More cops, more bomb-sniffing dogs and more police snipers than ever are being deployed by the NYPD for New Year’s Eve to protect the 2 million spectators expected to cram Times Square to usher in 2018, department leaders said Thursday.

NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill said counterterrorism planners are heeding lessons from recent terrorist attacks, including three in Manhattan since September 2016.

“People will be safe,” O’Neill said, “and they should feel safe, too.”

Beginning at 11 a.m. Sunday, crosstown traffic is to be shut down from 37th to 59th streets and Sixth to Eighth avenues, and the area will be sealed off with concrete barriers, blocker cars and sand-filled trucks, said Terence Monahan, the NYPD’s patrol chief.

He said the department will also restrict trucks on those avenues from 34th to 59th streets.
