Cops on the Metro
Posted by Michael Signer

In the blog-as-actual-reportage vein, there were tons of transit police on the Orange Line of the D.C. Metro this morning.  By my count, there were at least eight in the Courthouse station near where I live -- three (with dogs) walking out of the stop as I entered the station, six on the platform, and then another two riding on the car next over from mine.

I guess it's either scary or secure-feeling, depending on your perspective.  I'm not sure what this means, if anything, but figured it would be worth noting.  Anyone out there notice anything similar?

I didn't notice any on the red line.

One entered my car briefly this morning (on orange), but they were just handing out business cards. They are hiring apparently.

I heard it was related to Ramsey's declaration: (from the WP)

WITH 14 PEOPLE killed within the first 11 days of July, D.C. Police Chief Charles H. Ramsey was on solid ground in declaring a "crime emergency" Tuesday. A 14 percent rise in robberies over the same period last year also argues forcefully for a step up in policing. As this latest surge amply demonstrates, no quadrant of the city is beyond the reach of crime. The emergency declaration will allow the chief to quickly deploy the department's 3,800 officers to crime hot spots or wherever additional patrols and plainclothes police are needed.
