RICHMOND -- BART will host a community meeting from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday to explain its new ways for handling public complaints and concerns about transit police.
It will take place at the Richmond Recreation Center Complex, 3230 Macdonald Ave.
In the summer of 2011, the transit agency created an independent police auditor position and a citizens review board to monitor BART police. To view more information about them, visit www.bart.gov/police auditor.
Mark Smith, BART's independent police auditor, said his agency will hold more meetings around the transit system to familiarize the public with the new civilian oversight system for monitoring police.
