The 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.

• 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 has long allowed the concealed carry of handguns by those with a Concealed Handgun License (CHL) on its vehicles. The law was amended in the last state legislative session and is changing January 1 to allow handgun license holders to openly carry their handgun in a shoulder or belt holster.
