New officers get first depoyment in Times Square
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Crowd control in Times Square on New Year's Eve is the dubious first assignment for 1,500 newly appointed NYPD officers.

Times Square will be their first major deployment, and no doubt a test of their patience and people skills.
They will be part of a massive security force on duty in Times Square Saturday.
