New York City Mayor Eric Adams is urging New Yorkers to come forward and report police officers who are using their phones while on duty on subway platforms, Your Content has learned.

In a speech delivered on April 26, marking his first 100 days in office, Adams expressed frustration with officers who neglect their responsibilities by engaging with their phones instead of ensuring public safety.

Adams acknowledged that both the public and honorable police officers are troubled by this behavior and emphasized his commitment to cracking down on crime in the city.

He stressed the urgency of the situation, citing an alarming increase in fatalities among New Yorkers this year.

In line with his priorities, Adams unveiled a revised budget plan amounting to $99.7 billion.

The funds will be allocated to address critical issues such as homelessness, mental health programs, affordable housing, and education.

Since assuming office, Adams has been steadfast in his mission to restore a sense of safety in New York City following the pandemic.

However, despite his efforts, violent crime rates have continued to climb. Felony assaults have risen by 21% compared to the previous year, robbery cases have surged by nearly 47%, rape incidents have seen an increase of nearly 15%, and the number of shooting victims has risen by 8%.

By encouraging citizens to report police officers who are neglecting their duties, Eric Adams aims to create a safer environment for all residents of New York City, according to PIX11.
