Los Angeles police beefed up security Friday on Southland bus and rail lines Friday in response to a rush-hour explosion on a London subway train that injured more than two dozen people.

“The LAPD’s Counterterrorism and Special Operations Bureau has been in contact with UK officials and U.S. law enforcement agencies and has determined there is no evidence of a nexus between the attack in London and Los Angeles,” according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

“As a precautionary measure, however, the LAPD will increase its presence on MTA rail and bus lines and ensure that major tourist venues see increased security measures,” police said.

Police added that the “most important security measure is the vigilance of our community and making sure you report suspicious activity.”

“If you see something, say something,” police said.

People can report suspicious activity directly to the LAPD by downloading and using the iWatch app from the Apple or Android stores.

Also, calls can be made anytime to (877) LAPD-247, or to Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
