Violence does not rest on public transportation in New York. This year, public officials have repeatedly promised to increase police presence on Metro platforms and carriages as part of the former NYPD mayor Eric Adams’ security plan, that seeks to reduce violence by taking strong measures, including combat of indigence: last February it was determined that 350 people were “living” in the underground.

Despite the announced efforts, overall serious crime on subways is up 42% year-to-date compared to the same period in 2021, and the number of homicides this year already exceeds the eight registered last year.
