NATIONAL LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE ON TRANSIT SECURITY. REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS. HELD IN PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA IN MARCH 1995
As a result of the concern of the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and security chiefs of public transit systems throughout the country on the effect of transit system security on ridership, the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA), under an FTA grant, held the National Leadership Conference on Transit Security in Philadelphia, March 15-17, 1995. The purpose was to identify for discussion police and security needs issues, as well as the role of general managers in security. Attendees were divided into four teams which considered 1) what management systems can be installed to facilitate enhanced transit security, 2) what role can the ridership play in enhancing transit system security, 3) how can facilities and vehicles be improved to enhance security, and 4) how can employees be involved in enhancing security in transit systems. While each team approached security from a different perspective, common themes emerged. The elements of these are included in this report as unified recommendation for enhancing transit security.
