Riders, robberies, and violent attacks, RTA's chief on securing the system

Many baseball fans are using the Rapid to get to the games. With recent attacks, some that happened in broad daylight, that's a concern.
 
In an exclusive interview our Ed Gallek spoke with the RTA police chief, John Joyce about everyone's safety.

According to Joyce, RTA has extra police manning the buses watching for any trouble. Even though recent, violent attacks, have even been caught on camera, the chief called RTA, "safe."

There are always lots of extra riders on buses and trains opening day for the Indians.

"We do put people on overtime and it does make a difference. For instance Friday, April 4 I'll have an additional 12 officers on the platforms," explained Joyce.

Joyce pointed out that not every crime can be prevented and they don't have enough staff to put a police officer on every bus or train.

With that said, he solidified, "I'd like to say this, we have a very safe system."
