MBTA Line Safety Blitz, October 2012The MBTA Transit Police and local police departments along the MBTA Franklin Line within the past week conducted an operation called the Franklin Line Safety Blitz. 

The operation was intended to educate the public about the risks of trespassing on the railroad’s right of way.

The police departments of Dedham, Westwood, Norwood, Walpole, Norfolk and Franklin, assisted by officers of the MBTA Transit Police, checked the MBTA right of way that passes through each community. 

Trespassing on the railroad right of way is unlawful under Massachusetts General Law Chapter 160 § 218, and an “arrestable” misdemeanor in the officer’s presence.
