Increased Security Presence On Golden Gate Bridge

Sponsored by:

There will soon be ten more officers patrolling the Golden Gate Bridge. The bridge district board of directors approved the new hires today at a cost of about 600 thousand dollars a year.

Bridge spokeswoman Mary Currie says the move will give the district a force dedicated to protecting the bridge all day, every day. It´ll take several months to hire the new officers.

Currie wouldn´t be specific about what they´ll be doing, but says they´ll be patrolling the bridge by foot, car, scooter and bike.
