New York City is the world’s number one terror target, and the NYPD’s Counterterrorism Bureau is on the front lines. Our cameras have gained unprecedented access into the daily operations of the Counterterrorism Bureau during the busiest season of their year. Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and the chiefs, detectives, and officers in the trenches invite us on the inside as they secure the nation’s largest city. During our four-month imbed, we roll out with nearly every specialized unit in the city. We deploy with the Hercules teams - ‘supercops’ clad in body armor and armed with 9-mm submachine guns. Hop on the train with the TORCH team – the heavy weapons strike force patrolling the stations and trains of the subway system. Zip through the harbor on a top-secret radiation-detection boat and dive with the Scuba Team for an underwater bomb sweep. Counterterror NYC takes you inside the NYPD’s herculean mission to keep New York City safe.
