MARTA Police Overview
With more than half a million people riding MARTA every day, it’s on us to make sure our riders are protected throughout their commutes. Keeping our customers safe is our top priority and the MARTA Police Department helps us carry out that mission.
Founded in 1977, the MARTA Police Department currently consists of approximately 320 sworn officers, 50 Protective Specialists, and 57 civilian employees. MARTA police officers are fully sworn and certified under the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council. Today, uniformed officers patrol our stations, parking lots, buses and trains. Additionally, plainclothes officers and K-9 units are stationed throughout MARTA's transit system.
We've made a commitment to provide a safe and secure transit environment for our patrons and employees and we will continue to improve serving our many communities.
