State Governor Kathy Hochul made no secret of her frustration at yet another episode of gun violence, pledging to fight the phenomenon, along with New York City Mayor Eric Adams.

According to its official site, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) is the largest and one of the oldest municipal police departments in the United States, with approximately 36,000 officers and 19,000 civilian employees.

"In the past 25 years, the department has achieved spectacular declines in both violent and property crime, ensuring that New York City has the lowest overall rate of major crimes in the 25 largest cities in the country" we also read on the site.

Mayor Eric Adams intends to increase the number of police forces, hoping to increase general safety in public transportation. (source: NBC News)
