Learn more about additional career opportunities, minimum qualifications and hiring process on the Amtrak Police Department website. The most visible units of the APD are Patrol, Special Operations, and the K9 Explosives Detection Teams who work in tandem to deter potential threats, support security and counter-terrorism efforts, prevent crime and provide customer service.

Patrol Officers fulfill traditional policing functions to protect passengers and employees, as well as assisting persons in need, enforcing laws and regulations, and ensuring a safe environment.

The Special Operations Unit is an operational unit with squads in Washington, DC, Philadelphia, PA, New York, NY, and Los Angeles, CA who perform station surges in uniformed and plain clothes, conduct baggage screening operations, counter surveillance operations, site security, intensified right-of-way patrol, dignitary protection, and rapid response to hostage/barricade and active shooter situations.

The Amtrak K9 Explosives Detection Teams are strategically deployed at stations throughout the system. Amtrak is a leader in this field and currently has the most K-9 units in the railroad industry with vapor wake capabilities.
