Definitions

Incident: an event where one or more offenses are committed by the same offender(s) at the same time & location.

Incident Report: unofficial documentation of a security-related incident, completed by officers on the MetroLink Task Force; not the official crime report.

Offense: criminal offense(s) that occur during an incident.

Offense Types:

Passenger Conduct: crimes that are less serious, but that profoundly affect passengers’ perception of security and that consume a disproportionate amount of time and resources available to transit police and security forces (e.g., curfew & loitering laws, disorderly conduct, fare evasion, drug abuse violations, driving under the influence, drunkenness, sex offenses, trespassing).

Property Crimes: crimes that involve the property of the transit agency or the personal property of passengers & employees (e.g., arson, burglary, larceny/theft, motor vehicle theft, vandalism).

Passenger Crimes: all crimes that passengers/employees generally consider a potential threat to their personal safety (e.g., assault, homicide, rape, robbery, suicide/attempted suicide).

Proactive Policing: police work that deters crime, reduces disorder, reduces fear of crime, or remedies specific concerns in a given area; police action that occurs before a crime is committed.
