From The Wall Street Journal:

The New York Police Department will create a unit of 350 specially trained officers dedicated to counterterrorism efforts across the city, Commissioner William Bratton said Thursday. Mr. Bratton also announced an effort to ramp up neighborhood policing by requiring that officers from the city’s 77 precincts spend more time in the local communities. The plan, which is still being hammered out, would result in a reduction in the number of officers assigned to specialty roles and increase the number of patrol officers, Mr. Bratton said.
