BART Police Department Management Audit
The BART Police Department Management Audit was conducted July - September, 2013. This audit reviews specific areas of the administration and operation of BART PD and compared it with original recommendations made in the NOBLE BART Management Audit from 2009. Therefore, the agency is measured in this report based on the quality of the implementations of the recommendations made in the original report.
The NOBLE Management Audit Final Report, received on March 25, 2010, includes recommendations based on a comprehensive assessment of BART PD policies and tactics from recruitment, hiring and training to use of force and investigatory practices.
Prohibition Order Reports
BART annually presents a report to the California legislature on our prohibition order program, authorized by Assembly Bill 716.
These reports have been adopted by the Transit Security Advisory Committee (TSAC), the citizen and community oversight committee that works to ensure that AB 716 is implemented as the legislature intended.
