MBTA Transit Police say 24 people were arrested and charged with Indecent Assault & Battery in the year following the April 2008 launch of a public service campaign designed to increase awareness of sexual harassment on trains and buses, and encourage victims to report such incidents.  That is an 85% increase over the 13 arrests made in the one year preceding the posting of hundreds of public service announcements on buses and subway trains.

The reporting of such incidents also climbed, from 48 in the one year immediately preceding the campaign launch, to 65 in the following year.
