NYPD Transit Canine (K-9) Unit Installing Equipment For Temporary Agility Training Course On Roosevelt Island Empty Southtown Lot
The equipment has started getting set up for the NYPD's Canine Unit Training Agility course in the empty Southown lot across from the Riverwalk Bar & Grill. Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) VP of Operations Fernando Martinez explains from this earlier post:
The northern lot will be used on a temporary basis by the NYPD Transit K-9 unit. As you know, they currently train and patrol on RI. The unit will establish an agility course at the site for training purposes. NYPD may start training in late June or early July.More on the NYPD Transit Canine unit from earlier post.
