More cops to patrol Muni as part of public safety campaign

More police officers will be patrolling Muni in an effort to make the system safer for passengers, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Also, the public awareness campaign, “Eyes Up, Phones Down,” will soon launch. The campaign hopes to remind Muni passengers to be aware of their surroundings at stations, stops and on vehicles.

More information about the public safety initiatives will be announced this morning by Mayor Ed Lee on the Embarcadero at Mission Street.

District Attorney George Gascón, Police Chief Greg Suhr and SFMTA Director of Transportation Ed Reiskin will also attend the conference.
