Amtrak, along with the Amtrak Police Department, has a range of behind-the-scenes and front-line security measures in place to ensure passenger rail security.
Among these security measures, some of which are conducted on an unpredictable or random basis, passengers may notice any of the following in stations or onboard trains:
*With due respect to passengers' privacy, the random screening and inspection of passengers and their personal items will be completed as quickly as possible - usually in less than a minute. Passengers failing to consent to security procedures will be denied access to trains and refused carriage, and a refund will be offered.
The Amtrak Police Department recognizes the value of our passengers and employees as an extra set of eyes and ears and asks for your help in identifying possible safety or security concerns. If you See Something, Say Something.
The Amtrak Police Department encourages anyone who notices something suspicious or unusual to speak directly with our on-duty officers, station personnel, train crew members, or to dial our 24-hour call center at 1-800-331-0008, or 911 and report it immediately.
