More officers are working the transit bureau and some special operations have targeted theft of electronic devices.

Officers, under the direction of Police Commissioner Bill Bratton, have also been writing tickets for jumping the turnstyles and disturbing the peace. Those numbers have increased dramatically.  As of May 2014, the New York Police Department has arrested more than 240 people on misdemeanor charges related to acrobatics. This time last year, police had made fewer than 40 such arrests.
