NEW YORK - There are few people who know the city better than cops and cab drivers, and now they're teaming up to help make streets safer. 

The NYPD Sergeants Benevolent Association announced that it will train cabbies to handle various situations, such as what to do if they witness a crime and what to do if they're a victim of a crime. They'll also receive basic safety tips for driving. 

SBA head Ed Mullins says that as two of the most visible groups in New York City, it's a "no brainer" to be working together. 

The training is just for yellow taxi drivers so far, but both want to expand it to include outer borough green cabs too.
