Police Team

The Police team is the law enforcement division of the Resource Protection team. Railroad police are provided police authority from state and local governments and are authorized interstate authority by the federal government. Our community is best described as being 32,500 miles long and 100 feet wide, crisscrossing hundreds of local and state jurisdictions along the way. Railroad police are active in all forms of police duties. BNSF Police analyze statistical data to discover crime trends, use K-9 units and proactive uniformed patrol to combat trespassing and cargo thefts, and actively participate with other police agencies to investigate crimes committed on railroad property.

Canine Police

The BNSF Police Canine teams have gained widespread recognition throughout the law enforcement community. Police canine teams provide many services to support the Police team, including:

  • Deter crime - often the mere presence of a canine unit will discourage criminals.
  • Expedite train searches.
  • Discourage trespassers.
  • Detect explosives.
