Go on the job with New York City's elite Emergency Service Unit, the only such force in the nation.
They are trained to handle everything from water rescues to subway accidents. They are the Emergency Services Unit of the New York City Police Department, a unique force that combines the duties and skills of rescue and SWAT teams.
INVESTIGATIVE REPORTSTM goes on the job with New York's ESU team as they handle crises citywide. Watch as they rescue a man who is threatening to jump from the Triboro bridge, capture dangerous drug dealers in a Brooklyn, use the "jaws of life" to extricate a family trapped in a terrible car wreck and talk a distraught boy out of suicide. To handle these disparate situations, every member of the team is trained as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMTs), qualified in high-angle rope rescue, scuba, and a variety of heavy weapons. We'll hear from team members about the toughest situations they have faced, and the directors of the force detail the role it plays in protecting the city.
Thousands of times a year, the men and women of ESU respond with speed, equipment and experience. Come along for the ride.
