At least three NYPD officers were pictured posing as Amazon and FedEx delivery drivers at a subway station on Wednesday while hunting for perverts. 

According to the Instagram user who posted the original photos, the officers were trying to catch people jumping over turnstiles to avoid paying for their train ride.

The NYPD later confirmed they were plain-clothes cops, and said they were also on the lookout for perverts who prowl trains and grope unsuspecting passengers.  

Another social media user identified the station as the Myrtle-Broadway station in Brooklyn. 

In a statement to DailyMail.com, an NYPD spokesperson seemed to confirm the authenticity of the pictures saying: 'Transit Officers conduct plainclothes patrols due to the unique environment and challenges presented in the New York City Transit system.'

New York City Mayor Eric Adams pledged to crackdown on crime in the Big Apple, mentioning subway fare beating specifically. 

Mayor Adams has also reinstated the controversial Neighborhood Safety Teams, small teams of plain clothes officers. The unit was disbanded in 2020 in the wake of nationwide protests against police brutality. 

In January, Adams announced that 1,000 more officers would be deployed in what is the nation's largest subway system.  

The City & State New York published data showing that the majority of the group's arrests were for crimes such as fake IDs and stolen credit cards rather than gun possession arrests. 

Following the well publicized arrest of 'Dancing is Happiness' musician John Ajilo on June 22 at the 34th street station at the foot of the Empire State Building, Mayor Adams was quoted as saying: 'Listen, you've got to follow the rules. That is how are system got in the way that it is now, because no one was following the rules.'

Rape and robberies are up over 50% compared against the same time this year, according to the Metropolitan Transit Authority's statistics

DailyMail.com has reached out to both FedEx and Amazon for comment on the photos. 

Violent crime has become endemic on New York City's transport system in 2022. 

Rape and robberies are up over 50% compared against the same time this year, according to the Metropolitan Transit Authority's statistics. Meanwhile, felony assaults are up over 15% and grand larceny is up over 97%. 

NYPD Transit Chief Jason Wilcox told the MTA board this past Monday that the increase in larcenies were mainly on overnight trains. Wilcox said that there have been many cases where riders fall asleep on the train and wake up with items missing, reports the New York Post. 

Wilcox added: 'We are focusing on this type of crime. Our detectives are investigating these crimes. But we also ask riders to be more vigilant in this area when they travel the trains late at night.'  

In total, compared to this time last year, transit crime citations are up 40%. 

According to statistics from the MTA, there were four assaults and 82 cases of harassment New York City's transport employees in June alone. 

In 2022, there have been 35 assaults on subway trains and at stations on city employees. 

While crime is up, subway ridership is also up nearly 35% on this time last year.  

In June, it was announced that the NYPD was installing 100 hidden cameras on subway cars across the city.

The cameras are not monitored and do not transmit in real time but will be used as a back-up to help investigators establish evidence. 

The selected trains are those where 53% of subway crimes occurred. 

Crime and the crumbling infrastructure of the subway system was the subject of a June 2022 documentary, 'End of the Line.'
