Statement from TPD Superintendent Sullivan re: Facebook posting

TPD Statement by Supt. Richard Sullivan:
Upon learning of an incident regarding an interaction between Transit Police officers and a group of young people that was posted and widely distributed on social media we took immediate steps to ascertain what transpired. Thus far I have reviewed public safety cameras, audio tapes and spoke with MBTA employees as well as the MBTA passenger who raised the matter.  My preliminary findings suggest our officers conducted themselves in a calm and professional demeanor. We take great pride in the men and women of the Transit Police Department. The  cornerstone of our philosophy is Community Policing in the truest, purest sense of the word. Our officers are trained to diffuse situations not exacerbate them.

Again, my preliminary findings suggest TPD officers requested a disorderly group of young people exit from the train with the understanding and explicit directions they would be allowed to board the next southbound train. The group of young people agreed to this solution/outcome and disembarked without further incident. There was another young male, who was seated in close proximity to the group,  who was also asked to exit the train. Once off of the train, this male explained he was NOT with and/or associated with the group. This was confirmed by the larger group as well as an independent passenger. At this point the young male was allowed back on the train and continued about his business.
TPD has also communicated with the young male's mother. We are continuing to look into this matter and are committed to serving our riding public with the utmost dignity and respect.
