SEPTA’s Transit Police are on strike
After much talk, SEPTA’s Transit Police Officers are officially on strike.
To fill the security gap, SEPTA will bring in local police and private security. Supervisory transit police will be working extended shifts to provide a steady presence at terminals, transfer points, hot spots, and transit corridors. Private security guards will be assigned to locations as needed, with a focus on the Market-Frankford and Broad Street Line, and the Philadelphia Office of Emergency Management will also provide logistical support.
As of now, all of SEPTA’s transit services are operating as scheduled.
