National Guard, State Troopers Deployed to Monitor Subways

In response to a recent surge in NYC subway crime, Governor Kathy Hochul announced that 750 National Guard members will be deployed to subways and conducting bag searches at entry points.

NYPD statistics indicate a 13% increase in subway crime since the beginning of 2024, though it has decreased compared to February of the previous year. Notable incidents include a severe attack on a train conductor in Ocean Hill and a series of criminal acts affecting subway users.

In response, Governor Kathy Hochul announced that 750 National Guard members, alongside 250 state troopers, will be deployed to assist the New York Police Department in conducting bag searches at subway entry points.

Mayor Eric Adams has announced the reinstatement of bag inspections at select subway checkpoints throughout New York City as a measure to curb crime rates.
