This morning TBD.com reported that WMATA has unvailed new signs on how to contact the Metro police.
In the wake of some high-profile incidents, Metro is apparently getting a jump on putting up new signs advertising the number for Metro transit police. The above sign was spotted by my colleague Sommer Mathis on the 92 bus last week. The sign looks a tad different from the one recently unveiled at a Riders’ Advisory Council meeting. Notice the burly cop with the tough-guy stance.
The signs should be going onto trains and buses throughout the system in the coming weeks.
What do you think about the new metro safety ads? Will they help increase the number of sexual harassment and assault incidents that are reported?
