King County Metro Transit believes in providing a safe and secure environment for their customers and employees. For that reason, they contract with the KCSO for a full-time police force.

About the Police Department

Our 68-member precinct team includes a chief, two captains, supervisors, detectives, deputies, bicycle emphasis team and dispatchers. We also have a dedicated Bomb Technician and Chase, a labrador retriever whose sensitive nose is trained to sniff out 19,000 different scents related to explosives and firearms.

Community Policing in a Mobile "Neighborhood"

Policing a transit system is unlike any other type of police work. A bus or train becomes a small community as people travel together. Community policing and crime prevention are very important in these mobile neighborhoods. Metro Transit Police educate operators and other transit employees about how to maintain safe and secure facilities. In addition, our deputies and detectives work on proactive projects that stop crimes before they start.

When crimes do occur, our deputies focus on a fast response. We coordinate with the other jurisdictions that transit passes through, and work with them to follow up on cases.
