Our Volunteers Support “Don’t Touch the Operator”
SCPS volunteers supported Transit Police in creating a public awareness video for the increased number of assaults on bus drivers throughout the city. Promoting the safety message “Don’t Touch the Operator,” the public awareness campaign aims to improve workplace safety for those operating the city’s public transports.
