NEW YORK (AP) - New York City police will be waking up people who take naps while riding the subway.

Police Commissioner William Bratton said Wednesday that more officers will be sent into the transit system to make sure people are staying awake.

According to the Daily News (https://nydn.us/1JYB8Dh ), Bratton says he realizes people are tired when they get off work. But he says subway snoozing puts riders at a higher risk of sexual assault and pickpocketing.

Says the commissioner: “Subways are not for sleeping.”
