About the Captain
Captain Seo has a 27+ year career of policing in the King County regional community. He came to Metro in 2019, and has enjoyed the challenges and dynamics at MTP. King County Metro is one of the best assignments in King County and appreciates working with the Deputies, Transit Operators, Service Quality supervisors and the rest of the team at Metro Transit.
I am proud to introduce you to the Metro Transit Police Operations Section. The Operations Section is responsible for responding to dispatched calls for service or 911 calls. In addition, they are the First Responders to incidents in the transit system often times witnessing incidents and then responding to what they observe. The Operations Section provides coverage to Metro 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days of the year to provide responsive service to the riders and operators on our transit system. MTP is also available to assist neighboring jurisdictions on high priority calls, particularly when those calls also affect transit operations. Our goal is to make our system safe and accessible for all people in King County to provide opportunities, connect communities and protect the environment. We support these goals valued by Metro Transit through visible deterrence, responsive patrol, and connecting with employees and customers of Metro Transit. Please be aware of your surroundings and call if you become a victim of a crime on the transit system. Also, if you suspect criminal conduct, a potential terroristic act, or suspect human trafficking, please call 9-1-1.
Our operations unit is comprised of:
- Patrol Deputies
- Two squads of day shift Patrol Deputies
- Two squad of swing shift Patrol Deputies
- Two squads of graveyard Patrol Deputies
The focus of these six squads is to be visible interacting with the public as well as Metro employees in order to make a safe transit system and work to constantly make it safer. This helps ensure everyone has access to our transit system.
