Governor Kathy Hochul announced on Wednesday that she would send soldiers from the National Guard and State Police to the New York City subway system to assist with bag checks and patrol platforms.

Ms. Hochul claimed that commuters and guests to the city would feel more secure if there was a noticeable show of force in the system, which is run by the state-run Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

More law enforcement would bolster the already substantial presence in the subways, where Mayor Eric Adams issued an order for an additional 1,000 cops in February in response to a 45 percent increase in crime in January over the same period the previous year.

Bag checks in the busiest stations of the city will be carried out by 1,000 authority personnel, State Police, and National Guard men, according to Ms. Hochul.

There will be 250 more people from the State Police and MTA in addition to the 750 members of the New York National Guard.

They will ensure that no firearms are brought into the subways by collaborating with the New York Police Department.
