History of the NYPD Highway Patrol
The NYPD Highway Patrol's origins begin in 1911 with the formation of the NYPD's first motorcycle
squad, which was formed to meet the challenges of handling increasing
traffic danger concomitant with the rise of automobile use. The
unit—then simply known as the Motorcycle Squad—was enlarged as
automobile traffic and speeding arose as major problems for the city,
and in 1929, the unit was expanded to include armored motorcycles for
use in anti-gang activities by the NYPD.
In 1933, the unit expanded to include a formally designated "Grand
Central Parkway Motorcycle Squad" for patrol on a limited-access
Until 1972, the unit remained primarily focused on the Motorcycle
Squad, when in that year the motorcycle division was merged with the
NYPD's Accident Investigation Squad to officially form the NYPD Highway
Patrol. The Highway Patrol patch was created, however, five years later
