NYPD Counter-Terrorism Unit, Police DC escort

The Counterterrorism Bureau of the New York City Police Department has what are called Critical Response Vehicles and Hercules Teams which routinely patrol the city. This unmarked van with heavy police DC escort is one of those. The lead and last police car are both units of the NYPD Highway Patrol and the second vehicle contains a bomb and chemical sniffing dog. Inside the unmarked blue van is a tactical squad of police in full riot gear. This unmarked blue van can be seen in videos of President Obama’s motorcades in New York City from last year.
