We share everyday moments with our neighbors, family, coworkers, friends and fellow riders. We go to work, school, bus stops, or train stations. It's easy to overlook these routine moments, but as you’re going about your day, if you see something that doesn't seem quite right, say something. You can be our eyes and ears to report suspicious activity to the UTA Police Department. You can help protect your family, neighbors, and community.
