Transit Police Chief Explains Metro Crime Stats

Most larcenies are parking areas. In 2008, about half the crimes were in parking areas, Transit Police Chief Michael Taborn tells the Metro board this morning.

See those crime stats here on Metro's Web site.

I've got a letter from a reader that I'll share with you soon in which he describes the difficulty he's been having in reporting the theft of his bicycle from a station in Prince George's County. He says it's been impossible to report the theft to transit police over the phone. So I'm wondering if other travelers have had any similar difficulty. Share your experiences with me via e-mail at
