Stepping Up Overnight Patrols In Bronx

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

The New York City Police Department is stepping up its overnight patrols in parts of Brooklyn and the Bronx.

The department is increasing its police presence because of a recent spike in deadly street violence in the two boroughs.

The number of officers on the street from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. in 23 precincts could double or even triple.

Police believe high-visibility patrols could deter violence and catch criminals shortly after they act.
