bart police

In the past couple of months, BART police have demonstrated some … regrettable behavior. Allow us to refresh your memory: shot a guy, (apparently) caused a guy’s head to go through a window (watch the video here!) and recently had their taser privileges taken away. Still, we see some kinda skeezy-looking characters on those trains and we’re glad to know that BART police exist. In any case: this summer BART cops become bike cops.

Announced in honor of Earth Day, BART police will be ditching their patrol cars for bikes, thereby saving money and doing the environment good. BART also hopes the change will help reduce crime by increasing BART police visibility. The squad will consist of 64 officers and CFOs, who will hit BART stations and parking lots this summer—after taking an intensive (24-hour) training course ….

Their bikes will be equipped with missiles just in case just kidding.
