DEPARTMENT STRUCTURE

The department seeks to accomplish its mission through effectively deploying police officers, fare enforcement officers, and security guards throughout the transit system, to include buses, trains, passenger facilities, the transitway mall, and HOV lanes.

DART Police Officers patrol DART bus stops, bus transit centers, rail stations, DART Rail and TRE trains, DART operating facilities, and regularly respond to emergency alarms on buses and trains.

DART's Fare Enforcement Officers ride DART Rail and TRE and inspect passengers' fares to ensure that those aboard are riding with proper fare.

DART Motorcycle Officers primarily patrol the HOV lanes on the area freeways.

DART Bicycle Officers primarily patrol the downtown train stations, transit centers, bus stops, and rail corridor.

DART Police Canine Handlers are responsible for working with trained canines to search DART facilities.

The DART Police Criminal Investigations Unit is responsible for: processing crime scenes; criminal investigations; interacting with the medical examiners offices; gathering, preparing and distributing intelligence information; and preparing cases for court presentation.

Telecommunicators provide police dispatching services to the department, monitor the police radio channels, answer the emergency telephone lines, maintain communications with DART's bus, rail and paratransit dispatch centers, and perform warrant checks.

DART Police utilize two Mobile Surveillance Units (MSU). The MSUs are moved around to different DART locations to address various security issues.
