Roundtable Brings Together Security Professionals

Approximately 70 public transit security directors, emergency managers and police chiefs, and representatives from FBI, TSA and FEMA convened at APTA’s 2018 Security and Emergency Management Roundtable, June 8-9 in Denver.

Following opening remarks from APTA President and CEO Paul P. ­Skoutelas, TSA Administrator David Pekoske provided a stakeholder update and fielded questions.

The first half of the day included presentations on the use of unmanned aircraft systems and other technologies and an overview of the Denver Regional Transportation District’s Police Department.

The event included a discussion on the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment and assault, personal security in public transit and homelessness and its impact on public transit.

FEMA provided information on the upcoming Transit Security Grant Program submission process and deadline. In addition, TSA provided an update on the Baseline Assessment for Security Engagement program, and TSA and the APTA Enterprise Cyber Security Working Group gave a presentation on cybersecurity.
