Transit Police

Establishing a police department to protect both riders and frontline personnel.

CapMetro is building a team of transit-dedicated police officers for instances when law enforcement is truly needed. We currently contract peace officers, but our future in-house team will be trained on crisis intervention, people-centric policing and fair & impartial policing.

Our Story

The Transit Police is part of our three-team approach to our Public Safety Program, which you can read more about on this page. We were previously hiring contracted TCOLE certified officers. The CapMetro Board of Directors approved the creation of a transit police in August 2021. Since then, CapMetro has selected a chief and had extensive conversations with the community and employees to lay the foundations for the department. Our Transit Police team includes a Chief, Assistant Chief, Captain and dispatchers.
