SEPTA Transit Police Department

Welcome to the SEPTA Transit Police Department website.

Since 1981, the Transit Police Department has been dedicated to keeping customers safe and secure, while protecting SEPTA property and staff.

Nearly 260 sworn officers serve and protect within the 2,200 square-mile SEPTA service area. There are six patrol zones, allowing officers to easily respond to emergencies while empowering them to quickly make decisions and address local issues.

The Transit Police Department extends beyond the regular beat with units of specially trained officers. These units receive an additional level of training and provide specialized support in policing a public transit system.

We encourage you to check this page regularly for updates and further connect with the department using the menu items to the right.
