(Poughkeepsie, NY)  --  Law enforcement agencies are working to improve how they would respond to emergencies at Metro-North stations.

Officials with the MTA, Amtrak, TSA and the Department of Homeland Security, as well as state and local police, took part in a safety drill yesterday at the Rhinecliff, Poughkeepsie, New Hamburg and Beacon stations. Homeland Security officials say more drills will be held in the future at train stations on the Hudson Line.
