  1. Tuesday, I had my TAP card checked once on board the train at 26th Street Station and then checked again 10 minutes later at Santa Monica Station. When I told the officers at Santa Monica Station about this, they were rude.

    • Hi Mark,

      They are not part of the policing contract, but Metro and LASD work with local city police to educate about transit safety, and Santa Monica PD is responsible for the areas surrounding our stations so they welcome feedback from riders who travel around these neighborhoods.
