Our Mission

Although preventing crimes before they occur is our goal, it's our mission to do so in a way that respects the needs of everyone on MARTA. We believe law enforcement should be rooted in honesty and compassion for the entire community, and we believe in working hand in hand with that community to create an environment that promotes rider safety and fosters officer integrity.

That's why our officers go through rigorous training that prepares them to address safety and security concerns in a careful, respectful manner. And it's why our department was one of the first to earn certification under the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement (CALEA) in the state of Georgia.

Serving our city goes beyond getting riders from one place to the next. It involves making MARTA a safe place for everyone — regardless of where commutes may lead.


  • Treat everyone with value, dignity and respect.
  • Listen and respond to the community's ideas for improving MARTA and its security.
  • Encourage personal growth and understand the challenges of careers in law enforcement.
  • Approach law enforcement with the needs of the community at the forefront.
