TSA recognizes Houston METRO’s Chief Lambert

Posted on February 21, 2008

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) recognized Chief Thomas Lambert, sr. vice president for public safety and chief of police for Houston’s Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (METRO), for his outstanding devotion to security within the mass transit sector.  

TSA Administrator Kip Hawley presented Lambert with a certificate of appreciation for his tireless work to secure mass transit and for his involvement in the TSA Transit Policing and Security Peer Advisory Group.  

“Chief Lambert’s exemplary leadership and devotion to duty fostered a commitment to security that pervades management, law enforcement and employees at all levels,” Hawley said.  

METRO has one of the nation’s most effective transit security programs and continuously ranks in the top 5 percent of security ratings of all assessed mass transit systems.
