Garcia seeks to continue boost in police presence in NYC subways until ridership fully rebounds


The temporary surge of NYPD officers into the New York City subway system to battle a recent uptick in crime should continue until ridership fully rebounds from the COVID-19 pandemic, mayoral candidate Kathryn Garcia said Thursday.

During a press conference outside the 59th Street subway station in Midtown, Garcia said the NYPD must continue to maintain a robust presence in the transit system to not only keep the peace, but also restore rider confidence and security.
