New BART Chief of Police has been selected

According to BART Chief Communications Officer Linton Johnson, this afternoon General Manager Dorothy Dugger confirmed that she has selected former Fairfield Police Chief Kenton Rainey as BART's new Chief of Police. Chief Rainey will come to the BART with a long and distinguished career in law enforcement. 

Chief Rainey's job offer is contingent upon his successful completion of an extensive background check, which is required by state law.   As soon as these requirements are met, BART will make a formal announcement, which will include the Chief's start date.
