The Amtrak Police Department

The Amtrak Police Department (APD) is a national police force committed to protecting the customers, employees, and stakeholders of Amtrak. Our more than 450 sworn and civilian personnel located at more than 30 locations in 46 states conduct a range of behind-the-scenes and front line security measures to ensure Amtrak employee, customer, and infrastructure safety and security.

APD is responsible for ensuring the safety and security of over 30 million customers traveling to more than 500 destinations in 46 states, the District of Columbia and three Canadian provinces, on more than 21,400 miles of routes. APD partners with federal, state, local, rail and transit law enforcement agencies to provide a police presence at a majority of Amtrak stations and along the rights-of-way.
