Railroad Security

Effective rail security entails a multi-faceted, cooperative, and unified approach marked by constant vigilance that taps a wide range of capabilities in the private and public sectors to assure preparedness and respond to security threats.

America’s railroads work hard every day to meet this objective through regular drills and exercises, security training programs and awareness initiatives, and information sharing. Effective security enhancement can only happen if all stakeholders are aligned in common purpose, which is why railroads work closely and cooperatively with the Transportation Security Administration and other agencies and directorates within the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Defense, the Department of Transportation, Transport Canada, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and state and local law enforcement agencies to ensure America’s railroads remain the most productive, safest, and most secure in the world.
