NJ TRANSIT announced Text Against Terror, a new security initiative that asks passengers to send a text message to transit police if they see something suspicious on the system. “This new initiative enables us to harness the prevalence of text-messaging among our customers to enhance the security of our transit system,” said police chief Christopher Trucillo in a statement. “Texting is more discreet, so people can report their tip in a far more unobtrusive way,” said NJ TRANSIT’s Courtney Carroll. “So if something is going on next to them they can immediately report it — rather than having to move away and wait to make a phone call.” Link to full story in Transportation Nation.
