TRANSIT CRIME STUDY
This report presents statistic data and information which enabled a determination that the northeast region of New Jersey is the only location in the state where transit crime statistics are collected and tabulated. Security systems and techniques are evaluated and several systems are chosen as possible successful countermeasures for the high transit crime locations in the region. Two-way radio communication is suggested for the bus and subway locations. Helicopter Track Patrols are suggested for the commuter rail locations. All these systems are examined and funding priorities are established. Activities necessary for evaluation of the recommended security systems are included.
