Accountability for VIA Transit Police

After we were made aware of ongoing issues with VIA Transit police, the ACT 4 SA team sat down with VIA to ask questions about some of the problems that currently exist.
Here are the questions we asked:

While we got some answers at yesterday’s meeting with VIA, we left with more questions than we came with.

Many of the answers we seek are kept behind red tape. We formally submitted a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request for documentation on officer training, discipline, and standard operating procedures that will begin to answer more of these questions and give us more insight as to how to find solutions.

VIA agreed to continued these conversations with the community — will you join us as we fight for accountability? Sign up below to stay informed!
