Special Victims squad taking on subway sex crimes

When it comes to the New York City subway system, many people feel anything but safe. There are many reasons for this, including the fact that subway sex crimes remain a problem. Fortunately, the New York City Police Department is taking a step in the right direction by assigning its Special Victims squad to investigate sex abuse cases.

Every year, more than 600 sex crimes take place on the subway system. These crimes include but are not limited to forcible touching, sex abuse, and public lewdness. In the past, the Special Victims squad was not responsible for investigating such crimes.

A police source was quoted by the New York Daily News as saying:

"Historically, the transit robbery squad handled those cases. That was the unit that investigated all the crimes in the subways except for homicides."

Starting on Jan. 1, 2016, detectives working for the Manhattan Special Victims began investigating all sex crimes reported on the subway system in the borough. This is a big step forward, as this unit has the expertise and knowledge necessary to better crack down on perpetrators.

While this is a big move with regard to keeping the subway system safe, it could also lead to situations in which people are wrongfully accused of crimes.

In the end, it is the hope of everybody involved that the Special Victims squad is able to do their job in an effective manner, and that people who ride the subway can feel safer at all times. If this happens, everybody will be in a better place moving forward.
