When MacMillan started at the transit agency in the 1980s, only about 80 officers patrolled the system, he said. Now, about 250 do. During his tenure, MacMillan spearheaded a public awareness campaign about sexual harassment on the T, in partnership with the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, which served as a model for other major campaigns across the country, according to the report.
