Help us keep one of the country's largest transit systems safe for customers.
We're a full-service 24-hour licensed police department that responds to, and investigates, all crimes occurring on Metro Transit property, including buses, light rail, commuter trains, facilities, and rights-of-way throughout eight counties and 85 cities. Our 120 full-time officers and 60 part-time officers are fully-sworn peace officers with the same powers of arrest as other city or county law enforcement agencies.
Since we cover everywhere regional transit buses and trains operate, our department has the fourth largest jurisdiction in Minnesota, and we're growing along with the expanding regional transit system.
We continue to grow and change to reflect the demographics in the communities we serve. Nearly half of our force is made up of women and people of color. And more than half of the officers in our 2017 recruit academy are women and people of color, and half of them speak more than one language, including Hmong, Laotian, Spanish, Somali, Arabic and Turkish.
We're committed to building on our community policing success through shared partnerships between officers and citizens.

We have many specialized units to fulfill one mission: Protecting our community through innovation and problem solving.
