The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has appointed a 41-year veteran of the New York City Police Department as its new head of security.
Raymond Diaz will take the title of MTA Director of Security.
Diaz is no stranger to keep commuters safe, as he was the head of the NYPD's Transit Bureau before retiring in 2011.
He will be charged with keeping the MTA's nearly 5,000-mile rail network safe, as well as coordinating security efforts with other law enforcement agencies.
Diaz also served as commanding officer at the 70th Precinct in Brooklyn.
He was brought in to rebuild trust between police and the community after Abner Louima was brutalized by officers at that stationhouse.
He starts his new job on January 6.
