SEPTA Releases Safety and Security Plan

Philadelphia-based Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority has released a plan to address safety and security concerns for those who are homelessness, and or have substance abuse and mental health issues.

In a news release SEPTA said the number of those with these issues has grown, which prompted the public transit agency to launch its Safety, Cleaning, Ownership, Partnership and Engagement  program last year.

The most recent plan lays out a strategy to confront the problems SEPTA is facing and describes what riders, employees, policymakers and local business owners can do to help.

SCOPE outreach personnel work with the SEPTA Transit Police Department, which has increased patrols on trains and at stations in recent months.
