With more than 18,000 people using the El Metro bus system in Laredo each day, we sought to find out what measures are in place to keep passengers safe.
Officials tell us they employ state-of-the-art equipment and cameras to record audio and video surveillance. A few weeks ago, the Laredo Police Department tracked down an alleged purse snatcher caught on camera stealing from a woman at a bus stop.
With surveillance and the unblinking eyes of cameras, police still urge people to their distractions to a minimum and be aware of their surroundings, both of what and who may be around.
They stress personal preparedness is the best form of defense.
