Transit Police statement regarding London 09/15/2017

Statement from Superintendent Sullivan:

" our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by the terrorist incident on the London Underground. This serves as a stark reminder transit systems around the world are a target rich environment for those with nefarious intent. Although we have no actionable intelligence nor have we been made aware of any threat, credible or otherwise, against the MBTA we will increase our uniform presence on the system. Additionally, we will deploy plainclothes officers specially trained to detect behaviors exhibited by individuals who pose a threat to our riding public. We will also closely monitor our public safety camera system. We encourage everyone to go about their business but remain aware of their surroundings and contact us should they see anything they deem suspicious. Together we can maintain as safe a system as possible ".
