Subway Crime Solution: More Cops

NYC PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:  

“Waking sleeping passengers on a train is an attempt to conceal the fact that we don’t have enough police officers.  Those who prey on sleeping passengers — what we call lushworkers — do so over and over again and there simply aren’t enough officers assigned in the Transit Bureau to keep them in check.  The NYPD is understaffed and temporarily taking resources from other functions and putting them in the subway is a band aid approach and not a real solution.”
