Sacramento Regional Transit District Police Services

See It, Hear It, Report It

Safety is Everyone's Business

The Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT) has never been more safe or efficient. SacRT has invested in new technology and training techniques in order to provide a level of security necessary to deter criminal activity or disruptive behavior.

Despite better training and advanced technology, crime and the threat of terrorism are realities in America and across the world today. But one of the strongest weapons SacRT and law enforcement have to keep the system safe is the constant attention of our passengers.

By recognizing suspicious behavior and being aware of your surroundings, you can help keep yourself and other passengers safe.

Unattended Packages

If you see something unusual, say something. Trust your instincts. Report unattended items.

There have been many steps taken to secure the SacRT system. But we can't do it on our own. There are just a few hundred SacRT frontline employees and over 100,000 passengers on weekdays. If you commute on SacRT, you are probably more familiar with your particular stations and fellow commuters than anyone else, including SacRT employees. You are the best person to spot when something looks unusual or suspicious. We are asking you to help keep SacRT safe for everyone by reporting unattended packages or suspicious behavior.

What do we mean by suspicious behavior? Here are some examples:

  • Acting nervous, sweating inappropriately
  • Taking pictures or videotaping in areas of no interest to the general public
  • Attempting to get into an area that is off limits
  • Leaving a package, backpack, or briefcase and hurrying away from the area

Report any unattended items to a SacRT employee. Here are some points to be aware of when observing a suspicious package:
  • Is it out of the way or hidden?
  • Was it abandoned by someone who quickly left?
  • Does it have lumps, bulges or protrusions like wires, tanks or bottles?
  • Is it surrounded by clouds, mists, gases, vapors or odors?
  • Does it have a threatening message attached to the outside?

What should you do when you observe something out of the ordinary? Report it to a SacRT employee or contact the local law enforcement agency
