Operation RAILSAFE was developed through a partnership between the Amtrak Police Department (APD), New York Police Department (NYPD), and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in May 2010. The goal of Operation RAILSAFE’s training component is to strengthen coordination and integration between and among Amtrak’s stakeholders (e.g. emergency responders, host railroads, transit agencies, law enforcement officials, municipalities, etc.) and improve the security of passengers, employees, and infrastructure from acts of terrorism. By enhancing response, information sharing, and collaboration capabilities, the training is also consistent with the National Infrastructure Protection Plan, Transportation Sector Specific Plan, and the National Response Framework. It is also aligned with the planning, prevention, protection and community resilience core capabilities outlined in the National Preparedness Goal.

Any reports of crime or suspicious activity must be reported to the Amtrak Police National Communication Center at (800) 331-0008.
