Re: MTA training (Re: Called A ''Terrorist'' By A T/O)

I've seen more police tell people that than NYCT employees - that photography either isn't allowed, or in one case "is okay if it's pictures of yourselves" - which is a bigger problem, because police of course are charged with law enforcement.

My personal experiences has been that many, many more employees say that photography is not allowed vs. policemen.

But I don't know what management has told employees. Where's the direct order you speak of? Judging from how widespread this mistaken belief is, I estimate that it had to be gleaned from a mistaken or misleading statement from supervision at MTA/NYCT and NYPD.

The direct order was a bulletin (or the like) from NYCT to the employees that says that if they see suspicious activity, they are to report it to Control. And it says that certain types of photography may be suspicious. It does not say anything about photography being illegal. And it certainly does say anything about confronting or attempting to stop the person from taking photos. It very clearly gives one thing to do: call control. That's it.
