Guardian Angels Expand Metro Patrols

By Greg Peppers

The Guardian Angels say members will start patrolling Metro's Green Line three nights a week. The expansion comes a week after a large fight broke out at the L'Enfant Plaza metro station. Chapter President Joseph Ayala says about two dozen people will be involved in the patrol and they hope to be a deterrent.

"We're hoping by having a presence in the system, a lot of that will be deterred. And then we're also hoping to get some of the young people who have all that energy to possibly get involved with the Guardian Angels and become role models and use that energy to do something positive," Ayala says.

The group already patrols the area around the Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro station on Friday nights.
