Our New Dog-Cop Duo: Snoopy and Officer Stoner

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Tue, Oct 30, 2012 at 1:32 PM

Keep your ticket handy: TriMet is bumping up its security team. Since October 2011, TriMet has cracked down on fare-jumpers, issuing six times as many citations as it did in the previous year. Today, the public transit agency announced that it has hired six new fare enforcement officers this week—bringing its total number to 26—and a new K-9 team funded by a federal grant.

Who is on this K-9 team? A black lab named Snoopy and a transit cop named Officer Stoner.

I'm not sure if Boat Cop needs any allies, but if he doesn't feel like playing Bus Cop, Snoopy 'n StonerTM will have it on lockdown.
