If you see something, say something.
Your safety and security is a primary focus at CATS. Our safety and security staff work hard every day to ensure that your commute is trouble free. CATS has taken steps to ensure the safety and security of our transit system by increasing the number of safety and security personnel, installing cameras aboard all bus and light rail vehicles, park and ride lots, light rail stations, and transit facilities. But we can’t do it all on our own. We need your help in keeping CATS safe.
Safety & Security Begins With You
Start by educating yourself about safety and security aboard our vehicles. When riding, take a few minutes to become more aware of your surroundings.
Always Be Alert
There are actions you can take any time you are in public to protect yourself from criminal activity. First, be aware of your surroundings and those around you. It is easy to tune things out when you are on your cell phone or listening to your Ipod. Don’t make it easy for criminals to take advantage of the situation.
Keep your valuables out of site and keep your personal items, such as your purse, backpack, packages, etc. under your control at all times. Avoid talking to strangers and pay attention to who gets on or off at your stop. Trust your instincts. If something or someone makes you uneasy, avoid the person or leave.
