MBTA Safety Awareness Training, August 21, 2014The MBTA emphasis on public outreach and safety is in good hands with the MBTA Operations Training Department and MBTA Transit Police as Subway Instructor Tony Whitley, left, presented on Thursday, August 21 to 180 students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades at Boston’s UP Academy middle school.

MBTA Deputy Transit Police Chief, Patrol Division Night Commander Kenneth Green works with the MBTA Operations Training Department on Community Outreach to schedule and present important information for youth and first-time riders. The collaboration provides basic information about the MBTA and teaches students and other riders about personal safety while riding the T.

The MBTA Safety Awareness class most often reaches students in grades 6-12. Kenneth Green in 2012 first collaborated on Transit Safety Awareness for the City Heroes program. The Boston Police Department, Boston E.M.S. and Transit Police present to teenage youth ages 14-18 from the Youth Police Partnership and Children’s Services of Roxbury, offering important safety tips.

Tony Whitley’s presentation advanced UP Academy’s school community commitment to core values of Achievement, Scholarship, Perseverance, Integrity, Respect, and Enthusiasm. The MBTA and Transit Police congratulate the school and students for a rewarding session!
