Wife Of BART Police Officer Killed On Duty Files Lawsuit, Says BART Ignored Husband’s Pleas For Training
Sgt. Tommy Smith was shot and killed by a fellow BART officer during a search of a Dublin apartment last year. Smith’s widow said she is filing a lawsuit against BART, saying the transit agency ignored her husband’s pleas for more training.
One year after a BART Police officer was killed in the line of duty by his partner, the officer’s family has filed a lawsuit, accusing the transit agency of improper police training.
BART wants its officers to be more familiar with the beats they patrol. So officials have divided four zones into five and divided those even further.
