RTA offers a program called Operation KidWatch where children can learn about safety and security while interacting in a positive manner with police officers. Operation KidWatch also creates child IDs, where in the event of an emergency, parents will have updated information on their child including a recent picture, thumbprint, height, weight, eye color, etc.
Upon request, we are able to provide safety talks, demonstrations and even the opportunity to do a Q/A with our K-9 handlers and their dogs! Children get the opportunity to hear first-hand stories. If you are hosting an upcoming school event such as a fair, safety day, etc. and you are interested in having a presentation by RTA’s Transit Police, please contact;
