Transit Police Participate in RAILSAFE Partnership
New Westminster – Metro Vancouver Transit Police will again join the ranks of hundreds of law enforcement agencies across North America and internationally to participate in Operation RAILSAFE.
Commuters will have seen an increased police presence across the TransLink network. During the week of September 4 to 11, Transit Police, SkyTrain Attendants, Canada Line Attendants and members of jurisdictional police agencies including the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) have banded together during the morning and evening peak periods to heighten station patrols. The goal of the exercise is to enhance emergency readiness and communication capabilities of police and security officials who regularly work with or on rail agencies.
RAILSAFE (Regional Alliance Including Local, State and Federal Efforts) was developed in partnership in 2010 by the Amtrak Police Department, New York City Police Department and the Transportation Security Administration to demonstrate interagency cooperation and coordination in counterterrorism and emergency incident response capabilities.
Please report any, non-emergency, suspicious activity to Transit Police by texting 87 77 77 (standard carrier rates may apply) or download our free OnDuty Mobile App.
