Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee unveiled the program, labeled Bus Safe, during a press conference on Friday. According to a Metropolitan Transit Authority of Houston¬†(METRO) press release, agencies involved in the scheme will, ‚Äúride buses, perform random bag checks, and conduct K-9 sweeps, as well as place uniformed and plainclothes officers at Transit Centers and rail platforms to detect, prevent and address latent criminal activity or behavior.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúWhile local law enforcement agencies focus on overall safety measures noted above, representatives with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will also be on hand, lending their counter-terrorism expertise and support during the exercise,‚ÄĚ states the press release.
‚ÄúIf you think you‚Äôre going to be a bad actor on buses, get ready. You are going to have a short-lived time frame,‚ÄĚ Jackson Lee said during the press conference. The Congresswoman is a staunch advocate of the TSA, having¬†recently chastised the passage of a new law¬†that allows airports to evict TSA agents and replace them with private screeners by claiming it would lead to a new 9/11-style attack.
