ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo has signed a law requiring New York City police to provide annual reports detailing crimes, complaints and arrests on specific subway lines and bus routes.

The law says the New York Police Department will issue the report annually to the City Council, with data posted online and updated quarterly.

Assemblyman James Brennan, a Brooklyn Democrat, says in his sponsor’s memo that the measure “will provide the public information on the location of criminal activity, including sexual harassment” so progress cutting crime on the transit system can be monitored.

He says it will also provide police with data allowing them to focus on areas most needing protection.
