I have been in almost every LIRR STATION AND NYC SUBWAY STATION... by far the port Jefferson station is the worst patrolled , most vagrants of every nationality and the drug rehab facility is a holding ground for crime just as the poor commuters pull into the station!! PORT JEFFERSON WHAT ARE YOU DOUNG ABOUT IT. I would rather commute from wyandanch!!!

This is true to an extent, because there are other areas that are similar to PJS such as Huntington Station, Brentwood, Riverhead, Mastic, and Wyandanch that are very dangerous as well.

I have to say, I have seen increased patrols in the area. Coming off the LIRR at Port Jeff, I have seen at least one Patrol Car from either SCPD, MTA Police, or PJ Constable, every single time I come into Port Jeff.
