    So, are they police officers? What is the "Special Patrol" thing on their patches?

        They say they are peace officers in the video so I guess they're cops.

          Yeah, they are kinda ambiguous about the whole thing.

            As I understand it, "peace officers" do not have all the powers of "police officers" in New York State.

              If you notice no guns. And they can not even salute properly.

              Peace officer has a different meaning in NYS than it does in CA.

                  Are those yellow lights on top of the suv? So you don't have the red/blue setup? I'm getting this from the shot around :50 seconds, which is quick, so maybe I'm wrong.

                      I know Wikipedia cannot always be trusted, but here is the link about them.

                      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rooseve...ety_Department

                      Also, it says that:

                      "Power and authority

                      Roosevelt Island Public Safety officers are designated as New York City Special Patrolmen which gives them New York State peace officer status. With peace officer powers, officers can make warrantless arrests, carry and use handcuffs, issue summonses, and use physical and deadly force. Arrests are processed by the officers, and persons arrested are processed and lodged at Central Booking Manhattan, where they await arraignment."
                      "Abandon your animosities and make your sons Americans." - Robert E. Lee, 1865

                          The video seems kinda melodramatic.

                              Depends. They're not Police Officers and don't carry guns, but they can make traffic stops, issue summonses, and they respond to 911 calls.

                              They are 'Special Patrolmen' according to NYC.
