BART Officers Lack Crisis Training, Chief Says

September 30, 2011  | 

The chief of the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) police department told state legislators this week that only a fraction of his officers have been trained in crisis intervention methods that would help them deal with people who are mentally ill.

Chief Kenton Rainey also revealed that the two officers involved in the July 3 fatal shooting of an intoxicated, knife-wielding transient had not received that training, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The agency also has announced it will begin rolling out on-body clip-on video cameras for its officers, reports the Conta Costa Times.
