RT Hosts Three Community Meetings to Discuss Safety and Security


CONTACT: Alane Masui Thursday, October 30, 2014
RT is hosting three community meetings to present RT’s Security Peer Review report, and discuss RT’s security program. RT wants to hear your comments and concerns regarding safety and security.

The purpose of the Security Peer Review held in July 2014 was to evaluate existing RT security services, policies and procedures, and to provide recommendations to help improve the safety and security of passengers while using the RT system. Topics included Police Services staffing and deployment, technology, fare enforcement, station design, and rider experience.

“During my time serving as the District’s Board Chairman, I’ve remained very focused on safety and security, as have my colleagues and our staff,” Sacramento County Supervisor, Phil Serna, stated. “It is important for RT to address concerns and understand how we can improve in order to best serve current riders and attract new customers, and it is critical we hear from the public.”
