BART to conduct top-to-bottom police review

Posted on April 24, 2009

On Thursday, the San Francisco Bay-based Bay Area Rapid Transit District's (BART) board of directors unanimously selected an organization to conduct a comprehensive top-to-bottom review of the BART Police Department following the January 1, 2009, officer-involved fatal shooting on a BART station platform.

"The National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) will look into all aspects of the BART Police Department," BART Board Member Carole Ward Allen said. Ward Allen chairs the board’s newly created BART Police Department Review Committee whose aim is to provide greater focus on the exercise of BART Police responsibilities and, among other things, assist the full board in establishing civilian oversight of BART Police.

"This is the latest in a series of significant steps we’re taking to ensure a similar incident does not occur again," said Ward Allen.

The review should take approximately four months and the cost of the contract is $127,688.
