This is a guest post by Ramonica Jones, a social media specialist at METRO.
METRO police officers regularly patrol bus stops and rail lines to keep riders safe, but MPD also depends on our customers to say something if they see something.
Contacting METRO police is easy and anonymous via the MPD Connect app. Not only is reaching out to METRO police via the app discreet, it is also the fastest way to report suspicious or illegal activity to MPD.
Understandably, riders may feel uneasy about pulling out their cell phone to call police, especially while a crime is in progress; MPD Connect lets customers submit a report directly to METRO police, and even chat live - all from the palm of their hand.
While social media is quick and convenient, it's not the most efficient way to report criminal behavior. The MPD Connect app is fast – and free; all you need is a smartphone. MPD Connect is available 24/7.
So, if you're ever on board a bus or train, at a bus stop or rail platform, remember that METRO police are not far away, thanks to the MPD Connect app.
Just say something if you see something. Thank you for helping us keep our system safe.
