Sheriff’s deputies focus extra resources on buses, trains during 9/11 anniversary

LOS ANGELES COUNTY — Extra sheriff’s deputies and resources will keep an eye on the county’s buses and trains Sunday during the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is responsible for patrolling the buses and trains of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
“Although there have been no specific threats against the transit system for 9/11, the sheriff’s department and Metro are committed to the safety of their patrons, will remain vigilant and exert every effort to curtail any potential threat to the system and the riding public,” sheriff’s Metro Transit Services Bureau Capt. Dan Cruz said in a written statement.
More than 723,000 people board Metro buses and trains on an average Sunday, officials said. Metro railways extend 79.1 miles through the county.
Cruz asked anyone who sees suspicious activity at any Metro station or on any train or bus to report it immediately by calling (888) 950-7233. Tips can also be left anonymously with L.A. Crime Stoppers by calling 800-222-8477.
