BART Police Chief Kenton Rainey announced this afternoon that the BART Police Department is revamping the way it conducts residential parole searches and arrest warrants, reports SF Weekly.

The change comes nearly a week after BART Police Sgt. Tom Smith was shot to death by fellow cop Officer Michael Maes as the two conducted a probation search at a Dublin, Calif., apartment.

Smith leaves behind his wife Kellie -- who is also a Bay Area Rapid Transit cop -- and his 6-year-old daughter.

After that incident, Rainey decided that, effective immediately, all planned residential parole and probation searches, search warrants, or Ramey warrants must have the written approval of the Deputy Chief for Patrol Operations or his designee before they are executed.
