BROOKLYN - Officers in the NYPD's Special Operations Division demonstrated Friday their readiness to respond to hostage situations.

In the scenario, a perpetrator was holed up in a building with a hostage. Police dropped from a helicopter onto the building's roof, while officers on the ground moved in to secure the building.

Police officials say the exercise is not isolated, and officers train year-round to respond to an attack.
