training teams that will eventually be dispatched are separate from the New York police and firefighters already helping out with earthquake relief efforts in Haiti. 

    Kelly was in the region days before the catastrophe to consult with Haitian authorities about anti-kidnapping measures.
