Transit Police

I took these about 10 minutes ago.

It is common knowledge that you rarely ever see Transit Police out during peak travel times checking ticket. I was a bit shocked when I stepped into King George Station to find police at the bottom and the top of the escalator handing out tickets. Is this one of the Transit Police's new initiatives? Are we going to see more police during peak?

A huge team of transit police and security people were checking fares at the bottom of the escalator in Waterfront the night of the last Canucks game.

I'm always glad to see security people around the stations and on board the trains. I don't feel unsafe most of the time, but often wonder how long it would take for someone to arrive if there was a problem.
