BART receives public input on next police chief

Posted on February 17, 2010

Ensuring safety on the Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) by increasing police presence on trains, in stations and parking lots should be the top priority for a new police chief, the public told BART in an online survey.

Respondents were asked to rate 14 personal characteristics or attributes desired in a new chief. Most of the qualities received high ratings; the top two were "leadership" and "ethics and transparency."

BART is releasing the results of the survey as the process of selecting a new police chief moves forward. The survey was administered through two channels: an email invitation to randomly selected riders and an open-participation format on BART's Website. A total of 835 respondents completed the survey.

Former Police Chief Gary Gee retired on Dec. 30, 2009. BART is undertaking a nationwide search to fill the position, and sought public input on what qualities and experience would be desired in a new chief.
