MTA Police Force

MTA Police

Attention MTA Customers: Due to the increase in theft of hand held devices, we ask that you review our Anti-Theft brochure to help you learn ways to keep you and your devices safe!

The MTA Police Force is committed to helping everyone feel safe and at ease when they ride public transportation. It is a mission that the Maryland Transit Administration Police Force takes on every day of the year, with dignity and respect for all. Statistics confirm the depth of that commitment. Incidents of crime are consistently lower in and around MTA stops, stations and local communities where MTA Police are on patrol.

In addition to protecting our riders and vehicle operators, MTA Police are responsible for enforcing the law and assuring the security of MTA property and revenue.

The approximately 150 sworn officers and 80 civilian employees who comprise the MTA Police Force are dedicated to providing the highest standards of law enforcement to the citizens of Maryland. Our multi-jurisdictional approach throughout Baltimore and surrounding counties is based on longstanding partnerships with allied local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.

The MTA Police Force is both multi-dimensional and flexible in its approach to providing security to all members of the transit community. Our strategic programs are designed to offer the utmost in protection in the most efficient manner possible. These approaches include:

  • Uniform Patrol and Plainclothes Units
  • Detective Unit
  • Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) Teams/Tactical Unit
  • Video Surveillance Teams
  • Bicycle Patrol Squad
  • Motorcycle Patril Squad
  • K-9 Police Officer Unit
  • Homeland Security Drills
  • Weekly Zone Enforced Unified Sweeps

The MTA Police Force rigorously utilizes the MTA Comp Stat process to follow up, identify trends, deploy resources rapidly and maximize accountability.

We rely on citizens as partners in our efforts, and have established the “See Something, Say Something” citizen transit awareness program for citizens to report suspicious or criminal activity.
