Metro Transit Police

Who we are, what we do: the department's vision statement

It is the vision of the Metro Transit Police department to, as closely as possible, achieve a transit system free from crime and disorder.

Transit Police programs are designed to enhance safety, increase ridership and preserve the quality of our system's infrastructure.

Visible, measurable and specific programs increase accountability and maximize our resources. Forming partnerships and creating liaisons with other agencies and departments maximizes aggressive law enforcement and improves strategic deployment of our officers. Officer deployment is based upon citizen and operator input as well as crime data.

The Metro Transit Police department is a vital component of Metro Transit and the Metropolitan Council. Transit Police ensure the safety and high standards necessary to attract ridership and maintain an environment conducive to a healthy, vibrant transit system.

Our vision embraces new ideas, develops each employee to maximum potential and respects established principles that support the Transit Police Department's mission.
