Metro Transit Police increase patrols during this evening’s rush hour


Metro Transit Police Chief Ronald Pavlik has ordered all day-shift patrol officers to remain on duty through this evening’s rush hour to increase the security posture of the transit system.

Metro is taking this step in an abundance of caution. There is no specific or credible threat against the Metro system at this time.

Customers are urged to report suspicious activity or unattended packages by calling Metro Transit Police at (202) 962-2121. Customers are encouraged to program this number into their mobile device.

Metro Transit Police continue to monitor events in Boston and will take appropriate measures to heighten security.
