About DART PoliceThe DART Police force was established in 1989 as part of the transit agency's mission to operate a safe system. DART Police officers are licensed peace officers of the State of Texas who have all the rights, privileges, obligations, and duties of any other peace officer in the state of Texas while on the property under the control of DART or in the actual course and scope of the officer's employment. The law enforcement power granted to DART Police officers is subordinate to the law enforcement power of a municipality in which the power is attempted to be exercised.

More presence, more securityCustomers will see more DART Police, Fare Enforcement Officers and armed security officers at major passenger locations and on light rail trains starting March 26. DART is adding more than 30 security officers and 35 Fare Enforcement Officers to work alongside more than 200 DART Police officers. This is the latest action by the agency to improve passenger security. DART began modifying its patrol deployment plans in late 2017. It has also upgraded lighting at passenger facilities in the West End of Downtown Dallas. Other modifications are being reviewed. Cameras are already on DART buses and they are being installed on DART trains. In November, DART introduced the "Say Something" app empowering customers with a new way to directly connect with police.

• Carrying handguns on DART
DART works daily to maintain a safe system. We also know that many customers may want to exercise their right to carry a handgun while on our buses and trains. Consistent with state law, DART allows the concealed or open carry of handguns by those with a License to Carry (LTC) on its vehicles. The law allows handgun license holders to openly carry their handgun in a shoulder or belt holster. Learn more about carrying handguns on DART.
