AS ALWAYS: Never approach an unattended item or suspicious person. If you need to report a life-threatening emergency, call 9-1-1 and give the operator your location or bus or train number.
If you "See Something" that is suspicious and not a life threatening emergency, you should contact the Metro Sheriffs. You can do this by contacting a Metro Sheriff's Deputy in person or by phone.
YOU SHOULD CONTACT AUTHORITIES WHEN:
You see a suspicious item.
You see an individual drop off a suspicious item on or near a bus or train.
You see someone using cameras (still or video), drawing diagrams or annotating on maps, using vision-enhancing devices, and being in possession of floor plans or blueprints of places throughout the transit system.
You see an individual testing or using probing techniques or attempting to gather data on the transit system.
You see an individual carrying unusual items inconsistent with other transit patrons (fuel cans, explosives, items with wires sticking out of it).
You see or hear someone monitoring law enforcement frequencies or recording response times.
You see someone soliciting on or around any bus, train or Metro property.
You see someone using or selling narcotics on or around any bus, train or Metro property.
You see a crime in progress.
