Metro steps up security following bin Laden’s death

Metro and its local law enforcement partners have increased security on Metro’s bus and rail system today as a precautionary measure following the killing by U.S. forces of Osama Bin Laden.

“This is not in relation to any specific threat, but out of an abundance of caution,” said Metro spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein. “Customers will see an increase in uniformed officers in the system,” she said, adding that other security measures less visible to the public are also in place.
