I once saw a video of a guy who was on the roadbed. There were a few police officers on the platform just trying to negotiate with the guy. They weren't even hesitating to go on the roadbed. I don't think they're suppose to put themselves in that kind of danger.

The short answer is no. The only cops who can go on the roadbed while power is still on are cops assigned to the vandal squad.

It will never happen. Too risky. Even though they have cops take the track safety class.

So if a terrorist ran into a tunnel with a bomb, an NYPD cop who chases him into the tunnel is violating rules?

 

Yes, and knwoing the way the NYPD works they would try to hang the cop. There not trained to go in the hole, yea that are track qualified but that doesn't mean they know what there doing. This is why they have MoW workers or construction flagmen escort them.

Not sure about that but if I were a police officer and such a scenario took place - I'm going after that terrorist. I couldn't let such an ordeal lay on my chest. That's if the bomb has done its "job" knowing that I could've done something.

Flat foots arnt trained to diffuse bombs. In the real word of life and death, a NYC officer is trained to call the bomb into central command and secure the area and get the civlians away from the bomb. There is no reason to go near it if you are not bomb squad, theres nothing you can do to diffuse it. Theres nothing to be on your chest for not trying to either unless youd rather be the hero who jumped on the grenade.

1005 rite, and the NYPD dont go onto the tracks unless there trained too do so. and that would be the transit officers and not all of them are, i was a transit AUXILIARY police officer and i found that out years ago. its sad but true, and yea if a cop runs onto the tracks if not trained can be hung out too dry
