The mission of the Maryland Transit Administration Police Force is to

professionally enforce the law, protect its transit community,

employees and facilities with dignity and respect.

 

The Maryland Transit Administration Police Force is made up of more than one hundred forty-six sworn officers and approximately seventy-eight civilian employees, dedicated to providing high quality law enforcement to the State of Maryland. Our growing Police Force is multi-jurisdictional, as we patrol Baltimore City and the surrounding counties.  We have taken a broad based approach to maintaining a safe transit system by utilizing several strategies: 

  • Partnerships and Memorandums of Understanding have been established with local, state and federal allied law enforcement agencies 
  • Uniform patrol and plain clothes units
  • Weekly Zone Enforced Unified Sweeps
  • Homeland Security Drills
  • Use of Video Surveillance 
  • Bicycle Patrol Squad,
  • A Motorcycle Unit that patrols MARC properties and enforces all traffic and law enforcement regulations
  • A team of highly trained TSA K9's that travel throughout the transit system, whose primary objective is to provide security and law-enforcement services to the public and property. 
  • We have established "See Something, Say Something" citizen transit awareness program for citizens to report suspicious or criminal activity
  • Follow up utilizing the MTA Comp Stat process to identify trends and rapidly deploy resources.
