Lessons From Mumbai

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says the city's private security guards need more training to avert attacks like those on hotels and restaurants in Mumbai last year.

Kelly told the city council today that the NYPD is hoping to build on the limited training that's going on now.

KELLY: We do training for units in some of these private security entities but it is spotty.

Commissioner Kelly says he'd like the Federal government to help provide them.
