I’m proud of the MARTA police. Each morning as I drive to the MARTA station, I know I’ll return home at night. The hour will be late, and the train station, while not deserted, will have fewer commuters than in the morning. I know I can count on the security of the police presence, guaranteeing our safety. As I leave that night train, I see the revolving blue lights from the MARTA police car in the parking lot. I see the brave men and women patrolling the platform, the station and the parking area. One night last year, MARTA had a power failure, and the entire station was thrown into darkness. Not to worry – MARTA police officers illuminated our way from the platform and out to the parking lot, lighting the way to our cars. I want to thank these courageous men and women of the MARTA police force.
