MTA Boosts Employee Protection Program

Recommended Posts

[float=left]post-5097-0-23877600-1353371446_thumb.jpg[/float]The MTA has launched an ad campaign promoting a new program that offers rewards of up to $2,000 to transit riders or others who offer details to police after witnessing a crime against a transit employee.

 

The program, known as Transit Watch, was announced this year by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo in the weeks after a joint conference convened by the MTA and the Transport Workers Union Local 100 to address an increase in the number of assaults on MTA personnel.

Great way to make some money, when you see someone physically coming at a TA employee, take a video.

Smh, spoiled brats....... they might as well just walk from A to B and back to A again. But that's just me.

 

Transportation is a luxury and (based on the MTACC) a necessity, after all.

Great Idea with one major problem: Will the District Attorneys finally make any assault against a transit employee a priority and make sure that the perpetrators do the full seven years? The problem remains as i have said time and time again on other similar threads on this forum, unless the District Attorneys in this city make this a priority (and not just during an election year which is coming up next year) and push for the maximum sentence, it will continue to go on even though there is a law with a specified punishment on the books.
