If someone riding near you forgets a personal item, remind them to take it along.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has initiated a nationwide campaign called: See Something, Say SomethingTM to raise the awareness of the travelling public to terrorist activities and to encourage the public to tell local law enforcement officials about the activity they may have seen.

The LA Metro Transit Watch is a quick and easy way for transit riders to communicate directly to Metro about suspicious activity or quality of ride problems at a Metro station or while riding a Metro bus or rail line. Be our eyes and ears and help make Metro more secure.
