Members of the Port Authority Special Police Squad that attempts to thwart jumpers on the George Washington Bride have been given new orders.

The ‘Suicide Squad' is no longer supposed to try to grab the jumpers, but have been told to wait for a member of the Emergency Services Unit to arrive on the scene.
