a result of a 1993 peer review, Regional Transit took the commitment
to employee and passenger safety a step further by contracting with
both the Sacramento Police Department and Sheriff's Department to
form the Regional Transit Police Services.
Services current staffing consists of one lieutenant, four sergeants,
22 officers/deputies, 13 transit officers and 98 security guards.
Police Services personnel patrol the system by car,
foot, and riding the light rail trains.
officers receive specialized training in transit related issues
and because they are dedicated to transit policing they are able
to respond to customer needs in a more timely and efficient manner,
thereby raising the level of security on the system.
Transit Police Services officers participate in training and education
outreach programs to employees and the public.
