The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority is growing uniformed police patrols after a bomb partially exploded on a crowded London subway practice.
MBTA Transit Police Superintendent Richard Sullivan stated Friday that the MBTA has not been made conscious of any menace towards the system.
Sullivan says the company’s “ideas and prayers” are with these affected by Friday’s bombing. Greater than 20 individuals have been injured within the blast. The nation’s terror menace degree was raised to “important.”
Sullivan says the assault serves as a reminder that transit methods are a “goal wealthy surroundings for these with nefarious intent.”
He says the MBTA will improve its uniform presence on the system. The company will deploy plain-garments officers particularly educated to detect behaviors exhibited by those that pose a menace.
