NYPD conducts drill on Grand Concourse

Dozens of police officers gathered outside Hostos Community College Tuesday as part of a training exercise.

The NYPD Disorder Control Unit conducted the drill and took over much of Grand Concourse. Police also set up a mobile communications division truck and blocked off some pedestrian traffic.

It is not yet known what the unit trained for or why the Concourse was chosen to host the drill.
