MBTA unions object to TSA patrols

The unions said the program "deceives the public" by insinuating that the TSA employees are police officers. The MBTA Police Patrolman's Association has been trying to get more funding and resources recently and plans to file legislation this fall to merge with the Massachusetts State Police.

TSA spokeswoman Ann Davis said TSA personnel are not purporting to be law enforcement officers. ‘‘TSA personnel work hand in hand with the Transit Police...and any and all suspicious activity is referred to the MBTA Transit Police.’’
