President Joe Biden will visit New York City next week to discuss combating gun crime with Mayor Eric Adams.

Sources said Biden will discuss his administration’s “comprehensive strategy” to combat gun crime, including increased funding for cities and states to hire more police officers and pay for community violence prevention and intervention programs.

The strategy also includes beefing up federal law enforcement efforts against gun traffickers.

Adams looks forward to his meeting with the Biden.

Earlier, Biden spoke with Adams by telephone on Monday night to offer his condolences over last Friday’s shooting of two New York Police Department officers.

Meanwhile, Adams also wants the police department to use facial recognition and other technology to identify people carrying weapons, expand cash rewards for tipsters who share information on gun-related crimes, and for the city to help businesses pay to install surveillance cameras.
