Do you feel safer in the subway?

From NY1:

Newly released subway crime statistics show drops in more serious crimes but big increases in lesser offenses.

Transit police say subway robberies are down 32 percent from last year.

Three hundred and thirteen robberies have been reported in 2014, compared to 465 in 2013.

They also say major felonies in the transit system have gone down 15 percent.

Arrests for panhandling and illegally selling goods on trains have dramatically increased on the other hand. So far this year, over 400 more people have been arrested for panhandling compared to last year.

Never see cops anymore,but they are installing more cameras. So if you get killed or injured,good chance the mutt will be caught. That should make your family / friends rest easy.

Only the 904 R211-class train cars the MTA expects to purchase between July 2015 and January 2017 will have cameras, time laps recorders and wifi hopping

--And they wont run in Queens, mostly for the 4, 5, and 6 lines.
