Sacramento RT installs cameras at station after officer shooting

Posted on August 3, 2017

SACRAMENTO — Sacramento Regional Transit (RT) installed 14 surveillance cameras and made other safety improvements at the station where a deputy was shot in the face last month during a scuffle on the station platform, The Sacramento Bee reports.

Deputy Alex Ladwig was shot June 27, allegedly by a man whom Ladwig had approached to check for his train ticket. Sheriff’s officials called the attack unprovoked, based on witness statements and video of the incident.

RT officials say the station is their “most challenged,” partly because it is more isolated than other stations, situated away from homes and other businesses. Also, the station sits near the freeway, requiring some users to take the stairs or an elevator to get down to the platform. For the full story, click here.
