Metro Transit unveils "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign
Metro Transit has teamedwith the Department of Public Safety, a Division of Homeland Security andEmergency Management to deliver a simple safety message "If You See Something, Say Something".
The new campaign has been established toalert their local authorities if they see something suspicious.
A Metro Transit bus and a light rail train carry the campaign's message andwith thousands of people utilizing public transit every day, the hope is themessage will be heard.
"Customers board Metro Transit buses and trains more than 250,000 times eachday in Minnesota'sbusiest places," said Acting Metro Transit Police Chief A.J. Olson. "Thiseffective, commonsense message raises public safety awareness among transitcustomers and others alike."
The project is jointly funded by Metro Transit and the Homeland Security GrantProgram. That program provides federal money to HSEM which passes 80 percentthrough to local jurisdictions like Metro Transit.
