Mission Statement   |   About Us   |


The mission of Regional Transit Police Services is to provide for all aspects of Regional Transit's safety and security. We will strive to do this by providing dedicated, specially trained officers who will work in partnership with Regional Transit and the community to define and find solutions to problems which confront those who support, ride, or operate the trains and buses of Regional Transit.

As 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.

Police Services current staffing consists of one lieutenant, three sergeants, 22 officers/deputies, 17 transit officers and 50 security guards. Police Services personnel patrol the system by car, bicycle and foot, as well as riding the light rail trains and buses.

All 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.

Regional Transit Police Services officers participate in training and education outreach programs to employees and the public.
