Amtrak Police Operation Rail Safe

Good Afternoon,

On behalf of the Amtrak Police Department and America’s Railroad, I’m pleased to invite you or someone from your agency to participate in Amtrak’s Operation RAILSAFE Partner Training Event being held in Pittsford, VT on August 10-11, 2022, 2022. This will be the 73rd Operation RAILSAFE Partner Training Event held in the nation. Our previous events have all received outstanding reviews by the participants, so I hope that you will be able to participate and bring this valuable information back to your agency.

The Operation RAILSAFE Partner Training Event is a one-and-a-half-day program designed to strengthen coordination and integration between Amtrak and our partner first responder and emergency management agencies. The course will cover the following topics:  

Day 1:

  • Introduction to Amtrak  
  • Amtrak Police Intelligence Gathering and Sharing  
  • Terrorism Trends in a Transportation Environment  
  • General Railroad Safety  
  • Arriving on Scene – Safety, Command, Control, and Coordination in a Deadly Environment  


Day 2 will consist of two tabletop exercise scenarios focused on:

  • Suspicious packages
  • Active shooters

 

Please R.S.V.P. by registering online at www.railsafe.net, and use Amtrak2022! as your course registration password no later than August 2, 2022. Once you have registered, a calendar invite will be sent to your email account with read-ahead materials to include the agenda, address of the training site location, and parking information.  

If you are unable to attend or think this course would better benefit another individual in your organization, please feel free to forward this invitation. We are trying to establish a working group for the entire area as we prepare to launch new service in July, 2022 within your community.
