RTD Transit Police will help with public transportation security at the 57th Presidential Inauguration

Denver – The Regional Transportation District’s (RTD) Transit Police will be assisting with security in Washington, D.C. when President Barack Obama is sworn into office for his second term on January 21.

 

 

The request for help came from the Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) in Washington, D.C., to help provide adequate resources and personnel to manage the expected increase in visitors to the National Capital Region. Travel costs are being paid for by WMATA.

“RTD Transit Police have helped provide assistance during past Presidential Inaugurations and we are honored to help again,” said Transit Police Chief, John Tarbert.   

 

Law enforcement personnel are crucial during high profile national security events to ensure public safety on public transportation vehicles and at facilities; therefore, it is necessary for WMATA to supplement its transit police with officers familiar with the unique operating environment of transit systems.

For route and schedule information, call RTD’s Telephone Information Center 303.299.6000, or 303.299.6089 for the speech and hearing impaired.  RTD’s website is RTD-Denver.com.
