FILE - New York City Police Department personnel gather at the entrance to a subway stop in the Brooklyn borough of New York, April 12, 2022. Mayor Eric Adams, a former New York City police captain, took office this year with a central focus on making the city feel safe and trying to return it to some sense of normalcy post-pandemic.
