New York's Finest Snow-Tow the Line

A dozen NYPD cops are grabbing their mitts and putting on their coats to tackle Old Man Winter.
The snowmen with badges are being trained to operate departmental tow trucks in the event civilian drivers get snarled by a winter storm, police sources said yesterday.
The initiative arose in the aftermath of December’s massive blizzard that practically brought the Big Apple to its knees, sources said.
During the severe storm, the Police Department came to the rescue of a large number of civilian tow-truck drivers snowed in at their homes.
