Private rail security urged for Phoenix

Posted on September 6, 2011

PHOENIX — The Phoenix Citizens Transit Commission unanimously approved a proposal for the Police Department to switch to a private security company to monitor the passengers for the Phoenix stretch of the 19-mile light rail system, according to The Arizona Republic. Staffing constraints due to budget issues have made it challenging for police to attain passenger inspection goals set by Metro, according to police officials.

The other two cities the system runs through — Mesa and Tempe — already use private security companies. The measure will go to the Transportation, Infrastructure and Sustainability Subcommittee and the City Council, which are expected to approve it later this month.
